Speaking about arrogance....this is what happened earlier this monthInteresting take on Chinese behaviour at the recent APEC in PNG, with accusations of dummy spitting and bullying by Chinese officials. I noticed all the flags and photos of Xi around the place on the news coverage and it does speak somewhat of Chinese arrogance. I remember an incident earlier in the year at the South Pacific Forum in Nauru, where a Chinese official spat the dummy and threw his toys out of the cot, when he was put in his place by the Forum Chair for speaking out of turn and bullying at the opening of the forum. There is also an ongoing situation in NZ where a leading academic has been targeted by China because of her work on Chinese influence campaigns in foreign countries. Her office and home have been burgled with laptops and phones taken but other valuables left behind. Since then her car has been tampered with. NZ is also a target for Chinese interference and it may be upping the ante. Unfortunately Kiwi pollies, especially the current PM, are to gutless to do anything about it. They have their heads stuck down the proverbial dunny.

Im not surprised. China is a communist country, there is no press freedom, only state controlled propaganda is allowed. But now the chinese think they have the right to control the media abroad. Bit by bit they show their true face...
