China’s sanctions on UK not retaliatory; further countermeasures against ‘UK lawyers and Canadian MPs’ on the way

China’s countermeasure of sanctioning nine UK individuals and four entities was a reciprocal measure based on evidence and an equal relation with nations that the West must get used to, Chinese analysts and sources said, warning that more countermeasures are on the way against some lawyers in the UK who have colluded with overseas anti-China organizations, and Canadian parliament members who led the Xinjiang-related motions.

Go into any store that sells clothing, footwear, toys and games, electronics, hardware and tools, building supplies, gardening tools and equipment, large appliances, office equipment and supplies, greetings cards, Christmas decorations, party stuff, Halloween costumes, cameras, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, book, optical, eyewear, science equipment, household furniture, furnishings, lighting, and bedding, flooring, cookware, kitchenware, farm supplies and equipment, sports, camping and boating goods, paints and varnishes, solar panels, et cetera, and you will find that the Made in China label dominates. If the price of Chinese consumer products increases, perhaps people will buy less and so generate less waste (including fewer… Read more »

Good ideas. Those emissions? They’re CO2, plant food, essential to life on Earth & not a big factor in climate.

I didn’t mention climate change, not did I cite CO2. Emissions from burning fossil fuels are a big factor in health. Think respiratory illnesses. According to estimates published by the World Health Organization, one out of eight total global deaths are caused by air pollution, confirming that it is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk. 7 million people died as a result of air pollution exposure in 2012 (WHO, 2014), and industrial, transportation and residential emissions have increased over the past eight years. With respect to plants, everyone knows that trees take in CO2 and release oxygen, at… Read more »

By the way, as a follow up from the previous remarks I made about the geographer Tim Ball: In September 2006, Ball filed a lawsuit against The Calgary Herald, a division of CanWest MediaWorks, specifically naming four of its staff, as well as Dr. Dan Johnson, a professor of environmental science at the Department of Geography at the University of Lethbridge and the Board of Governors of the University of Lethbridge. Ball’s suit is over the publication of a letter to the editor published in April 2006 by Johnson responding to an opinion column by Ball. In his statement of claim,… Read more »

Pfft…..sanctions. They should sue for reparations for the Opium Wars. The Opium Wars, two wars waged between Western powers and Qing-dynasty China, took place in the mid-19th century. The First Opium War, fought in 1839–1842 between Great Britain and the Qing Dynasty, was triggered by the Qing’s crackdown on British opium-smugglers. The Second Opium War pitted Britain and France (in coalition) against the Qing in 1856–1860. In each war, the European forces’ modern military technology led to an easy victory over the Qing forces, with the consequence that the Chinese government was compelled to grant favorable tariffs, trade concessions, and… Read more »

Don’t forget the tea! Britons’ addiction to tea resulted in Britain making payments for tea in the form of opium imported to China from its colony of India. I don’t know how accurate the story here is, but it’s an interesting one:

Americans were involved the opium trade and wars too. Fortunes were made by the Delanos (FDR’s family) and the Forbes’ (John Kerry’s family).

Not surprised at all. Al Gore’s wealth came from Stalin, Prescott Bush’s from Hitler and Joe Kennedy’s from the Mafia. So, why be surprised over this one?

I couldn’t agree with you more, Alexander. I have been hoping for individual countries or allied groups of countries to start imposing sanctions on the US/UK/EU/Israel for years. The shift in geopolitical power has now made this possible and the arrogant west is now reeling with shock. How dare they do unto us what we have done to them!! The Golden Rule, basically, “do as you would be done by”, is common to all major religions, and also to dozens of lesser religions and faiths. I found it in 27 before I stopped counting. This Golden Rule, also known as… Read more »

I am shocked at the blatant relativism displayed by this blogger. I get the impression he writes to curry favour with the CCP who must certainly be following him with interest after his visit to China in 2017. He ignores reports from credible sources regarding what has been described as a genocide against the Uigurs, their forced abortions or at the very least their million strong internment in eighty-odd concentration camps for ‘reeducation.’ Then there is the organ harvesting from living members of Falun Dong and the ongoing persecution of Christians together with the policy of demographic change wrought by… Read more »

“credible sources” – LOL

btw, any news on the arrest of Bush and Blair for war crimes stemming from their similar invention of “credible evidence”?

‘I am shocked at the blatant relativism displayed by this blogger.’

Some people would label it relativism, others call it context and striving for a balanced perspective on things. Something China-haters have little interest in it seems. Your comment reads like something straight out of the CIA playbook.

How dare they sanction that lovely smiling smirking Ian Duncan Smith!!!!!!! He is after all the ”sanction Meister” of Britain’s welfare state. Please don’t let the suicides of those that have no access to Human Rights Lawyers colour your view of him.
