Thank God We are Out of the EU ...
As remainers protest over the UK leaving the EU, one of the main concerns they have constantly prophesied over is the erosion of workers rights once we are outside of schemes and associations governed by the commission as part of our EU membership.
... take a deep breath.
So, ironically for the blinkered remainer, the EU have now signed up to an investment trade deal with China

Apart from the CCP lying through its back teeth, over and over again regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, colluding with the WHO to cover up the sheer scale of the impact to the rest of the world, failing to shut down its borders to stop the spread and incarcerating, torturing and murdering whistle-blowers, China has a list of atrocities as long as your arm that, no doubt, the average hardline remainer can brush off as trivialities because what is more important is, we are too dependant on China anyway, so, "what the hell" let's go all in because its where we get all our cheap stuff from.
It's quite a disgusting way to look at trading relationships when historically trade has been used as a very effective weapon to resolve issues such as human rights, as much as it can be an incentive to conquer other things such as poverty and deprivation to make the world a better place. We have seen this in other countries we trade with recently, in particular, Africa and also with our sanctions on Iran and Libya etc.
But the EU deal is different. This isn't so much a trade deal with "China" this is a trade deal with the Chinese Communist Party, a signed up document between a communist regime with a 100 year agenda for world domination and 27 countries of the EU that year on year have gradually sold out and eroded their sovereignty all in the name of the same ideology as their Chinese bedfellows. Could this be the opportunity to accelerate the EU end state using China as the catalyst ? After all, look what has happened in Hong Kong and what is happening in Taiwan.... and besides, the belt and road initiative has seen the member states go trillions in debt to China through cheap loans to fund the new Silk Road which will bring them their cheap stuff from the communist block.
Here, we have on one hand, the remainers wanting the UK to go back into the EU because of workers rights, when the reality in China is that over 500,000 Uighur children have gone "missing", human organs are harvested, millions of Uighurs are incarcerated in concentration camps being re-educated with forced labour, there is zero tolerance for disobedience of the authoritarian state and zero rights for workers or their families. Genocide of the Uighurs make the Nazis look like saints, the CCP stealing their land for themselves to allow them to grow materials for cheap clothes, subsidised by the communist government to undercut any other western manufacturer and wholesaled around the world in big polluting container ships.
China is the biggest (or certainly in the top 3) polluter in the world, it's the country that hacks, steals and copies technology that other companies have invented, protected and designed, only to manufacture it under forced labour and infringed copyright which the west turns a blind eye to, and pays its workers a pittance so it can sell it back to us cheaper than anyone else.
We need to do something about China and now their bag-man, Biden is in the Whitehouse it means more of the same. This is now beyond politics and it is the consumer that needs to push back and one way would be by not buying anything from China. We should give the EU the same treatment as well.
Thank God we are out of the EU !
