Britain’s intelligence community believes that the UK needs to reassess its relationship with China after the coronavirus crisis subsides and consider if tighter controls should be put in place.
“They reckon China will become more assertive in defending its one-party model as having successfully tackled the pandemic and that Boris Johnson and other ministers will have to take a ‘realistic view’ and consider how the UK responds,” The Guardian reported. “Issues being aired are whether the UK wants to restrict takeovers of key companies in high-tech areas such as digital communications and artificial intelligence and whether it should reduce Chinese students’ access to research at universities and elsewhere.”
Britain’s top intelligence officials are reportedly signaling that it is time for the U.K. to rethink its relationship with China after the communist nation lied and tried to cover up the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.
“I have today left hospital after a week in which the NHS has saved my life. No question,” Johnson said. “It’s hard to find words to express my debt, but before I come to that, I want to thank everyone in the entire UK for the effort and the sacrifice you have made, and are making.”
Johnson praised, by name, the specific people in the hospital who took care of him at a time when he said that “things could have gone either way.”
“MI6 is also understood to have told ministers that China was significantly under-reporting the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in January and February, echoing similar briefings given by the CIA to the White House,” The Guardian reported. “A group of Conservative backbenchers, many of whom were prominent Brexiters, have begun to form a bloc of China-sceptics.” More
