From today's questions to the Prime Minister:

Mr Speaker, today, millions of Uyghur people in China live in fear under a cruel regime. The BBC, international media, and human rights NGOs are all reporting on force labor camps, women being raped and sterilized, and families being separated.

What, what should Britain do? Lead an expeditionary force to free the downtrodden Uyghurs from the Chinese yoke? Refuse to have any trade with China? Sever all diplomatic relationships? What's Britain to do in face of a genocide happening right in front of its eyes?
