BRITISH Olympic athletes will be forced to sign contracts banning them from criticising China's human rights record before travelling to the Games.


Each athlete will have to sign a 32-page contract, which includes clauses describing how they will not be allowed to comment on "any political sensitive issues", The Mail on Sunday reported.


The British Olympic Association (BOA) confirmed that any athlete who refused to sign the contract would not be allowed to compete at the Games, which begin in August.


The move is in stark contrast to other countries, including the United States, Canada, and Australia where Olympic Committee president John Coates has said athletes are "entitled to have their opinions" and will be "free to speak".

That's fucking retarded by the British. Props to John Coates for not putting shit like that in front of our athletes.

The British are enforcing that?

Fucking idiots.

Then again, maybe it's so China doesn't detain them in a dank prison nobody knows about for 10 years, until finally using them as involuntary internal organ donors.

Hopefully it leads to something similar for musicians with political views.
And Big Brother housemates.
