  2. American politicians have talked about sanctions on sponsors as a way to push the USOC into boycotting.
  3. I bet it leads to at least 10 countries fully boycotting.
  4. The IOC might end up ensuring in 15 years they are no more Olympic Games
  5. I think a full boycott is going to happen. Peng Shuai will be the final catalyst.
  6. There hasn’t been anything to post. Very little mentions of boycotts recently. Chances of any boycotts declining every day unless circumstances change.
  7. The Press here in the UK are speculating that China might invade Taiwan soon. I can’t see them doing it before the Olympics but if they do that would make boycotts much more likely.
  8. In July the House of Commons approved a motion that the games should be moved from Bejing. https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/2021-07-15/debates/E27E0D4E-5C70-4184-A044-E9B0103AF01F/BeijingWinterOlympicsAndChineseGovernmentSanctions?highlight=winter olympics#contribution-50AFBBFF-5ABC-44A3-9737-105A18897707
  9. The new UK, USA, Aus submarine deal is very reminiscent of the Cold War.
  10. It’s easy to tell that the majority of people in the west hate China for Covid and other issues. Polls have shown in Canada for example the majority want their country boycott the games.
  11. In terms of tensions between the west and China things are not that far of it. Particularly in terms of how the populations of the the likes of the USA think about China.
  12. https://www.tvbeurope.com/business/european-broadcasters-urged-to-pull-out-of-beijing-olympics https://abcnews4.com/news/nation-world/genocide-games-nbc-broadcasters-urged-to-boycott-beijing-olympics More calls for boycotts.

  14. Until they in China they could easily be pulled out by sponsors or countries wanting to boycott.
  15. It does feel like a lot of athletes are in denial as to how likely it is some governments will ban them from going.
  16. Looking more and more likely Canada will be absent from Bejing.
  17. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9921475/Muslim-footy-star-Sonny-Bill-Williams-slams-racist-fear-mongering-opposing-new-Sydney-mosque.html More important people call for a boycott.
  18. Feel like the Canadian election will eventually see them all pledge to consider a boycott.
  19. I wonder if that was also because he feared that some western countries might boycott a soviet hosted world cup. https://www.bignewsnetwork.com/news/270788872/chinese-british-fms-hold-phone-talks-over-afghanistan-bilateral-ties The BOA will decide independently if to compete or not.
  20. That was what Theresa May thought in 2017 and she ended up with a hung Parliament and her authority never recovererd.
  21. Except there is an election in September and on current polls it’s basically 50/50 as to who will form the new Govenment.

  23. And going by the results in the Nova Scotia regional election Erin O’Toole is favourite to win the election. I
  24. If Erin O’Toole is Canada’s Pm after next months elections how can the Canadian team realistically go when he has said he doesn’t think China is safe for the team to travel to?
