Im happy for people to have their opinion but when its a totally uninformed, ignorant one pushed forward incessantly to the point of obsession ; especially when i have offered plenty of informed refutation with nothing at the same level in return; receiving nothing more than arrogant, self righteous hubris.....THEN...i object. But, you are right Vlad. I guess to laugh in the face of something that ?..words fail me....is probably the way to go. Look at it like its an episode of Fawlty Towers makes it easy.

Re: Those Naughty Chinese

OK. I challenged Basil to come out from behind his desk, stop bullying Manuel and Polly ; sit down and have a serious discussion about China. He has repeated ad nauseum how Australia will "get a bloody nose" for standing up to China's economic bullying. How Xi and his gang are going to lay our economy to waste. How Australia is going to "pay" for not knowing it's place and how Xi and hordes are going to stomp all over us for being "disobedient" and failing to "tremble and obey" I simply asked him to supply authoritative support for his statements. Of course he has not. He never does..do you Basil!?..Anyway I promised to supply grist for the mill. It's not for Basil. He won't read it. He'll ignore it. It's for everyone else who is interested in having a serious look at how China's tactics are going. Not too well it seems. See below.

On the plus side he is happy in his fantasy and not hurting anyone and he makes a lot of forum members laugh.

Re: Those Naughty Chinese

Interesting to note how much chaos this latest outbreak of covid is causing in Australia. Maybe,just maybe the Australian government might start enter a learning phase instead of carrying on down the know it all path. I do hope there are not too many fatalities though.

I donít know if you missed it, but Cuba a communist country has gone tits up.
Venezuela a socialist country much lauded by the left is no longer a paradise
The USSR no longer exists.
How long before similar events kick off in China ? 1,445,084,959 Chinese kicking off about freedom will be a sight to see. Communism is past its best by date.

How lovely of you to take the trouble to write.

Here's a picture of Joan Collins as your reward

No arguments from me about communism being anything more than a phase that some countries have to pass through but in the case of China the place is so bloody huge that the phases are taking place in different parts of the country at different times and in non-traditional ways.

Re: Those Naughty Chinese

Surprise surprise. When Basil is confronted with something real. He ignores it, spews some baseless spite and changes the subject. Beyond pitiful..and gutless. But thats our Basil.
You lose Basil. Nice pic of JC Bruce.
