(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
The only official protest about the democracy demonstrations taking place in China at the moment has come from Deputy PM Nick Clegg.
Not a peep from Cameron or Osborne.
Could this be connected to the fact that Cameron and Osborne have been selling off our essential infrastructure to the Chinese, who now own large parts of our water, electricity and gas supplies?
In December last year Cameron went to China, to persuade the Chinese government to
buy up invest in Britain.
Chinese organisations and businesses with close links to the Chinese Communist leadership have already large stakes and controlling interests in huge parts of UK essential infrastructure such as water, gas, electricity, telecommunications and transport.
George Osborne on a visit to Xhina in 2012, persuaded the Chinese government to buy a stake in the UK’s biggest water and sewage company, Thames Water, which serves about 14 million customers. Osborne himself said he hoped this was just the beginning of Chinese investment in UK infrastructure.
Speaking about the deal, Osborne said:
“This is a significant step by China. This investment is good news for both the British and Chinese economies.”
The Chinese also control UK telecommunications networks such as 3UK and other telecommunications companies.
Osborne returned to China in October last year and announced a new visa system which allows rich Chinese to automatically come to the UK so the Chinese can buy up even more of our infrastructure.
Perhaps you’re comfortable with the Chinese controlling your water and power supplies and being in charge of your communication services.
But if so many people are concerned about the loss of UK sovereignty to the EU – shouldn’t we be having a referendum on the loss of our sovereignty to the Chinese too?
