外文标题：The palace of shame that makes China angry
There is a deep, unhealed historical wound in the UK's relations with China - a wound that most British people know nothing about, but which causes China great pain. It stems from the destruction in 1860 of the country's most beautiful palace.
The palace's fate is bitterly resented in Chinese minds and constantly resurfaces in Chinese popular films, angry social media debates, and furious rows about international art sales.
And it has left a controversial legacy in British art collections - royal, military, private - full of looted objects.
Why China can not use it's economic muscle to get back these looted items?
to get back these items is not hard thing but it needs time.

Good that these stuff are kept elsewhere other than China. * red guards will likely smash them into pieces. China should send a thank you note to UK for preserving these heritage.
You should send all your money to me as i will preserve your heritage before one day you might have alzheimer and flush all your cash down the toilet. You may now thank me for protecting your wealth.
Didn't you know that the Brits have supernatural power such as clairvoyance? When they destroyed the palace, all they had in mind was that they will save valuable Chinese artefacts that 100 years later would have been destroyed by evil commies. So considered of them, those benevolent opium dealers.
So, in your silly reasoning, China was destined to become communist so that you have a playing field to bash China? Also, the destruction of the palace by the Brits was ok, because they have saved some artifacts till today?
