"I think one of the most striking things for me in this piece is various leaders of German industry and government minister as well have admitted that what the paper calls their blindness to Vladimir Putin has caused them to make big mistakes. Yesterday, for instance, the former boss of Siemens Joe Kaiser admitted that his strategy of what's the strategy of what's known as change through commerce, which Germany has been pursuing over the last few decades, has not been as successful as he had hoped. And Frank Walter steinmeier, who's a former minister and supporter of the Nord stream two gas project, says we're still attached to a bridges or connections that Russia doesn't believe in and that our colleagues have warned us about. So a real sort of mayor culprit if you like a real sort of expression of hurt, I think, as much of anything that this policy really has not worked. And I mean, for instance, the times today is talking about Merkel's toxic legacy and really a lot of the blame for this as being pinned on her and her policies to do with the oil and gas and Russia. Yeah, absolutely. And real sort of criticism of the fact that she was very much an advocate of Nord stream two of this what some people would say is making Germany has made Germany completely reliant on Russian gas. And in fact, the telegraph also points out that the European Union, for instance, spent 35 times more on Russian energy imports than weapons for Ukraine since the invasion according to Jose borrell. So yeah, a real sort of outpouring of concern and as I say sort of soul searching when it comes to the policy that Germany especially, but really so many other countries as well have pursued over the last few decades. Let's jump to China now, or at least Hong Kong, but the South China morning post is giving us a profile of Hong Kong's chief secretary Lee. Why is that important? Yeah, so from one if we're talking about human rights and concerns obviously about Russia, then obviously China has also been very much under the microscope. So Carrie lam, who is the current chief executive, has announced, as you know, that she won't pursuing a second term after what could be described as a turbulent time in office. And there's now a lot of interest in the current or who he's recently resigned, but he was the chief secretary, John Lee, who is now its thought, according to the South China morning post, going to take a run for the top job replacing Carrie lam. I would say that if you thought that Carrie lam was weak when it came to managing Beijing's effect on Hong Kong, then John Lee will just be sort of complicit or even zealous. I think the important point is here and without actually saying it the South China morning post brings it out is that John Lee's whole career really has been in the police. So when Carrie lam took the top job in 2017, she elevated him to secretary for security in 2018. He banned a pro independence Hong Kong national pro independence Hong Kong national party and this marked the first time a political party has been declared unlawful the science Chinese South China mining post reminds us he also introduced legislation or tried to, which would have allowed for suspects to be transferred to Mainland China for trial, which triggered massive public backlash. So just looking at his CV, you can see what kind of boss of Hong Kong he would be. Absolutely quite chilling. Really? Let's turn to the times now. And this is in fact in times two in the arts section. But it's an interview with the director of a documentary on the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Yeah, absolutely. So the times is film critic Kevin Maher talks to die Daniel roe, who is the Canadian director of this documentary. And Kevin mar points out, there's a squad of sinister government assassins and mountain hideaway and impossibly handsome hero who's backed by his intimidating right hand woman. There's an eccentric tech nerd. There's a nail biting phone scene with echoes of Liam Neeson in the film taken. There's violence betrayal chaos on the streets, a cowardly Uber villain even and of course the best thing about it, it's nonfiction. It's all real. So yes, even the interview with Daniel rower this director was rather rather sort of cloak and dagger. First of all, it was going to be on Zoom and then that didn't work, then it was going to be on a phone line which cut out a few times. So the whole thing is very spooky, but certainly it sounds like an absolutely amazing film that we really ought to go and see. Simon, thank you very much indeed. That Simon Brooke, and this is the globalist on monocle 24. UBS is a global financial services firm with over 150.

I'm i'm personally. I've had two kids serving rack. And i gotta say that that I do think that it would be difficult at this stage to look apparent in the eye and say yeah we lost one more and it was a good thing for america and so i think the decision to not have troops. There is probably a good one. I don't know what are you saying. I'm kind of this thing. And i think that the war has gone on for a while already We've voter reason. We went there Nozaki different theories on there. But they've gone on long enough. I don't agree with giving the deadline Time day like we do. The canister will be up of this time. Let's do it on our own time. But i do think we should. We should pull out of iraq on there but we also sat to support their. Make sure that they don't get some extremists Regime 'cause actually funny enough. I was watching a short documentary. On how the militia taken over in iraq and now the iraqi military's having to not just fight isis to confront but the militias to their size at our as well and the and i. I'm sympathetic to that. I that idea that we should be On extremist watch but realistically there are you know twenty five places in the world were. Extremists are beginning to take hold and gain some level of dominance. Whether that's boko haram in nigeria. I think or some of these other groups and so we then send troops and help everywhere where there are extremists on the rise or should we just say you know when those extremists threaten. Us interests and you know how broadly you wanted to find you. A centrist is another question but when when they threaten. Us interests our allies. That's when we get involved. So i don't think if you balanced that it was interest 'cause we're because iraq is right there goal if False issues regime. They can send boats out into that canal there and start choking up the supply oil but resonated around and they're in islamist machine regime right there and they already do that to some extent.

