If there was ever any doubt as to the wisdom of St. Theresa's decision to delay and think hard on whether we should accept zillions from the Chinese to build a French nuclear plant then the Chinese ambassador to London just settled it. Apparently, he has written to The Times (I think) saying, in effect, if you don't accept this kind and generous loan then "there may be troubles ahead"! My immediate response was to mutter, "Bring it on" but then I thought twice (hard work for me these days!) and instead I am deeply grateful. Now we can see at first hand the iron fist inside this velvet Chinese glove and the thought of that ghastly country and the gangsters who run it having a knife to our throat by access to the computer systems that run our energy systems is frightening. Only those two dim, posh boys would have fallen for it but now, thanks to all you brave Brexiteers, they are history, or to be precise, historical footnotes.
(Just a note to say that the 'Memsahib' and I are on an outing today so I apologise for not being able to join the conversation in the comments to the posts below.)
