And then of course, there was the news about Kidlington!

Unsurprisingly, packs of Chinese tourists have flocked to the now legendary suburban village just north of Oxford, just a stone’s throw from where I grew up.

This whole thing is really starting to go a bit crazy now.

And weirdly, none of the mainstream media seem to understand the geopolitical implications.  In fact, they don’t seem to have any idea what’s going on at all:

Anyway, we’re all obviously waiting for when the main event happens, so hopefully I’ll be posting more updates as it all develops.

It’s going to be off the chain.
