image for Gordon Brown gives 'For China' thumbs up

For many years an international pariah, China, with its new found wealth and status, has been attracting business interest from all around the world. Now business leaders have formed an organisation, 'For China', to promote China's interests around the world. Now Gordon Brown has lent his support, the highest profile politician so far, suggesting that he is firmly in favour of 'For China'.

"Many may have thought I didn't like 'For China'," he said yesterday, "but I have always liked 'For China' and I intend to spend as much time in it as I can possibly allow."

Greg Saatn'hav, leader of the group, explained at a press conference "we all have a load of enthusiasm and support for it, and we intend to empty our load into 'For China'".

In fact, not only business leaders have been jumping on 'For China.' Celebrities such as Britney Spears have been setting up their own personal versions of the main organisation. 'Britney Spears' For China' will admit anyone: 'there's plenty of room in here' said a spokesperson yesterday.

However, all has not gone smoothly. Dissident political figure Mai Tong has expressed dissatisfaction with the organisation. "To promote China when it has such an appalling human rights record is inexcusable,' she said yesterday. "You will never find Mai Tong in 'For China'". Boom boom.
