I, for one, welcome our new Chinese overlords

And for good reason. China has proven to be much more interested in Australian’s welfare than our own leaders have.

It is China that has stopped the flow of capital into Australian property, not local leaders.

It is China that wants an extradition treaty so it can retrieve corrupt officials and money from Australian markets, not local leaders which refuse to install  anti-money laundering laws.

It is China that acted to support the Paris Climate Change Agreement and exceeded all emissions targets, not local leaders.

It is China that has acted with sensible restraint and diplomacy around North Korea while local leaders have acted like puffed-up tin pot generals.

It is China that has killed the Adani coal monster while local leaders have bent and broken every rule to fund it.

It is China that has called for the improvement of Australian pedagogical standards as they crash to allow entry to Asia’s dumbest, not our local leaders.

Hopefully China will also soon cut off the flows of its people into Australia to stop the crush-loading of cities, the repression of wages and the marginalisation of our youth from home ownership.

Comments

  1. Solar panel factories in China killed the Adani mine.

    With regards to your last sentence, China should demand that basket case India no longer be the biggest source of immigration into Australia. What is the point of buying Aussie politicians and seeing AUS have mass immigration from much poorer India rather than China?

    The Indians here are not going to praise the PLA.

    • More than possible that China, with a declining working age population shuts off the outflow of working age Chinese born people, and diverts part of the Indian working age outflow to their shores too.

  2. Hooray it was the Chinese who claimed the South China Sea and told everyone else to butt out, or was that Sino Sam? I dunno, but whilst China has been doing good, they have also done a lot of negative things too!

    Our political class though, well I feel like they are beyond fixing at this point..

      The way China treats the South China Sea is similar to how the US treats the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbeans. When a country’s economy depends on the region, it will do whatever it can to control it, international law be damned. Why else do you think Puerto Rico is part of the USA?

      • Ronin8317,
        Do not bring other facts to the table, we are discussing only China’s actions. Do not confuse the punters by presenting logical information 🙂

      • and don’t forget “United States, the only democratic power in the world that can prevent Chinese autocracy from installing undemocratic puppet states wherever it likes.” as asserted by HnH 3 days ago…

      • So the US borders the Gulf of Mexico while China is building military bases on disputed islands 1200km from Hainan. Are these also facts that ought to be brought to the table?

    “It is China that has acted with sensible restraint and diplomacy around North Korea while local leaders have acted like puffed-up tin pot generals.”

    North Korea is a Proxy state of China!, NKs puppet regime is completely beholden to her,…No way are those Nuk and Missile tests going on without Beijings approval,…& I suspect their direction.

    Those “North Korean” missile tests over Japan and the Pacific are perfect for testing Western ICBM tracking and counter measure capabilities.
    Not to mention Western “Resolve”.

    It takes 2,…to Cold War.

    • Ermo, although NK is a client state of China, It’s not quite the case of China telling NK what to do.

      NK is acting as a rational player and doing what it needs to do to not suffer the safe fate as Lybia that as result of getting ‘freedom and democracy’ western style, went from the most developed country in Africa to a terrorist hotbed and having slave auctions. Furthermore, by developing a nuclear deterrent it can even gain relative independence from China.

      Australia, on the other hand, needs to kowtow to China for money while at the same time beg the U.S. For protection. Talk about a whore with no self respect.

      • ErmingtonPlumbingMEMBER

        So your advocating Nuclear weapons for Australia Joel?,…so we may regain some,…virtue?

        Without Chinese interference, a collapsed North Korea regime would just simply lead to a reunifed Korea,…like the Chinese, they have a common Culture, 1000s of years old.

        Remember the 2 Germanys?
        They are a better analogy than,…Lybia!

        The Problem is, China simply won’t tolerate a United Korea, that isn’t a client state,….North Korean “independence”,…Pffft!
        China could completly take her out and have a Million troops across her boarder in a Day!,…and who would challenge China for doing so,… if it were to remove the “out if control” NK leadership,…the western press would probably celebrate the move,…another proxy would be put in place.

        Given the choice though,…the Vast majority of Koreans, on both “sides” would choose Reunification, within a democratic state, for themselves.

