'Cherry Pie' is cockney rhyming slang for LIE. And that's why it's appropriate for the Chinese Government to tell us to keep out fingers out of their pie. Their pie, of course, is Tibet. And it IS a big lie.
They accuse the Dalai Lama of telling lies about the state of the country and claim that the democratic reforms (under Chinese rule) are the widest and most profound reforms in Tibetan history. Lies. 1.4 million tibetans dead does not seem a very profound reform to me.
And 'claims it freed Tibetans from a harsh theocratic feudal system' are clearly shown to be exactly what they are (LIES) because amid fears of fresh outbursts of violence during this year's anniversary, Beijing deployed thousands of troops and paramilitary police to Tibetan-populated regions. Tourists have been ordered out of the region, foreign journalists detained and even internet and text-messaging services disconnected
Keep your fingers out of our Cherry Pie, chummy!
That's the message of what is arguably the world's biggest and strongest super power who have spent the last 60 years murdering, torturing and destroying one of the worlds smallest and most peace-loving countries.
Of course, the Chinese Government would just say I was telling lies.
But then, all I want is for the people and environment of Tibet to be free from fear and suffering and destruction. What you have to ask yourself, is what China wants from them?
"Whose pie do they think it is?":
Tibet is a country full of people. If they are being treated humanely, then why the secrecy? Does China stop people looking at Beijing? They were happy enough to have the Olympics there. But Tibet? Where everyone is treated fairly - allegedly - they don't want anyone sticking their fingers in.
Too much to hide.
It's time we all stuck our digits in.
"World famous Nobel Peace Prize winner behaving like a child":http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,,25171368-25837,00.html - we could all do with behaving like such a child. The world would be a much better place if we did. In Matthew 18:1 Jesus said 'Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven'.
I must say though, in my humble opinion, the ones acting like children - in the worst possible way - are those in control of the Chinese Government.

Is that the behaviour of sensible, caring adults where the people are happy and descriptions of murder, torture, rape and environmental and cultural and religious destruction are all just 'lies'?
