Putin and Xi may not be herding people into gas chambers, but they're guilty of the same crimes as Hitler and Stalin
I wonder to what extent it’s possible to extricate ourselves from contracts with Chinese companies, we are extremely dependent on them for infrastructure, as an example UKPower networks, one of the major electricity distribution networks is owned by the Chinese. Even if our politicians use strong words against them. We are beholden to them.
We need to think very carefully about future commercial agreements with the PRC. I think we can presume there will be little or no engagement with Russia while the criminal Putin remains in control. In respect of the PRC we need to avoid all high tech/IT partnerships and remove them entirely from any govt agency. We should maintain formal, correct diplomatic relations with the PRC but let’s not pretend it’s our friend or can even be really trusted.
