Hiring as EU foreign policy advisor, while sitting on oil & gas giant 's board, is yet another example of vested oil-interests infiltrating the EU democratic process. We call on to annul her contract

I think article could've been improved by clarifying that (1) China approved the team members off a list from WHO, and (2) Phase I (analysis of index cases, market) "will be led by Chinese scientists, with outsiders reviewing their work remotely"

Obviously this will not be happening. The EU leaders never really stood up for Sweden or Czechia when pressured (which are the EU members) or Canada (a NATO member): and that was on far less politically expensive stuff than a direct economic attack which Australia now faces.

THREAD: WHAT SHOULD THE EU DO WHEN CHINA BULLIES AUSTRALIA? If the EU ever had balls, it would impose the very same tariffs on Chinese goods and it would tell China directly: if you try to squeeze one of us (a fellow democracy), you will face all of us.

Položil jsem vicepremiérovi Havlíčkovi jednoduchou otázku: Kdy sdělíte ČEZu, že do výběrového řízení na jádro nemá zvát účastníky ze zemí, které ohrožují bezpečnost Česka?

The challenge for Washington is that it has been unable to deliver a clear message of the sort that gave it a critical advantage over the Soviets — that liberty equals prosperity.

WHERE THE NEW EU COUNTER-DISINFORMATION POLICY FAILS:

 1) There are no sanctions or cost-imposing mechanisms on hostile organisers of disinformation. Only an indication that we might have it in the future. That is very weak, no action.

3) SYMBOLIC, BUT GOOD: More safety and legal help for journalists under pressure. 

 4) THE COMMISSION SAYS SOCIAL MEDIA ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH: So there is a new “co-regulatory backstop” - a new guidebook for platforms like Facebook or Twitter.

2) THE MAIN MINDSET SHIFT: The EU will develop new sanctions for “imposing costs on perpetrators” of disinformation. That’s good. The problem is that the EU should have done this five years ago. It’s good that it plans to work on it, but until further no action now.

WHAT IS GOOD ON THE NEW EU COUNTER-DISINFORMATION POLICY: 

1) THE OBVIOUS: The Commission names Russia and China again as hostile actors - for “targeted influence operations and disinformation campaigns around COVID‑19”.

EU COUNTER-DISINFORMATION POLICY: WHAT HAS BEEN BAD:

 So far, EU institutions have avoided putting real pressure on the organisers of disinformation (Russia and China), instead, a technical approach was taken to force social media to be more transparent.

CONTEXT: So far, the EU has been very weak in responding to hostile disinformation. There is a small EEAS team with some 15 experts with only 2 specialists on Chinese disinformation. They lack a multi-year budget.

WHERE THE NEW EU COUNTER-DISINFORMATION POLICY FAILS:

 

3) EU institutions lack real coordination on disinformation. It is mentioned but no decision has been taken, no clear mandate for any of the EU institutions.

WHERE THE NEW EU COUNTER-DISINFORMATION POLICY FAILS:

 4) Often, the EU promises something and it does not happen. New resources for EEAS were promised in the 2018 Action Plan on Disinformation, not much happened.
