I agree with all posters. I find it amazing that State governments, and a Territory in the Darwin case, have the power to do such things. Toni raises a less known case, and then there is the Victorian government's involvement in China's Belt and Road plan, which has seen small island countries become deeply indebted to China.

bring it on

Shi Yinhong, an adviser to China’s cabinet and a professor of international relations at Renmin University in Beijing, said ties between the two nations were more likely to deteriorate than improve, given Australia’s foreign policy alignment with the U.S.

“If the Australian government’s rhetoric is still loud and it sticks to its current demands, China may take more severe countermeasures,” he said. “If the Australian government -- mindful of its economic interests and opposition from the business community -- steps back, China would not need to take such steps.”

I have been arguing this for years, stop relying on authoritarian nation like China.

when I tried to get one of my aggressive pieces published at a university ten years ago, I was told it was not yet ready for such material. It did not want to be seen attacking China, even on a university site that probably few would read.

Yes, why on earth was this allowed ? And Newcastle too, and the port area of Adelaide. How come port leasing aren't federal responsibilities ?

Unpardonable.

My solution: start cancelling permanent residency visas to Chinese and give them 8 weeks to get out of the country.

Misopinionated,

Why do you lurch so often to a racist assertion in relation to anything to do with China and Chinese ? You can't differentiate between the totalitarian Chinese government and the Chinese people ? Do you really imagine that all Chinese people, from all over the world, are unquestioning servants of their rulers ?

Of course, it spares having to actually think.
