“A new superpower is on the march and Western democracies are once again failing to understand the threat. We have indulged China as it embarked upon its extraordinary ascent, attempting to deepen our engagement instead of subjecting Beijing to proper scrutiny. For the past 40 years, we have somehow persuaded ourselves that an authoritarian Communist state would evolve into a global citizen embracing liberty and open trade. Today we must face the harsh reality that we’ve been duped.” Rt Hon Tobias Ellwood PC MP, 11th July 2020 |
(Ellwood) served in the Royal Green Jackets from 1991 to 1996. He is still serving, holding the rank of Lieutenant Colonel on 77 Brigade.
The 77th Brigade is the propaganda/psyops wing of the British Army, of course.
