erm, "real combat"? Isn't there another word for that? https://t.co/Xk3lMiTVfX

A vast fishing armada of Chinese vessels just off the Galápagos Islands logged an astounding 73,000 hours of fishing during just one month... that's about 2,500 hours a day.... https://t.co/gH5IMP7WZE

This is a tragedy in the making. I learned to dive in the Galapagos in 1998. Absolutely stunning fecundity of underwater life. Ecuador has done well enough renegotiating its debts to China so far but it has little heft (only 2 frigates!) to push back so far from its shores. https://t.co/ygNfp8LKL9

Can anyone in Hong Kong open https://t.co/xIikwGO7fC? Appears to be blocked, can't tell from which side.

Very different tone from a letter that went out earlier today. https://t.co/Har2gokwmo

May I present to you the Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services? https://t.co/JRyz83Ebiq

Unwritten credit rules circulated by Beijing have prompted China Evergrande to offer discounts of 30% or more. That will eat further into profit and make it harder to cut debt. The aggressive gambit may, however, cripple the competition, says @ywchen1: https://t.co/n5Gi7r27Aj. https://t.co/wWYqzwYAuH

Welcoming @ywchen1 Chen Yawen's first piece for Breakingviews, on debt-addled developer Evergrande, its 6.41 debt-to-equity ratio, and Beijing's "three red lines". https://t.co/P9ezdxnFSA

The WTO just ruled against Trump’s China tariffs. The case ended up hinging on a question that seems pretty unrelated to trade: Does the totality of a country’s legal system say anything about its moral values? Thread https://t.co/YXIUWtUO8H

Beijing is letting lenders go belly-up as it attacks systemic risk. That’s all fine for Benjamin Fanger, founder of ShoreVest, a manager $1.8 bln of soured loans. He talks with @petesweeneypro about China's bad debt opportunity, listen to the podcast here: https://t.co/H5Kw9zZuSg https://t.co/ohSLloI03P

A fun conversation with Ben, one of the pioneers in Chinese NPL recovery. He sure does file a lot of lawsuits, but that's the business for you. He makes a solid case that buying distressed assets in China is a good business, and getting better. https://t.co/Qgu9E9yrIw

There are Chinese racists. That doesn't mean foreign brands should pander to bigots. Jackie Chan is actually a model here: he has teamed up wh black actors. His "uncle" married a black woman - and kissed her onscreen - in Rumble in the Bronx. He still made money.

Perfume-maker Jo Malone took an ad filmed by John Boyega of Star Wars and refilmed it for China using a Chinese actor and zero black people. Sadly, Boyega must be used to this; remember what happened to him in Star Wars posters in China:

Apparently Guo Wengui released a $0.99 anthem rock track "Take Down the CCP" that overtook Cardi B to reach #1 on the iTunes chart on Sept 10. It's still top 50:  https://t.co/jcVYZAR7VB https://t.co/iu8sY5ehIu

@SiobhanFenton It doesn't sound like you've read the GFA. I suggest you do so. The UK internal market will not be divided to suit your brand of terrorism.

Men on the internet telling me, author of the book ‘The Good Friday Agreement’ which is (unsurprisingly) about the Good Friday Agreement, to read the Good Friday Agreement is my favourite genre of reply guy https://t.co/S8DAhEpiCf

Key to Ant’s success is its cut from lining up credit, insurance and wealth customers. A Breakingviews calculator suggests a reasonable starting point would be about $275 bln, says @mak_robyn: https://t.co/UvhfRCjBe8. Run the numbers here: https://t.co/2pvcfhPROb. https://t.co/Qas7Pj2yF3

Fun interactive calculator. At the high end of the assumptions, Ant is worth $564.7 billion. A bargain at any price, I'm sure. https://t.co/UANZpm0PmT

Chinas foreign ministry just confirmed that detained Aus journalist Cheng Lei is “suspected of carrying out illegal activities endangering chinas national security”, hours after Aus media journalists hit the ground back in Australia following a days long evacuation effort.

It's nice to be home but deeply disappointing to leave China under such abrupt circumstances. It's been a big part of my life & the past week was surreal. A very big thank you to the ABC, friends, colleagues & those involved at DFAT. Plus @MikeSmithAFR for sharing the ride out. https://t.co/zkJEV4Oa27

To make Mulan, Disney worked with four propaganda departments in the Chinese region of Xinjiang, the site of a genocide against Muslims, and the Xinjiang public security bureau. This is a horrific. Here's my article on the subject, and a thread on why. https://t.co/jlbv7QusCb
