Too many successive Governments cosied up to China – Boris is right to end all that

Broken China

FOR far too long successive Governments cosied up to China. Boris Johnson is right to end all that.

It was a triumph of hope over experience.

Britain aimed to cash in on China’s economic explosion and see it transition from hardline Communism to a more liberal order.

How naïve it was.

Today Beijing is guilty not just of unleashing Covid but doing everything to cover its tracks.

It has imprisoned a million Uighur Muslims in slave camps.

It is behind constant cyber-crime against UK firms and universities.

In Hong Kong it has torn up agreed freedoms meant to last 50 years from 1997.

These are not the actions of a friend to Britain.

China behaves as Communist tyrannies always do.

And if you speak out you disappear, as ex-Wimbledon champ Peng Shuai seems to have done.

Boris was right to bar Huawei from our 5G network.

And, yes, we should snub Beijing’s Winter Olympics.

These must be just the start of a wider shift away from a repugnant regime.

Woe on bills

FORGET HS2, or sleaze.

The cost of living may damage the Government far more.

More than 60 per cent of us found life more expensive in the last month, with food, fuel and energy bills all soaring.

The only surprise is it’s as few as that.

As inflation climbs, it will get worse.

And this is before next year’s foolish National Insurance increase, or the mortgage hike now looking inevitable.

Boris must focus on reducing our bills.

No more tax rises, PM. Cut them instead.

Keir karma

SO much for Keir “man of ­principle” Starmer.

Asked why he campaigned for hard-Left extremist and anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn to be PM, he is struck dumb.

He still cannot answer that basic question, to which millions will want an answer before the next election.

Other Labour MPs ran a mile from Corbyn.

Starmer sat at his right hand.

Meanwhile, Labour’s leader is desperate to convince the North that Boris betrayed them by scrapping the Leeds leg of HS2.

Except Starmer wanted the entire project axed, voting against it in 2016.
Ignore his hype as the brainy lawyer.

He is an opportunist whose judgement is all over the place because, at heart, he doesn’t much believe in anything.

Blunt object

TODAY we reveal how a man ruined his neighbours’ lives by blasting out James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful.

They ended up losing sleep and suffering from stress, fatigue and anxiety.

And you should have seen them after he played it twice.
