I've absolutely no qualms in saying China man-made/created Covid-19. People will disagree, but it will secure their place at the top of world trade if the rest of the world is so far behind playing catch up! Now this!

For me it's not so much as disagreeing, it's more not using a 'reckon' as a fact.

They built an entire 1000 bed hospital from nothing to finished, faster than we managed to put 1000 beds in the NEC ffs! Tell me that wasnt planned?within 3 months, the market that apparently started it was trading again. 4 months down the line here, and I'm still on Furlough!

We’re governed by the biggest shower of fuck ups ever elected to government. It’s hardly surprising that the Chinese out performed us. Other Asian countries also. They learned the lessons from SARS and had contingency plans already in place. We did the exercises, had the enquires, did the studies and then ignored the findings and didn’t carry out any of the recommendations, most of the PPE in storage for such an event was put there by the last labour government and had been allowed to either go out of date or not replaced when the standard changed, we initially scrapped track and trace, then give it to fuckwits mates to fuck up before going for something of the shelf, we didn’t use them hospitals to full effect instead choosing to send patients back to care homes to spread the disease amongst the most vulnerable, we failed to take advantage of being an island nation and close the borders until the horse had bolted, we’ve failed miserably on testing, we locked down way too late even though we had two weeks notice, in that period when we should have been in lockdown we allowed events and festivals go ahead while other countries were cancelling national holidays, our lockdown was lame compared to countries who have faired better etc etc. You can buy into conspiracy theories all you like but the true crime from a U.K. perspective is the governments handling of this crisis.

No end of countries have secured PPE, closed their borders and got track and trace up and running while we were too busy dithering, protecting Cummings and handing out contracts to people unfit to carry them out.
All it proves is our government is useless.

There is a wealth of evidence to back up the claim of the OP regarding Chinese cyber crime though. Not just Australia affected.
Yet we were prepared to hand a huge contract to Huawei.

Almost like oppressive but efficient authoritarian regimes are better suited to mass population control and large projects than liberal regimes run by idiots in their first proper job...

Nah, must be a conspiracy.

They've got pretty much total authoritarian control of the people. You do as you're told. Here we can protest and are allowed more enquiring and questioning minds.

Plus they don't give a fuck about H&S, Human Rights etc. It's get stuff done and fuck the people that have to put themselves in harm's way to do it. Even if they killed millions with their strategy they're going to stay in charge.

Not just China. Plenty of evidence that Russia are doing the same. Now if only some sort of report could be released from an investigation into Russian meddling.

I say bin it,fuck it off.
By the time we've got it sussed and operational 6G will be on the horizon .
If this country is going to be Sovereign and not bending to anyone, because you're wolfe or my saviour and vice versa means taking the knee, tugging the proverbial forelock.
Build our own 6G and not waste time or money on obselescence.
Conspiracies
Which country is doing it's best to destabilise the EU ,which country needs to reign in China's dominance .
Which countries currency is fucked and no longer the prevailant currency of choice for trade?
There's a decent conspiracy.

Whilst I don't believe the Chinese unleashed Covid19 on purpose, I am more than a little shocked at the lack of scrutiny keeping in mind all the following are cold hard facts:

Wuhan houses only 1 of a handful top security bio-labs on the planet. Its chinas 1st ever BSL-4 grade lab.
The Wuhan lab is a centre for virology specializing in virus from bats.
The Wuhan labs main area of study is around coronaviruses.
The Covid19 strain originates in Wuhan.
The Chinese state have a track record as long as Mr. Tickles arm when it comes to suppression of the truth.

...so you can certainly see where the conspiracies come from.......


EDIT: Shall I move this to the covid thread?

We still have a failing test system and failing track and trace 7 months on. It’s not difficult to see why they get things done quicker than us.

So what exactly are these cyber attacks on Australia? What are they supposed to have done?
