China Pushes For Greater Investment In Uk, Including Hs2 And Nuclear Power

Recommended Posts

China wants involvement in Britain's first high-speed rail line and an increased role in civil nuclear power, the country's premier said in Beijing after talks with David Cameron on the first day of the prime minister's visit.

Li Keqiang said China would also like to invest in power projects.

Speaking in the Great Hall of the People on Monday, Li said: "The two sides have agreed to push for breakthroughs and progress in the co-operation between our enterprises on nuclear power and high speed rail. The Chinese side is willing to not only participate in but also purchase equities and stocks in UK power projects."

Cameron said the scale and pace of China's transformation dwarfed Britain's industrial revolution.

The remarks by Li follow a concerted effort by Britain to mend fences with Beijing after Cameron met the Dalai Lama last year. The prime minister said last week he would welcome Chinese involvement in HS2.

So Cameron's plan is to make the UK a satellite state for the Chinese rich?

Only a complete and utter fool would let the Chinese get involved!

You have to laugh really. One day, we have Cameron moralizing over us about the evil authortitarian dictatorships of Syria and Libya. The next day, he's encouraging another authoritarian dictatorship to take possession of key national infrastruture. You only need to look at the appalling human rights, road safety, and pollution records in China to see that the government there has scant regard for its own citizens - let alone ours!
