@AmySommers1  @mebeSajidSS  @BeijingPalmerl @niubiightly  tangential, but the ca #Cathayse  is also instructive. It is as though the CCP/OrBuro's remit to choose top executives extends to any company now not just in HK, but over any corporate which Beijing feels it can exercise power over...

The Chinese government cares about climate change. The Chinese people? Not so much - and that's a problem @AdamMinter 

@AndrewSErickson  @yarotrofF  @WSJunnily  enough, there was a short book published on the same theme with the almost exact same title a month ago which m @WSJust  have missed.

@chenweihua  Why do you think that people in HK across the board are so angry? Why don't they trust the mainland two decades after re-unification? And please don't blame the CIA.

@gumnut49  @michellegrattanF  @Birmoalse  dichotomy. Just because something is in the "national interest ", it doesn't mean that anyone speaking up at any time is doing any good. Whoever need Andrew Hastie to remind them that China was an important issue?

France refuses to sign onto #BRI  and inks EU40bn in China deals; Italy signs onto and gets contracts for a fraction of that. Even with the Airbus inflation, noteworthy:

“Don’t talk, just listen. We have two teams coming for you.” Terrific @WSJ ⁩ story on Meng Hongwei and Interpol.

“Some of them are prepared to die for the movement. I am also willing to die for it.” How desperate citizens became radicals. Excellent @WSJ  article on HK protests:

Xi not just worried about Soviet-style collapse; but also the rise of an politized oligarch-class in its aftermath:

Story not getting attention it deserves: 5th, yes, 5th, HK seller of books critical of CCP goes mysteriously missing

“I smiled and said, of course I am in favour of One Country, Two Systems. And in my heart, I thought, screw you.”

The phrase “must read” is hackneyed but it definitely applies to this book. Astounding story of global corruption, starting in #malaysia  #1MDB
