WAS THERE EVER SUCH A SIGN IN SHANGHAI?

Update: Apparently this picture is a fake. And commenters are telling me no such signs ever existed in China. Just another myth?

A source: This sign was put up during the colonial days of Singapore. At the entrance of Singapore Cricket Club.

Did it ever exist? The answer was NOT important to the makers of this Bruce Lee film. They assumed it did.

No dogs and Chinese allowed. Seriously.

Anti-China sentiment spreads along with coronavirus

Stanley WidiantoKhanh VU

JAKARTA/HANOI (Reuters) – The coronavirus outbreak has stoked a wave of anti-China sentiment around the globe, from shops barring entry to Chinese tourists, online vitriol mocking the country’s exotic meat trade and surprise health checks on foreign workers.

The virus, which originated in China, has spread to more than a dozen countries, many of them in Southeast Asia which has sensitive relations with China amid concerns about Beijing’s vast infrastructure spending and political clout in the region and sovereignty disputes in the South China Sea.

Authorities and schools in Toronto, Canada, were moved to warn against discrimination towards Chinese Canadians, while in Europe there was anecdotal evidence of Chinese residents facing prejudice in the street, and hostile newspaper headlines.

“Orientalist assumptions plus political distrust plus health concerns are a pretty powerful combination,” said Charlotte Setijadi, and anthropologist who teaches at Singapore Management University.

Chinese authorities have said the virus emerged from a market selling illegally traded wildlife, giving rise to widespread social media mocking of China’s demand for exotic delicacies and ingredients for traditional medicine.

“Stop eating bats,” said one Twitter user in Thailand, the top destination for Chinese tourists. “Not surprising that the Chinese are making new diseases,” another Thai user posted alongside a video clip that showed a man eating raw meat.

“Because your country is beginning (to) spread disease…we do not accept to serve the guest from China,” read a sign in English outside the Danang Riverside hotel in the central Vietnamese city of the same name. Authorities later told the hotel to remove the sign, its manager said in a Facebook post.

Vietnam, which was under Chinese occupation centuries ago and contests Beijing’s sweeping maritime claims in the South China Sea, has particularly fraught relations with China.

But it is not alone in the region.

Over 60% of respondents to a poll of Southeast Asian officials, academics and other professionals said in a survey this month that they distrusted China. Nearly 40% said they thought China was “a revisionist power and intends to turn Southeast Asia into its sphere of influence”. The survey did not mention the virus.

The Chinese government said it was determined to contain an epidemic it called a “common challenge facing mankind”.

“Prejudice and narrow-minded words are no good at all,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

TRAVEL BANS

Many countries have imposed visa restrictions on travellers from Hubei province – the epicentre of the virus – while some airlines have suspended all direct flights to mainland China.

But this is not enough for hundreds of thousands of people in South Korea and Malaysia who have signed online petitions urging authorities to ban Chinese from visiting their countries.

Trimp has banned any Huawei presence in the US federal telecoms network.

..

Excerpts from:

Why was Trump all smiles and warm words with UK over Huawei and 5G?

Asked at a joint press conference with Theresa May whether he would limit the flow of US secrets to Britain over its position on the Chinese firm, Mr Trump said: “No, because we are going to have absolutely an agreement on Huawei and everything else… we have an incredible intelligence relationship and we will be able to work out any differences.”

It’s a declaration that only makes sense if the UK’s position on Huawei has shifted to match the US “ditch-now” stance or if the president has decided he is fine with Britain exploring the possibility of giving the Chinese firm access to “non-core” elements of its 5G networks.

The latter scenario seems highly unlikely given the hard line Mr Trump is taking on China.

He has banned any Huawei presence in the US federal telecoms network.

His security adviser, John Bolton, told journalists ahead of the state visit that Washington was prepared to take “zero risk” on this matter.

Fundamentally, no final decision has yet been taken by Britain on its relationship with Huawei and 5G.
.
Mrs May had appeared to be in favour of a mid-way stance that kept Huawei out of Britain’s core 5G network but allowed it access to other areas.

But this was a position that has caused concern within US circles even though Mr Trump made no public mention of it.

Frontrunners in the Tory leadership race have signalled an approach more in line with the US way of thinking – which would mean saying no to Huawei on any aspect of 5G.
