He should probably write an apology to Wen; Wen, for his part, has been a good sport about the whole matter.

Hmm, not sure about the "good sport" bit.
Wen was reported at reacting with "“this despicable behavior cannot stand in the way of friendship between China and the U.K.”
I think even Bush was a bit more of a good sport than Premiere Wen, and I am not a fan of Bush.

Emu,

I seem to recall a certain premier urging the university to overlook a certain incident involving a certain shoe and shoe-tosser and expressing the opinion that it is a minor matter in no un-certain terms.........

Sure this isn't just some knee-jerk anti-China rabble-rousing on your part?

I didn't hear that, and stand corrected if that's the case.

I got the impression that Bush basically shrugged it off, whereas Wen was a little more "upset" about it all, not to mention the sino-nazi commentariat.
Please note that I actually have more regard for Wen than I do Bush.
Had his initial response been more laid back (and had the Chinese media actually covered the issue without all the delay) then he would have got huge kudos from western observers, ie, this guy is cool and unruffled by the silliness of such protesters.

He's not stupid.
He got paid well and he knows that he'll get away with it.

Perhaps we should concentrate on the Baghdad thrower.
He's still hidden with all his sores after the beating.
