SANI­TISED TRIP

The Courier-Mail - - LETTERS -

COLUM­NIST Den­nis Atkins ( C-M, Nov 8) pushes trade with China while pay­ing no at­ten­tion to its ex­pan­sion­ist for­eign pol­icy and hor­ren­dous hu­man rights abuses. In­stead, he talks about “China pho­bia” and seems to de­pict US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump as the real vil­lain. I won­der how much of the darker side of China he got to see on his re­cent study tour, or was the tour like the sani­tised trips West­ern in­tel­lec­tu­als used to take to Stal­in­ist Rus­sia?
