Posted in: Australia blames EU supply issues for slow vaccine rollout See in context

But since then, a wider debate across Europe on whether to export vaccines when EU countries are struggling to contain the virus has further held up supplies.

Europe would be foolish to export to Australia, in the current situation, and I'm sure most Australians understand.

Posted in: Canada surpasses 1 mil COVID-19 cases See in context

China with a population about 50 times the size, still hasn't even reached 100,000 cases.

Actual ccp numbers are an amaaazing 90k cases, including the poor pangolin or bat that was half cooked.

The 80+ companies that indirectly include the forced labour of Uyghurs in their supply chains should be boycotted too.

Many of these are well known brands.

Posted in: New Zealand in coronavirus lockdown as UK variant cases reported See in context

The lockdown looks to be a massive overreaction, but the current infections represent a massive failure of the Ardern government not getting border workers vaccinated.

If this is a massive overreaction, what should be done?

Posted in: Britain officially launches new visa scheme for Hong Kong citizens See in context

The U.K. has a moral obligation to these people after China broke the treaty.

Not when many many HK people said it was time to throw off the colonial yoke and get rich off the Chinese boom. Fact is HK is a black market money funnel to the West for those HK and mainlanders who want to flee.

That's why the CCP has shut it down earlier than expected.

Brexit was a (bare majority) and now let's import more ingrates.

What's happening the Japan-China hotline? It's been agreed upon, a couple years ago.

Maybe someone's got the wrong land line phone number.

I've had a few calls lately, where no one replies.

Posted in: Japan prepares for digital currency, in line with China and others See in context

A friend's father who was a very successful merchant banker has bank accounts in many tax jurisdictions but mostly for the purpose of tax avoidance. Last year, he had a stroke and cannot remember much about anything, let alone where all his millions are hidden.

His familiy's lawyers have been battling both banks an governments in obtaining his bank details. They've only had meager success.

Both government and the finance sector want to take control of your finances, and digitalisation is a huge step to this end.

“To white Americans, these new immigrants were different in a threatening way, and there is fear of the ‘other,’ of difference,” said Wu, who is Asian American.

The great monolith of white is always so easy to stereotype in these "discussions" on racism.

Posted in: Australia, Japan to bolster defense ties amid China's rise See in context

How can we demolish the Chinese base built upon the reclaimed islands and return to original state? We are all powerless against China and U.S. is indifferent.

Those stolen islands are sitting ducks. There'll be missiles pointed at them right now.

I think they've been allowed to do this, so they don't invest so much in carrier fleets.
