Lib Dem Ed Davey wants UK to boycott China Olympics

Sir Ed Davey has called for Team GB to boycott next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing over the treatment of Uighur Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region.

The Lib Dem leader said it was a “genocide happening in front of our eyes”.

Boris Johnson said it was a “longstanding position” of the UK government to “not normally” be in favour of sporting boycotts.