China Passes Hong Kong National Security Law to Crush Threats

"Hong Kong is a global banking center home to several multinational companies. It seen by the business community as a gateway to China was so much at stake. We're taking a closer look at the impact of China's new security on the region Wall Street. Journal markets. Columnist Mike. Byrd is based in Hong Kong. He joins US NOW MIKE WELCOME! Thanks very much for having me. Mike you're on the ground in Hong. Kong you are very much in touch with the business community. Put this in perspective for us. Just how big of a deal is this? The first thing to say is that we don't have a lot of detail on what is going in this low. We know that it will have rules on secessionist Atta. Choose to subversion of the Chinese state and to some vague implications. Abou- coming under foreign influence, but we don't know the straight detail of it. The actual text of the law has yet to be published, so it's difficult for businesses to make a firm idea of of what this is going to mean for them for the moment. Moment is a lot of confusion, and it's also extremely sensitive topic, because not knowing what's in that bill means that you don't know what will be illegal to save from tomorrow. What you may encounter legal difficulties from saying a lot of international businesses staying relatively quiet about that even now organizations like the American Chamber of Commerce relatively quiet organizations that have to be fat up until now been fairly critical of the idea of the national security, though a now being very cautious about what they say. Mike as you know as we've reported a top executive from banking, giant HSBC signed a petition supporting the legislation, saying it supports any law to stabilize social order in Hong, Kong and economic prosperity and development to have that backing from HSBC. How significant is that? I think hate be. Situation has turned out to be as a bit of a microcosm for war. The problem is for businesses more broadly in Hong Kong, which is a SPEC- signed up to the idea. The national security though they had an executive sign up to that was referred to in Chinese media in state media as sort of too little too late that that support was slow that it wasn't absolute that it wasn't clear from the beginning now. Hong Kong HSBC was obviously criticize full completely the opposite for signing the bill astle is very difficult to find this sort of middle ground position that businesses like hate pc, especially those with sort of one foot in the West and one foot in China. They've done really well in the past couple of decades in Montaigne and jewel role. It's now increasingly difficult to. To do the HAGIA species come under fire from both sides for doing it. It's likely to continue doing so, and that's going to be the case for other large Hong Kong. Business as you go companies like Johnny Matheson, which are really West and run by of had a big influence in Asia for longtime. They're gonNA find it increasingly difficult to straddle both sides. I WANNA. Point out at the time HSBC said it supported laws that will enable Hongkong to rebuild its economy and maintain the principle of one country, two systems, any indication from any companies, especially those that are based in the West that they will curb their presence or scale back their presence or future business deals in Hong Kong. You've seen some smaller organizations to that. In the couple of research firms here, but people mostly stray away from saying for a couple of reasons, one thing is if you have to do business in mainland China saying that you leaving Hong. Kong because of a load of the government of mainland China wants to pass is a bad look. It's not GonNa win you any friends in the mainland. The second reason is purely cost related. It's expensive to move people and if If it becomes the case that it won't disrupt Your Business Operations you've moved people. You probably lost employees in the process. You probably lost deals in the process for no reason. as a reporter is sold. Is Covering London during twenty sixteen businesses talked a lot about leaving because of brexit talks about the risks. Relatively few of them did precisely because it's so expensive to do so disruptive if there are any circumstances in which you can stay, you probably will. And Mike as a journalist who lives in Hong Kong who is very familiar with the business community. What are the lingering questions you have? What are the unknowns that need to be answered to get scope about the significance and impact of this decision. I think the honest answer is that we won't know enough about the little to know how Lafayette businesses until it begins being enforced you have lose like this in mainland China and it's the selectiveness of their enforcement. That really matters whether it's used as the Hong Kong. Government is broadly suggesting the Hong Kong. Government. He's very keen to stress that this won't affect most people that it shouldn't affect national businesses. Many businesses may not in a cynical way mind this of law, if it really just applies to political dissidents, if it's just used to crackdown police political dissidents, and that will be the same as many businesses finding mainland China, many businesses find. Find even in places like Singapore they can live without sort of thing, but the strict text of the bill may prove to provide situations for the Hong Kong government to pursue international businesses if they wanted to. So I think we'll have to see where we are in a few months time once the lawyers and who's being caught up in it. Who's being warned about legally? WHO's actually going to call? He's being prosecuted for until that happens is going to be really difficult to say the soda scope of the Law until it actually begins to fullest. Mike Byrd joining us from Hong Kong great to have you on the podcast. Thanks very much.
