Did Rishi get the memo? Rishi is saying we should trade more with China and have our financial services try offer their services.

But the head of Mi5 is saying something else -

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...o-threat-from-china-and-russia-says-mi5-chief

The chief of MI5 is to warn that the activities of China, Russia and other hostile states could have as large an impact on the public as terrorism, marking a significant shift in emphasis from the UK’s domestic spy agency.

https://www.theguardian.com/politic...rightwing-terror-suspect-who-was-13-years-old

MI5’s chief has revealed that the agency had found itself investigating a neo-Nazi terror suspect who was 13 years old, part of a “rising trend” of radicalised teenagers becoming engaged in rightwing terrorism across the UK.

Ken McCallum, the domestic spy agency’s director general, warned that extreme rightwing terror accounted for one in five of all counter-terror investigations, a threat that had “grown and morphed quite substantially over the last five to 10 years”.

A particular problem, he said, was the “high prevalence” of teenagers in rightwing terror investigations, which he suggested was because youngsters were being swept up in a “toxic ideology” of “online extremists and echo chambers”.

Stoking the culture war wins votes but will fracture society.

The Yankee republicans never saw it coming. Stitched 'em up good and proper - laughing stock of the world for four long turbulent years. Hats off to The Kremlin.
Just remind us how vulnerable those rich US companies are to Russian hackers, lol.

Oh really? From Russia? And just what are British warships doing in or very close to Russian waters? A bit of fishing?
