    Many people were hopeful for China. It was normalising gradually and becoming a better country. During this lost years under Xi it is just Fear, Debt and Nationalism. All quite sad.

    The time is now, take the advantage. I'm an avid proponent of free trade, but the CCP takes the piss ignoring their side of every international treaty for trade and human rights. With the US forefront, and now the UK and Australia slowly speaking out, now is the time for the international community to return the CCP to the 1970s where Xi seems to want to be and let the Chinese people sort it out. Western economies should warn their companies it's time to get out, and the CCP that if they think the Chinese economy can support itself from internal GDP and internal travel only, good luck.

    A new alliance is envisaged by the UK: the D10 group. This would be made up of the G7 democracies plus Australia, South Korea and India.

    In the latest in a series of online controversies, the Chinese embassy in France claimed its official Twitter account had been hacked after it featured a cartoon depicting the US as Death, knocking on a door marked Hong Kong after leaving a trail of blood outside doors marked Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela. The inclusion in the image of a Star of David on the scythe also prompted accusations of anti-Semitism

    “Someone posted a false image on our official Twitter account by posting a cartoon entitled ‘Who is Next?’. The embassy would like to condemn it and always abides by the principles of truthfulness, objectivity and rationality of information,” it said on Monday.
    LOL, "hacked"

    Apparently some local authorities are encouraging people to set up previously illegal street stalls.
