'The only gripe I have with Louise Mensch is that she still supports criminalisation of the drugs trade. As such she is saying that young people such as her former self should have their lives ruined by a criminal conviction, and possible custodial sentence. Would her life have panned out in the same way with such a tarnish on her record? If not then how can she condone this happening to other people?

ART NEWS: Ai Weiwei Speaks via Google+

艾未未
涉嫌色情、偷税、煽颠、切汇、包奶、抄袭、倒卖文物七宗罪。

Since Google+ was not part of his deal with the Chinese government to STFU, Ai Weiwei has broken his imposed silence. Judging from the volume of yesterday's g+ comments, his wry humor has brought a degree of delight to Weiwei's circlers and to many who oppose political oppression.

Follow Ai Weiwei's Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/106372800511710859472/posts#106372800511710859472/posts
