Cameron said Britain would be China’s “best partner in the West” as they signed £40 billion (47 billion euros, $53 billion) of deals, including Beijing taking a £6 billion stake in Hinkley Point, Britain’s first new nuclear plant in a generation.

Money grabbing scum. Just turn you back on all the Japanese investments in favour of cheap Chinese copied garbage. Here's hoping the deal collapses. Stop funding China's military you idiots.

Pretty sure that GCHQ (UK's version of the NSA) would check all of China's code for back doors and problems, they already do it for other Chinese IT products. This is just an over-sophisticated kettle for generating steam for power, not a nuclear weapon producing plant, that is done elsewhere. And it is for only 7% of the UK power.

Maybe so but giving China huge amounts of money is a mistake nonetheless. On the one hand people moan about Chinas human rights, their shameless war mongering and yet when it comes to money they bend over. You get what you pay for and cheaper is rarely better especially from a county who's only skills are copying, lying and causing trouble. Britain is stupid to help bankroll the Chinese war chest, I hoped they had more sense.

^ yeah, then what about all the ¥100 stores in Japan selling chinese stuff, aren't they also propping up China?

There are many other options that the UK should consider. Including reliable and trustworthy options. Patience. No rush, no need to succumb to any silly blustering nonsense.
