Bret Stephens was recently in Australia to give a speach to the Lowy Institute and took the opportunity to write a bit about his visit to Australia. The following paragraph caught the eye:
Australia’s scandal of the year concerns two Chinese-born property developers, both allegedly connected to the Chinese Communist party, who funneled more than $6 million dollars to Australian politicians of various parties. Senator Sam Dastyari, a rising star in the Australian Labor Party, was accused last year of mouthing the pro-Beijing line on the South China Sea dispute for fear of losing a six-figure donation.
There you go Senator Sam. Your name in lights. Your’s and the Labor Party’s.
It’s a good thing that the US is not a key defense and security ally of Australia. Oh wait.
