真正地沉默寡言的录影

Wow. Here’s a completely unedifying, utterly pointless video from Team Ignatieff, released in connection with the announcement of an upcoming trip to China in September, presumably to showcase Iggy on the world stage. The ostensible reason given however is that of “developing a greater understanding of China” and opening doors to “greater opportunities for trade.” China does, after all, account for a whopping 2.1% of our exports, you know!

Doubtless we can look forward to similar announcements of globe-trotting trips to come, most likely scheduled sometime between the end of BBQ season and the resumption of parliament.
