But the consequences will be great. Australia will be needlessly poorer, more isolated from our region, and more dependent on the uncertain protection of faraway Five Eyes friends. Without a dialogue with China, our necessary engagement with our region will be handicapped. Lee Kuan Yew’s friendly warning — “be careful or you will be the poor white trash of Asia” — comes back now to haunt us.

Regarding Lai’s live broadcasts on social platforms with foreign politicians, Professor Chan Wai-keung from School of Professional Education and Executive Development, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University criticised Lai’s steadfastness and said that no member of the Democratic and Republican Party of the United States is willing to talk to him anymore. The foreign politicians he talked to are all relatively inferior and less well-known. Chan said that Lai’s influence has been declining since he was arrested many times. At present, he is only deceiving Hong Kong people to make people think that his influence is still strong.

We are speaking shortly before the US presidential election. Lai wanted Donald Trump to win. He is a particular admirer of Trump’s aggressive stance towards China. “He deals with reality, he’s not a gentleman. He plays hardball and this is effective,” Lai says. “The only way to avoid war with China is to threaten war,” he adds.

– Some Stooge.