      • No, I’m advocating virtue, so that Australia might gain self respect.

        Funny you should mention Germany. If you happen to know anyone from East Germany who was there at the time of the reunification, ask them how they feel about their life change following the reunification. You might be surprised.

      • ErmingtonPlumbingMEMBER

        “If you happen to know anyone from East Germany who was there at the time of the reunification, ask them how they feel about their life change following the reunification.”

        Well,… ask anyone, from any of the former Eastern block countries or the USSR the same question about their life after
        the collapse of their Political systems also,..such moments caused upheaval for the vast majority everywhere,…though a small percentage always seem to make of like bandits.
        But,..You dont see the German working class scrambling to emigrate out of germany into the former Eastern block though,… do you now?

        The Bavarians want out of Germany more than the former “East Germans”!.

        Vladimir Putin is known to push this “seizure of East Germany” line after Germany questioned Russian Annexation in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.

        You’re not channeling Sergey Naryshkin, (Vladimir’s new spy chief) are you Joel?

        Pfft!! Virtue-schmirtue! Virtue doesn’t get you laid! And self respect certainly doesn’t get you blown.

        Just ask Reusa!

    One of my Sri Lankan costomers, a regular, was discussing the cost of housing in our area with me and we both agreed that the Chinese bid was making home ownership in Sydney an impossible dream for our Children.
    I said to this always polite man who I had never seen swear or say a racist word,
    “”They’ve” priced our Kids out of the market”
    His matter of fact, reply was,
    “At least they’ve priced the Arabs out of the area also”!
    Followed by me slowly saying “Yes” and some nervous laughter,…I think he might have been blushing,… but I couldn’t tell.
    🙄

    • Lots of wealthy Lebanese in Sydney who own Real Estate, so not sure what “Arabs” he’s worried about. Of course there is Christian Lebanese and Musl1m Lebanese as with many other regions in the middle east, unfortunately 1slam doesn’t leave much space for other religions to flourish (so it’s usually the majority religion).

      I personally think allowing any foreign national to hoover up Real Estate in any city is bad (be it Russian’s in London) or Chinese in Sydney, it will lead to a break down in society and probably more instability and rioting from disenfranchised youth. Lord knows I’ll be out there torching shyza if this continues for much longer.

      The reason I think Australia has been a more successful multicultural society up to this point was the fact that it didn’t matter where you came from or what you did for work, you could afford a home and to raise a family. It was a much more equal egalitarian society.

      With rabid population growth and the spoils of that going to already wealthy capital owners (land owners) that balance is being skewed and it’s going to have profound impacts on our society if we continue down this path and on this trajectory.

      My biggest issue with the Chinese is that we’re just importing 1 Culture that seems to be taking over our own. If you’re going to run a massive a massive ponzi, at least bring in folks from all over the globe, not 1 or 2 countries only.

      • How come 40% of Lebanon is Christian?

        I agree that the most IT jobs in Australia are now done by people from the subcontinent and that is not diversity at all – it is monoculture! Also, Shorten offers cognitive dissonance. He says “Aussie kids should learn coding”. But PM Shorten will keep giving out work visas for $0 each – thus guaranteeing that the good jobs will go to foreigners while Aussies end up in part time retail work.

      • @Jacob. Spot on. I hear the same from my IT contact. but work visas aren’t $0 at least for the recipient. If people weren’t getting a cut they wouldn’t exist. Perhaps the govt are taking too small a cut.

      • How come 40% of Lebanon is Christian?

        Good question, I don’t know? Jordan next door is 93% Islam. So I was talking in general terms.

      • Initially colonised by the French. Only other city outside of Paris to have a Notre Dame du statue. In addition it was the Monaco of the Middle East up until the civil war.

      • Crocodile Chuck

        You’re confusing ethnicity [‘Arab’] with religion [‘Islam’, ‘Christian’].

        All Lebanese are of Arab descent, whether they are Maronite Christians, Muslims, Druze or whatever.

      • “How come 40% of Lebanon is Christian?”

        Better question is why more of the middle east isn’t Christian. Egypt was once majority Christian, now perhaps 10%, and Saudi Arabia was Jewish.

