I have never trusted the Chinese government, most of their people are fine people. Their government is backwards in human rights, freedom of speech and controlled media oppression. The free trade agreement I never liked for that very reason, now because Australia stand firm with the international court's ruling in the South China sea, we are being threatened.

The world is a very volatile place at the moment, forget about the Middle east, I have always said that we must watch China.

My experience of Chinese people in this wonderful city is excellent, they are hard working members of this community, however the backwards views of the Chinese Government are very visible lately, and why do we have a free trade agreement? This country is overrun with their shoddy products which have put our good quality manufacturing industries out of business.

I had the same experience when I lived their PK, they were always polite and hard working as you said. Makes you wonder how wonderful their country might be with good government.

China's economy is slowing.   I wonder how this will impact on the already divisive classes in China.  I worry that the sweat shops which employ the poorer class of these beautiful people will see even more poverty and stress placed on the hardworking and backbone of the Chinese economy.

Funny you should mention that KM, I thought exactly the same thing whilst I was writing my last post. Child labour is another problem over there as well, or it used to be. As usual it will be the poorer people who suffer, but they won't stop making war machines and bombs though.

May the economic slow down might be a good thing in this case?

Our nation's dollar seems irrevocably linked to the Chinese Yuan, gawd help us if their economy stalls/stops, we will all be growing rice in our backyards. Fright/Cold

That's what you get when you have governments that rely solely on imports and exports without any self supporting industry of our own.

Whatever happens with this situation in this sea I feel that we need to start really building on our defence capabilities, especially if Trump becomes the next US president, who knows if he will support the US allies?

This man is a wildcard, but has the majority of the US population right behind him.

On the news tonight, Hilary appears to be gaining the American vote - perhaps the tide has turned.

I admit to not knowing too much about their politics - but it seems to me that Trump is a divisive dictator.  Imagine what it would be like to have Trump and Putin in the same room.  I really believe that this is no time in world history to have egomaniacs in charge of the "red button".  My feelings about this is not so much because I'm a woman, but rather the hope that the "hand that rocks the cradle rules the world" may give a more feminine and peaceful approach to world problems, rather the "gung ho" approach I suspect we would see if Trump is elected.

Bullant, I agree with you.  We've supported the USA in so many conflicts over the years.  We at least should be supported in kind.

If you challenge anything about Trump on twitter all hell breaks loose! I was blocked by one person (it was his loss)  Lol over an opinion I had about a fallen Muslim US Marine who died fighting for the US army to which he belonged, and Trump failed to acknowledge the young man in a heated debate with his Muslim parents. It's a complicated story, but I thought Trump should have at least acknowledge their son's sacrifice out of human decency? I only mention this to reinforce my first point about Trump supporters. Tirant!

I agree with you Km, but in the eyes of the US people he's the best thing since sliced bread. Dunno
