John Major and Tony Blair both had meetings with the Dalai Lama in No. 10 Downing Street, Gordon Brown has chosen to meet the Dalai Lama elsewhere. What are the motives of Gordon Brown in doing so?

Simple. He does not want to annoy the Chinese.

His arugment for meeting the Dalai Lama in Lambeth palace is to point out that it is a spiritual meeting, not a political one. I am not sure if that is right or not. Personally, I would go for the all or nothing approach and meet him at Downing Street.

While I understand that the Chinese think that Tibet is part of China, and I am aware that the people of Tibet were worse of when independent than they are now, I also feel that they have the right of self determination, and should be allowed to be independent if that is what they wish.
