ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Uh-oh!: bemused Chinese react to John McDonnell's Chairman Mao speech (Tom Phillips, 26 November 2015, The Guardian)

Mao Zedong's homeland reacted with a mixture of scorn, jubilation and amusement after the shadow chancellor gave the Great Helmsman's teachings their parliamentary debut.

Chinese news outlets were quick to pick up on reports of John McDonnell's controversial speech to parliament on Wednesday after which he tossed a copy of Mao's crimson tome across the dispatch box towards George Osborne. [...]


Others were less amused that the Chinese despot had been resuscitated at the very heart of British democracy.

"Uh-oh! Mao's leftwing ideologies are rising up again!" wrote one.
