Caps and flags used by “spontaneous” demonstrators spurring on the state visit of the Chinese President today appear to have been flown into the United Kingdom, from China, in diplomatic bags.
The BBC uncovered the boxes, still naively carrying the “Diplomatic bag” tag, lining the routes of the welcoming parade which saw thousands of Chinese students descending on central London to welcome their country’s president during his visit to Britain today.
Oliver Lane, Breitbart London‘s foremost hat enthusiast, reviewed the Chinese caps (above), comparing them to the American-made Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” caps that have become a meme in and of themselves.
His conclusion? In the great geopolitical hat war… the American product comes up trumps.
