US condemns China for 'Orwellian nonsense' after Beijing writes to 36 airlines over Taiwan references

Whilst the BBC criticise President Trump for pretty much everything, pushing the views of people who call him a facist, they pretty much leave uncriticised China whose leader is now seemingly ruler for life and a country which restricts freedom of speech, however true, for non Chinese. 

'The White House on Saturday harshly criticised China's efforts to require foreign airlines to change how they refer to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, labeling the effort "Orwellian nonsense."

In a statement, the White House said the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration sent a letter to 36 foreign air carriers, including a number of US carriers, demanding changes.

The carriers were told to remove references on websites or in other material that suggests Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau are part of countries independent from China, US and airline officials said.'

You can add Tibet to that list, a country that the Chinese occupy and have ethnically cleansed since. The BBC and the seemingly antisemitic left prefer to ignore this occupation, whilst obsessing over Israel's non occupation of Judeah and Samaria. 

More on this news here at The Telegraph, not a word on the 'careful what we say' BBC.
