Kowtowing

Yet another company kowtowing to China for not recognising it's vast territorial claims. This time Gap has been made to grovel for selling T-shirts that showed an "incorrect map".

So much for the sovereignty of nations such as Taiwan, Tibet, those islands in the South China Sea....... and honest trading.

Re: Kowtowing

I've seen representations of the UK without the Shetland Islands included.  It's an outline of a country on a piece of clothing, not a geography textbook.  And they never include other territories over which we have sovereignty, like the Falklands.

Re: Kowtowing

Indeed, just China flexing it's commercial muscle I know but it does disappoint when even large companies like Gap scratch this fat cats tummy.  

Ah well, their needs and profits must I guess. Sad

Kow Towing  ? ? ?   Huh ?   thought this thread was going to be about a new "agricultural sport" to be taken up at "County/Country Fairs" around the country...

 

See how many kows your quad bike can pull over a "drag strip" in the fastest time... Cheesy

Careful there @shutter, the PC brigade is lurking.

Might get accused of making unfair fun of our third largest trading 'partner'. Wink

Re: Kowtowing

I didn't know the kow was such a large trading partner, that's a lot of methane.
