An article in Xinhua asks the question “It’s Time For Australia to Decide What Kind of Relationship it Wants With China”
I am a supporter of having a peaceful open relationship with China, but nothing annoys me more than when they start bullying and getting their knickers in a knot simply because an open free democratic country asks questions about China’s true motives.

This is what China does not understand, of course Australia has a right to be suspicious, your government and country has a history of abuse, thuggery, under the table deals, silencing protest, corruption. Australia will always ask questions especially when political donations are involved. china, you have a history.

So, I turn the question around and ask...

“It’s time for China to Decide What Kind of Relationship it Wants with Australia”

It works both ways, something China hasn’t quite worked out yet.

Australia is free to write and decide whatever on its White Paper. However, blaming China for political donations is not fair.

1) There is no proof but only speculation that China is trying to influence Australia politically.

2) The donor has Australian citizenship although ethnic Chinese.

3) The donation can be refused and there would be no issue, so why blame only the donor (or even China)? What about the receiver? It takes 2 hands to clap.

4) If Australia has the "right to be suspicious", China should have the right to refute too.

5) By refuting the accusation, it is not similar to "bullying". There is no sign or indication at all that there is a hint of "bullying".

6) This matter has nothing to do with "open free democratic country" or any form of political ideology.

7) All countries "have a history".

It works both ways, something Australia hasn't quite worked out yet.

There is plenty of proof of the Chinese government meddling in Australian democracy using what the Chinese don’t have freedom of speech

Your comments pack a punch, thumbs-up.

This witch-hunt is all a political stunt aimed at distracting the public from bread and butter matters they failed to address.



Believe it or not, it's true.
