  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. The new UK, USA, Aus submarine deal is very reminiscent of the Cold War.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  8. Until they in China they could easily be pulled out by sponsors or countries wanting to boycott.
  9. It does feel like a lot of athletes are in denial as to how likely it is some governments will ban them from going.
  10. Looking more and more likely Canada will be absent from Bejing.
  11. 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.
  12. Feel like the Canadian election will eventually see them all pledge to consider a boycott.
  13. 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.
  14. That was what Theresa May thought in 2017 and she ended up with a hung Parliament and her authority never recovererd.
  15. Except there is an election in September and on current polls it’s basically 50/50 as to who will form the new Govenment.
  16. He last week called for Team Canada to withdraw from the games. So how do people think Canada will compete if it’s Prime Minster has said it’s not safe for the team to go to China.
  17. And going by the results in the Nova Scotia regional election Erin O’Toole is favourite to win the election. I
  18. 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?
  19. There is now a fairly decent chance the PM of Canada by the times the games starts will be someone who has outright called for athletes to boycott the games. I can’t see Canada being at the games.

  22. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/beijing-olympics-boycott-unlikely-canadian-political-parties-1.6139647 Not sure I agree with that.

  24. Let’s face if Canada boycotts America will as well. Biden is hardly likely to say he opposes Canada doing so and if he says he supports it but is powerless to enforce it that is a massive gift to Fox News.
