Why did Xi Jinping spend the weekend crawling to Washington? Panic and lies!
But nobody out-grovels the groveller:
Anthony Albanese faces a new political fight over his management of the China relationship and demands to explain whether he expressed disapproval directly to Xi Jinping at APEC after a Chinese warship injured Australian navy divers in international waters.
…The government waited until after the conclusion of APEC to reveal that divers with the Royal Australian Navy suffered minor injuries after being subjected to sonar pulses from a Chinese warship. The incident occurred in Japan’s exclusive economic zone on November 14 – a full day before the Prime Minister left to attend APEC.
The only thing Albo raised was the white flag.
Sad, given Xi’s capitulation to Washington is the direct result of the strict approach initiated under Trump and Morrison.
