Today the last printed edition of Apple Daily HK published and also the closure of the web page too. Now there aren’t any government investigating press left in Hong Kong as the HK Government has targeted those who have tried to keep the society open and somewhat equal.
At this date, Mingpao is still operating, trying to be away from politics, so there ain’t anyone to look into the corruption within HK Government and the Mainland Special Regions of China.
The Chinese Government in Taipei condemned the whole political suppression of Hong Kong media under the national security law and by those in power and calling it the “death knell” of Hong Kong’s press and speech freedoms.
A reason why Poroshenko returned to Ukraine may be that he will call for Russian troops to stabilize Ukraine as an unrest in Ukraine has begun, staged by Russian special forces pretending to be Ukrainians.
As Russia hasn’t accepted how Poroshenko was deposed, so they could say he is the President of Ukraine instead of Zelenskyy and those they are responding to the “legal leader” when they cross the border.
This will be in a way a copy of the Nazi German invasion of Poland, just faked facts to make your aggression “valid”. We just have one criminal to thank for the situation with Ukraine and that is Putin, the only proper place for him is hanging from a ligthpole next to the Red Square.
Poor glass hearted PRC is crying for they had to change course of their space station twice due of Elon Musks 1600 satellites, all which has a predictable course. PRC do not shed any tears over the 2800 known derbies of the satellite they blew up with a missile, those unpredictable pieces of debris has caused ISS to have to move multiple times and many times in panic.
The real reason why PRC is whining is that Elon Musk would give free internet access to people in mainland China too and then the citizens in the PRC occupied China would know the truth about the thugs leading CCP, which would lead to the end of CCP. It’s time that CCP to realize that they will not be able to stay in power much longer, the harsh measures they are employing against the Chinese will turn against them.
It was a sad day for my mother and now she has to go to her employer to explain why less than 30% cast a vote in the latest LegCo election in Hong Kong. In a way it was a victory for the corrupt communist party, as there was more or less just their candidates that you could pick from and just pore in some fake votes and you get rid of the opposition that tried to fight against Goliath.
From the numbers we know that less then one fifth of Hongkongers supports the CCP and the madness they have caused while 80% of Hongkongers wants a government elected by them, one free from corruption. How much more face does the CCP need to lose before we get our freedom?
The Swedish “CDC” (folkhälsomyndigheten) decided that those who has been vaccinated against COVID-19 shouldn’t anymore be tested for COVID-19 infection. This even if during September and October, 34% all infected was vaccinated. The idea is that those who are vaccinated do not spread COVID-19 and those do not need to test for COVID-19 if they have symptoms and if you want to test you then you have to pay for your own test kit (healthcare will not test you if you are vaccinated). In reality there will be many spreads that will not be traced and at least 30% of the cases will go undetected, which leads to seem like the COVID-19 situation is a lot better in Sweden than it is. This leads to that you should always consider Sweden as RED and avoid to travel to Sweden, even if the vaccination level will be 72% (at least one shot taken) of the population.
More and more EU countries are applying an pollution tax on flight tickets, one of the first ones was Sweden and now the latest one is Belgium. The big issue with the tax is that it is directly attached to the one who buys the ticket, which means a full flight pays in total more tax for the pollution than the same aircraft with just one passenger.
The system has to be redesigned, that it’s the company who handles the flight who would need to pay the tax based on the fuel usage of the plane, so picking a flight that pollutes less (green energy) should be cheaper than one that pollutes more (traditional fuel). This would encourage companies to buy air craft that are more environment friendly than today’s air crafts and it would make passengers to pick more environment friendly flights to their destination.
With the current environment tax on flights, it just hurts the end customer with higher prices without having any way to affect the flight providers choice of air crafts.
The big struggle EU has ahead of itself is to make it better for the end customer (the citizens), this far it’s been about protecting companies towards customers and penalize customers (VAT on tax is one of such things).
