Now we see if a small child can be snared by the cannibal clowns that dwell below China’s streets. He can’t. He gets stuck. But his problems are not yet over because the man from ITN news has a voiceover to produce. China is not versed in the “where there’s blame there’s a claim” culture, and the lad is said to be “embarrassing” and suffering from “indignity”.
