Starbucks takes a bite out of Communism

The Guardian has a magnificent offer on Fridays - a voucher that entitles the reader to a free tall coffee at Starbucks.

I cut out the voucher last week, only to realise that in so doing, I had defaced the colourful centrefold feature on the Chinese Communist Party's 60 years in power celebrations.

Capitalism 1, Communism 0.


My parents went to a flag raising ceremony to celebrate the 98th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of China yesterday. Now there's a vase of plastic Taiwanese flags decorating our living room.
