#1 To what extent is Australia's political class already beholden to the CCP?

Is China complaining publicly but actually expecting to benefit from this since nuclear sub technology will be transferred via Australia?

If the CCP's influence on Australia is negligible and the complaints are genuine; does the CCP expect Australia to acquire a nuclear deterrent?

#6 Now RT (ok, ok) is reporting tha France has recalled it's ambassadors from the US and Australia for 'consultations' about cancelling the sub contact. The butthurt is large; appearantly someone's bribe check isn't going to come through.
Or maybe the Aussies just heard about the french extended warranties.

Had an interesting experience, evening radio news, very pro Biden, was like, "This has been decades in the making." then went on to pronounce the French ambassador's name in an over accent which would make the voice actor for Pepe le Pew sound like HAL9000.

That is, this is not Biden's doing and its about time somebody cheesed off those testy French.
