I think most countries think the Chinese are rude

What was strange about the exchange was that all of the participants shared an opinion about the Chinese trip to the UK and the problems with it, as though the visit was some infamous incident amongst the UK establishment.

It would appear that the Chinese delegation rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way on their visit.

Truth hurts.

With this and increased tariffs on British steel, the Brexiteers are discovering new-best-friend Beijing's true colours.

It's about time that someone began calling the Chinese officials on their behavior. They act like a herd of petulant children in their dealings with other nations, and they need to learn that there are consequences to that.

Not disagreeing with the above comments, but the response from the Chinese is quite reasonable and accurate about the media.

On the part of Her Majesty---indiscreet perhaps, tactless perhaps, ---but untrue?

"Not disagreeing with the above comments, but the response from the Chinese is quite reasonable and accurate about the media"

If they are talking about the media at the sewer level of Murdoch, they are spot on. Then again, I suppose you've got to compare that to the media controlled by the corrupt CCP.

Ah the privileged elitists born from socialism. Even British royals have had to give that up and move with the times...

The Chinese do seem a bit rude abroad. All that honking and spitting and smoking. Still, maybe just cultures miles apart.

The British media is riddled with “barbarians” who would benefit from a lesson in manners from China’s ancient civilisation

Don't we love the choice of terminology: "barbarians". The Global's sophisticated editorial goes on to say the British media would benefit from a lesson in manners, mind you. Manners? Oh, those, from China's ancient civilisation. Certainly not from China's modern 'civilisation'.

China is going to so regret insulting the Quern of England.

I've been to Great Britan many times and I know how much the British adore their Queen.

They will push that dirty pile of communist cash RIGHT OFF the table when it comes to protecting England's Pride and Patriotism - Especially with Queen Elizabeth and the Royals.

I believe Great Britain will respond and China IS NOT going to like at all.

Don't worry about it Saketown, the Queens got broad shoulders.

“As they experience constant exposure to the 5,000 years of continuous Eastern civilisation, we believe they will make progress” when it comes to manners, it added in the Chinese-language piece, which was not published in English.

And yet, in all that time, they never discovered the simple notion that true manners are maintaining your dignity and respect of others in the face of indignity.

Funny that.

Oh, and also not discovering tacos....

The British need to take lessons from the Middle Kingdom on how to control their media?

I remember taking a leak in Hong Kong and being in the middle of two Chinese having a high volume conversation-most off putting .....

Yes, the ancient Chinese traditions of spitting and defecating in the street, eating cooked dogs and insects, pushing in to the front of lines and having extremely poor hygiene. This is the future of human civilization!
