David Cameron is in China

'Buy our stuff'

David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, is in China, saying what Western 'leaders' say on such trips.

He is saying 'But our stuff' – a sentence that you may of course interpret in more than one way, especially with respect to the words 'buy' and 'stuff').

And Conductive Education?

Mr Cameron's mega-trade delegation is unlikely to mention Conductive Education.

Nil desperandum. Next month Conductive Education itself will be sending a far bigger party to China, to the Hong Kong SAR – Special Administrative Region.

Conductive Education has no 'leaders' as such (for that there would have to be followers) but there will be individuals and agencies jostling to deliver the same message at the World Conductive Education Congress: 'Buy our stuff' – again variously interpretable.

I love wandering round markets, of any kind, looking to see what is on offer, comparing quality and prices, and doing a little haggling to see what can be obtained for how little, especially as the day draws to its close.

Hong Kong looks to provide great fun of this kind.

Caveat emptor!
