    China After This Crisis


    2 Not allowed!
    More and more, I'm feeling anger towards China, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

    Due to their dirty lies and lack of handling of the virus, we are suffering badly. I could lose my job, along with millions of others and more importantly, we are losing loved ones.

    After this is over, shall the world turn towards China and order enquiries and economic sanctions?

    I think so, it's costing jobs and lives and they clearly do not give much of a shit, bar sending some medical supplies to Italy to make themselves look nice. They are even trying to start a war of words with the USA in saying it was the US who started all of this, for once, I agree with Trump and his anti Chinese rhetoric, he has said it exactly how it is and has every right to be hostile towards them.

    Personally, I'll never visit their country after this, which is a shame, unless they make up for it in providing details of why they so badly mishandled the whole outbreak and why they lied during the start of the outbreak and even then, I'll only go if I really wanted to and thought it was worth it. They need to take it seriously that their wildlife trade needs to end, they have been warned by the worlds scientists so many times before this happened, that we could have a global pandemic of a virus of some sorts and now look where they are.

    What are your thoughts?

    I'll be boycotting Chinese goods where I can.

    Obviously there will be Chinese components within goods assembled elsewhere, but life is too short to stress about that. The main boycott will do.

    Iím never having chow mien again. And this week Iíll be searching my house for anything made in China and throwing it out.

    If people are prepared to pay more for their goods might be easier, but sadly we live in a consumer , must be cheap society.

    Company I work for is a US company that mainly manufacturers in China. For government contracts we have to use Taiwan assembly which carries about a 7% cost increase
    900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

    It’d be nice if the CCP ruling elite were overthrown.

    Problem is, China has never 'done' democracy. Clear out this lot and they will only replace it with some other despot. They love a despot, the Chinese. Maybe the next one will be religious. Then we're really ****ed.

    And, to be fair, the ruling elite were responsible for sorting things out - it was the local party who ****ed up (albeit because they were afraid of the ruling elite - luckily this is no longer a problem for the local leaders, as they have all now been executed bythe ruling elite).

    But...no, the OP is correct, this is the outcome of unhealthy animal husbandry and, as a mate of mine put it, the fact that when someone found a pangolin scoffing a bat he though the best thing was to put the lot in a stir fry.

    Whether our boycotting China would have the slightest effect on them is moot. No....it isn't moot. Its laughable.

    You cant overthrow a government that got a digital mass surveillance system, so it will never happen. The chance is gone.