      • Syria is mixed Alawite, Druze, Shiite, Sunni, Christian, Iran has the largest Jewish population in the world and you should bother to listen to the Christians in Palestine who correctly identify Israel (the Jews) as their biggest persecutors. The middle east was far more diverse and tolerant religiously before we began meddling by backing Israel and allowing Wahhabi Saudi Arabia to spread their toxic brand of Islam, but I know you’re not interested in allowing pesky facts to get in the way of your chip on the shoulder about Islam

      • “”and rioting from disenfranchised youth.””

        Hahahahahhaha ….. what … in Australia?

        They are far too preoccupied with Faceborg, YouTube cat videos, loading their photos onto Instadumb, planning for their next music festival, Netflix, playing video games and scoring/taking their drug of choice.

    • And Lab/Libs are the biggest cheerleaders of this sellout. How many times have YOU brought this up at your Labor meetings.
      How about a plebiscite on immigration. It effects more people than g4y marriage.
      Let’s start calling a spade a spade , or will that offend the poor spade? Anyway, got to get ready for golf. Have a good day.

  5. I don’t. Some of the changes currently taking place over there involving the state and technology should cause everyone to reflect on the situation carefully, and if you conclude there are no implications outside of the PRC’s borders you are delusional. Very glad to be back in our much changed and unfortunately flawed nation.

      I love how they are introducing a social score. The more likes you get the more status you have in their society. We need that here. I’d get lots of likes and, hence, lots of relations. Youse losers on the other hand, no wonder you wouldn’t like their great systems!

      • Good luck! I’ve found the transition back surprisingly smooth. I’d like to think that is because I planned and prepared for it so well but I was also ready for the change. Left before getting bitter/disillusioned and I wasn’t pushed out, not many long termers can say that so I’m a happy camper 😊

    we are verging on a total sell-out of our strategic alliance with the United States, the only democratic power in the world that can prevent Chinese autocracy from installing undemocratic puppet states wherever it likes.

    Now this.

    I don’t get it… are Chinese bogeymen or not?

  7. Lol I can only assume this is satire or hedging a possible future.

    I won’t hedge. Stuff kangaroo courts with summary death sentences. Stuff running over people 3times to make sure they’re dead. Stuff uniparty states.

  8. A few weekends ago I was speaking to someone who had started taking mandarin lessons, and they made an interesting remark that each university in Australia has Confucius Institute to promote Chinese culture and language, and these are apparently fully funded by the Chinese Government.

    Hence it was interesting to read today, that there is a Confucius Institute embedded in the NSW state department.
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/dec/08/confucious-institute-in-nsw-education-department-unacceptable-analyst

    “A former senior intelligence analyst for the Australian government is calling for an urgent review of an arrangement whereby a Chinese government-affiliated entity is embedded inside a state government department.”

    Our Chinese neighbours to the left are polite, friendly and quiet. Our Aussie neighbours to the right are loud mouthed, obese and covered in Tatts. ( and that’s just the women)

      • michael francis

        I did a deal with our Chinese neighbours replacing the fence and came out second best. (Behind the smiles I was well and truly stitched up-silly me.)

  10. Dear MB,
    You go from one extreme to another. Other day, you were extremely worried about Chinese influence, today you are very supportive of Chinese influence infact stating that they are better than our own politicians at taking care of Australians.

    Looking like you lot are turning into Uncle Gotti, Pascometer, etc quickly.

    • “You go from one extreme to another. Other day, you were extremely worried about Chinese influence, today you are very supportive of Chinese influence infact stating that they are better than our own politicians at taking care of Australians.”

      It has a name… here

      i serves a purpose of making things bigger than what they are… call it an IT viagra

  11. “It is China that acted to support the Paris Climate Change Agreement and exceeded all emissions targets, not local leaders.”
    lolololol… SEEK TRUTH FROM FACTS….

  12. “It is China that wants an extradition treaty”
    not so fast buster. We are dealing with a police state here with no rue of law. Sure there are corrupt Chinese officials – but some of them may just be the political enemies of the ruling corrupt Chinese officials – and the net can be much wider than them alone.
