    Default The hubris of the Chinese Communist Party

    Sky News QUOTE - "The editorial in China's Global Times on Tuesday gives a clear hint about how David Cameron has been received in the country so far.

    To a significant extent, editorials in the Chinese (state run) papers reflect the broad thinking of the communist leadership.

    Under the headline "China won't fall for Cameron's 'sincerity'", the Global Times article is less than complimentary.

    It reminds Mr Cameron that "the UK is not a big power in the eyes of the Chinese. It is just an old European country …......only Good For Travel And Study”."


    Whilst it may be true this staggering arrogance of the Chinese Communist Party will be their undoing. It will not be long before their disposable “worker ants” begin an uprising that they will not be able to stop. The trouble is that it will have huge global repercussions.

    Quite possibly but a weak throbber like Cameron won't be a catalyst to support that change.

    He'll play to the gallery about human rights but ultimately he just wants their money and he will shut up at the appropriate point to get it. He knows where the line is and he'll stay well behind it. A country where the majority of the population work for peanuts while a very few become super rich is not something he is going to want to change at all.

    Cameron has just gone over their to bend over for the Chinese because he had the temerity to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and has regretted it ever since (as his city-big business mates have been no doubt reminding him over the odd Oxfordshire Country Supper).

    Cameron is nothing more than a PR shill for big business.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Shurely shome mistake. Adding intellectual giant and entrepreneurial genius Karen Brady to his travelling entourage is evidence enough of his supreme competence

    I thought most of his mates were in Court anyway. It must be boring only having Clarkson left to talk to.

    It is only a matter of time before the Chinese Govt test the metal of the West with a military action somewhere. They will never be satisfied with just economic success, totalitarian regimes never are.

    Our only hope of avoiding a repeat of the Nazi expansionism on the 1930's is that internal unrest hits them first.

    It is interesting that the the Dalai Lama is their Bete Noire?; it confirms what many have suspected that they know Religion generally, and outsaide Tibet in particular the social activism of Christianity will be the undoing of the soulless Communist Party.

    Senkaku/Diaoyu islands a possibility? Wouldn't have NATO involvement and would test US commitment to Japan and its other allies or would they be more likely to go for someting with no immediate US involvement?

    The only way small business can prosper is by having an unregulated free market with as many places in the world, no doubt that big business will have a say but they also want high regulations to stop competitors from entering, thats why big business loves the EU, its a right wing Corporatism organization where over regulations make them loads of money. If we want the smaller people to get more say lets get out of the EU and sign free trade agreements with as many areas as possible including China, the EU, North America and the commonwealth with little business regulation except of course no bail outs and the small people will get better jobs. The political class, global business, the EU and investment banks run our economic policy and they all need ditching, the point is free trade is good, but regulation creates monopolies or oligopolies eg Energy companies.

    ...that's all very well and good Emmerson (can I call you that?), but what can the Chinese do for the average man on the street, apart from sweet and sour pork balls? I mean why would Britain want to ease trade relations with the second biggest economy in the World? How might we benefit? What's the long term cost to our economy if we don't? I smell a rat. Speaking as an idealist, surely there are better options open to Britain at the moment, even if it means ripping it all up and starting again with a blank sheet. Bit of blue sky thinking that's what we need.

    Yeah Emmerson is fine The point is that in the west welfare and debt are the biggest trap to the poor. In the economies of the west all the power is with the banks and governments, the point with the UK is both Governments and investment banks (different from high street banking sector the honest side of banking) are spending our money away from next generations because our welfare is not based on profit its based on borrowing so the poor dont riot because they get cash but there next generations are going to be even poorer, debt will make the working class suffer more than anything!!

    To tie this in with China and the EU the point is the west and especially the UK have binged out on debt creating underclasses stuck on welfare. The borrowing is way too much and we are not making any money because proper good working class jobs are not there any more. So the UK either needs to change the flow of power or default as far I am concerned and a Chinese free trade deal would give an opportunity for the UK to make money and get foreign investment, the UK is scuppered by the EU in this because we cant make our own trade deals and the EU business regulations kills off small business's in growing to compete in the oligopoly markets (like energy) that's why the EU is not socialist on the contrary its an organization that big business love because they pay little tax, are protected by the EU barriers in place and are able to pay little wages so its not socialist or capitalist its corporatism and on top of that undemocratic with the highest paid politician in the world being unelected.

    So China would benefit the average man a lot but its not just that we need! We need to be out of the EU and start looking at other markets in the world like India, Brazil, Russia, the Commonwealth we will always have a free trade deal with the EU because they sell us much more than we sell them, the economy does need ripping up I totally agree. Just to add I think welfare is great in economies with surpluses but obviously not over inflated welfare budgets and that is where the UK is at as we don't have surpluses with a massive welfare debt. I hope you understand what I put in a non patronising way I learnt this studying economics and politics I think people need to know the UK are in the hands of the banks created by our governments and welfare the latter is a tool in this country to shut people up by compensating the working class!! The poorest people shouldn't be upset about benefits being taken away they should rioting that the money they receive in welfare is from bastard banks and not from taxes of good working class jobs.
