Australia's Foreign Minister Marise Payne joins her British and Canadian counterparts in issuing a statement critical of China's plan to expand its ability to monitor and oversee Hong Kong's security operations and target people seeking to undermine China's authority.

We abuse the Chinese in all sorts of nasty (sometimes racist) ways.

And yet, when it comes to real breaches of a real international treaty governing Hong Kong, we seem almost tongue-tied.

China's proposed new national security laws in Hong Kong could lead to sanctions from the United States and threaten the city's status as a financial hub, a US Government official says.

That's going to be interesting. Is China ready to strike out on its own and create all new world currency and world banking?

That's the key to breaking US hegemony, after all.

China's top foreign official in Hong Kong says the introduction of controversial security legislation will alleviate concerns about 'violent and terrorist forces' sparked by the city's pro-democracy protests.

For all we know, there are foreign agitators, state players, there.

US Secretary of State of Mike Pompeo says 'no reasonable person' can say Hong Kong any longer enjoys a high degree of autonomy from China, which sets the stage for a war of words between Washington and Beijing.

The US is almost bound to be using the place to spy on China.
