Earlier today I published this week’s episode of Sharp China. From the show notes: On today's show Andrew and Bill begin with Wednesday's announcement that the EU will increase tariffs on electric vehicles imported from the PRC, including potential responses from Beijing, the fissures among the EU coalition, the reality on the ground in and around Europe, and the war in Ukraine looming over the decisions from EU policymakers. From there: An attack on four U.S. teachers in Jilin, the reactions among commentators in the U.S., and life for Americans living in the PRC. At the end: Xi Jinping asks entrepreneurs where all of China's billion-dollar startups have gone, questions about how Apple's AI plans might work in China, and an extended discussion of corruption among the party and the PLA, the baseline opacity of investigations, and a few memorable cases from the past.

For the past 15 years, at News of the World, ITV, The Sun, The Daily Mail and GB News, Dan saw, bit by bit, how political and corporate pressures resulted in free thought being extinguished, with views that didn't fit the corporate narrative being censored. Now he brings his exclusives and commentary on politics, the culture war and the British Royal Family directly to his Outspoken Network
