China ‘goes after Australia’ with brand new iron ore ‘threat’ | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Paul Murray says “there is a brand new threat” issued by the Chinese Communist Party who have said they “are ready to hurt the Australian economy”. \n\nChina’s The Global Times reported “it seems the Australian government has no intention of sowing new troubles in its trade with China, but the possibility of deteriorating tensions escalating into a trade war should not be ignored”. \n\nMr Murray said it is clear China is once again “threatening us” and they 'are confirming by their actions that they are going after us”.\n\n“First it was barley, then a bit on beef and now the big game, iron ore”. \n\nThe Age reported “China’s customs authorities have released new rules coming into force on June 1 that officials would conduct quality inspections for iron ore shipments at the request of the buyer”.\n\n“The buyer of course is the Chinese Communist Party,” Mr Murray said. \n 1Naasty what does Australia produce that China needs Food!! Our big problem - Australia is the most China-dependent economy in the developed world. The other big problem is that most people in Australia are not aware of that fact. China is indeed drunk on power however the Chinese economy is like a HOUSE OF CARDS - their economy is in dire straits. Looking forward to the collapse. You can't believe one word they say, they are like gangsters thieving in the night! Your threats show weakness not strength!
