China best at banging up bloggers
A map of bloggers in jail around the world shows that when it comes to arresting bloggers, China leads the pack, with 33 in the slammer.
Egypt is a close second, with 29, and there’s a solid cluster around the Middle East.
There are two in Cuba, and one in the USA.
The UK has none. So we can assume they haven’t got Jan Moir.
Yet.
