Posted in: Hong Kong replaced by Singapore as Asia's top finance center See in context

The city still mandates three days of hotel quarantine for all international arrivals while its border with the Chinese mainland is mostly closed.

Not from next Monday.

But most importantly it is an authoritarian one party police state that bends over backwards for business but doesn't tolerate democratic opposition or any of the other messy situations that big business doesn't like.

I really can't tell whether you were referring to HK or Singapore.

Singapore was nice for a few days vacation. Just remember not to bring chewing gum. And just be careful, they have the death penalty for some crimes.

The next war won't be in Taiwan. It'll be right in the middle of USA. Do I care?

Every time Blinken and Biden opened their mouths, nothing but lies and hypocrisy came out. It also seems that Biden doesn't even know where he's going half the times.

Posted in: Hundreds demand cancellation of Abe's state funeral See in context

PTownsend:

But fortunately the police seemed to have left the protestors alone and did not drag them off to jail like is done in most autocratic regimes.

True. During the start of the Truss regime in the UK, people were dragged away and arrested simply for holding placards, some of them being completely blank, during the mourning of the dear leader. Police were following anyone who dared say they were not a fan of Charles.

Gambare Nippon:

It still is not proven that Abe was a member of the Moonies.

Nobody said he was. You don't have to be a member to accept their donation or speak at their meetings.

I do agree that the funeral should be much smaller and cheaper. Zero need for foreign Heads of State or dignitaries, as Abe certainly was not a Head of State.

He's already had his funeral. Where have you been? Why don't you pay for this photo-op, if you're so enthusiastic about your Dear Leader.

Gambare Nippon:

One has to remember who the vey close friend of the Micronesians are.

Communist China.

I tell you what. Why don't you drink that water if you think it's safe?

It's not just the Chinese or Micronesians who don't want to see this 'safe' water being released throughout the global oceans.

Yeah, I know. The supermarkets here are already screaming Halloween. Once 31 Oct is over, Christmas songs will be playing and all the decorations will be up.

Oh, and a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to everyone, not that it's a thing here.

Governments who lock people up for being ‘anti-government’ should be universally condemned. Hong Kong has been stolen.

Well, I didn't hear a single word from western countries when the Spanish government punished politicians and others from Catalonia. One politician was even extradited from Belgium. But then again, Spain is part of the west, so different standards apply.

What gets me with the US Open is that Russians (and Belarussians) are allowed to play.

I'm not complaining. I don't remember American and British players being banned when their countries blew up Iraq and its children in an illegal invasion.

When you have a party that is full of closeted homophobic gay men and anti-abortion men who demand their mistresses to get rid of their babies, I really don't take any of these hypocrites seriously.

When the Democrats drop the same bombs as the Republicans to kill innocent people in countries which USA doesn't like, but they put rainbow flags and BLM messages on the bombs.

Peter14:

You've changed your tune. Whenever it's China who's helping out, you can't contain your anger and jealousy enough. No talk of debt trap??!!! One rule for one country, another for others? One face or two face?

China can afford to help. Has Japan forgotten about the ongoing Fukushima problem, payments for last year's Olympics and its own people?

Western countries are NOT helping Ukraine. They are prolonging the war and letting more and more people die. Even Japan and Germany had to surrender eventually to save their own people.

How much do those greedy drivers earn?

Some of them earn £100K a year!

Tell me about it. You don't see nurses going on strike (although they've got a big reason to do so). These drivers aren't earning peanuts.

Funny how most people here are in denial (or ignorant) that Sri Lanka's debt to Japan is the same as to China (each 10% of total debt). Over 40% of the debt is to western and Japanese companies. And that port - Canada was going for that before China went for it - Canada couldn't come up with the finance and so they had to give up - and yet nobody criticized Canada.

When you're in big trouble, pull out the 'fearmongering' card. It's worked in USA, and it'll work in UK and Australia. It's what happens when you have gullible people.
