    China isn't a global power but they spend a billion dollars a year on foreign investments?

    lol.

    I mean.

    I just can't.

    *dead*

    You actually are insanely deluded if you think that China has less clout than the UK does.

    When we handed Hong Kong over to the Chinese, that was the point where we accepted that they were a greater power than us.

    @Job does that mean that you believe if that the UK and China had a negotiation for a trade deal, you believe that the UK holds the better cards?

    Go to Africa, or latin America, or central Asia, and use your eyes, then tell me China isn't a global power.

    On the one hand he wants a deal, on the other... Brexit negotiating team shrinks to only four staff

    And yet still, China is a regional power.

    As usual you have the assumptions on your heads about Britains world position..the EU and just about everything.

    No no I have come to the conclusion he is absolutely mentally challenged, probably from inbreeding;)

    No I have experience and don’t get my “facts” from the Daily Express or Reddit. Britain leads China in two areas; ability to project military power (a highly arbitrary measure that fails to account for the UK’s complete inability to sustain operations despite two shiny new aircraft carriers; these rankings are basically “hardware porn” for military fanboys), and foreign direct investment in leading economies (not overall FDI, but Britain has more invested in the US and EU than China; they’re on par in Africa and China has more FDI everywhere else and a bigger overall investment pool than the UK).

    As for “soft power”; since I can show rankings that put the UK 1st, 6th, 2nd and 4th, I’ll take the whole idea with a pinch of salt.

    Most importantly; by every material measure the UK is dropping in global importance and China is rising.

    90% of the British population give zero shits about their neighbours, or some members of their own family that they don't like, so expecting them to give a shit about places they don't live that are hundreds of miles away from their homes is probably asking a bit much.

    In the same way, nobody from NI really gives a shit about the UK either.

    Not really adding much here apart from stating the bleeding obvious :)

    All I did during that video is look at Boris saying to myself 'pls wake up, he can't be prime minister, shirley.'

    So..you finally agree.

    Yes things will change, but China has very little military leverage outside of its region.
    Thats why its a regional power.

    Regional military power. Which has no bearing on anything being discussed here.

    You're still not answering the fucking question though.


    What is the relevance of military strength in regards to Brexit?
