    The only industry that they have not placed a tariff is to the industry of armaments. That one has been left intact

    Imagine if China arrested Ivanka Trump and put her on trial for some of her dubious business dealings.

    Could we call Meng Wanzhou the first POW in this trade war.

    The Chinese government might also arrest the US ambassador in Beijing and asked for an exchange of prisoners as the soviet did in 1962

    As socialists you’re right, it’s not our problem but like Brexit, it is us who pay the consequences. So it is of concern. Their decisions mean our jobs, pensions, houses, food.

    And I reiterate: these twats are fiddling with capitalism whilst the planet literally burns. I think it’s too late to stop catastrophic climate change and the government’s know it. These trade wars are the start for the scrabble to stockpile remaining available resources.

    This is a struggle between capitalists fighting for market. As always the leftwingers are taking side with one group of the capitalist class

    An ex-Canadian diplomat has been detained in China, and until now the Canadian government doesn’t know why he has been detained. This situation might turn into a prisoners exchange deal
