O’Neill speaks out

“If you want to lecture China about the way they live their life, don’t think you are going to have a special relationship”


Jim O’Neill discusses worsening Sino-British ties with newspaper The Times. A former Treasury Minister during the so-called Golden Era of relations in 2015-16, he added: “At the end of the day, economics somehow gets in the way of diplomacy, and China just marches on. The more successful they are, the more envy they seem to goad in the US and UK.”
