Chinese ambassador to UK barred from British parliament

Hopefully we are now waking up to to the threat posed by China.

The UK has been asleep on this issue for sometime with former PMs activity courting Beijing.

Whilst Russia can provide annoyance, I don't think they are a long term strategic threat. We ought to work on brining them in from the cold as well as sort out better links with Africa. If course we also need to repair the damage with Europe.

It's far too late to talk about strategic threats. There are seven and a half billion people in the world, all of whom want a standard of living roughly comparable with that of Western Europe. Whether they can ever get to that stage of development is a moot point. What isn't moot is that Western Europe, the US and Japan don't have the capacity to satisfy that demand or even a fraction of it. Ultimately, that's why Chinese industrial socialism has triumphed and Western financialised capitalism is doomed to fail outright.

Demographics count though too and China's are not great!

A contemptible act of political persecution by Uncle Sham and his dwarf Canadian stooge to subject this woman to three years of house arrest without cause or legal justitification.

Free Julian Assange!

I do find that Biden backdown to Trumps Alpha male behaviour interesting
