The Chinese really are coming

Since 2005, Breaking the Code of History has predicted the rise of Chinese economic power that would directly compete with the American empire. The nature of the competition would be economic and would then be followed by resource competition and a simultaneous Chinese military expansion that would inevitably result in the rise of Chinese blue water naval capabilities to challenge the USN and its allies.

Countering the Islamic insurgency within Britain Part I: Active measures

Prime Minister May’s comment "Enough is enough" is so terribly English, but also long overdue. Indeed, her subsequent comment that she is prepared to compromise human rights to prevent terrorism demonstrates her intention and the reality that we are facing an insurgency within Britain, the like of which we have not seen since the IRA. The PM, her government and the population need to be galvanised into action to counter this situation constructively and with unity.

The Solent Geopolitical Briefings

David will be offering a series of summer geopolitical briefings aboard Cetewayo over the duration of a day, aimed at senior managers and officers in businesses and politics. The day is designed to highlight key political and economic risks that are critical for the survival of many businesses and that will need to be navigated in the years ahead.


Trump's perspective on climate change today

Years ago, it was China who refused to recognise climate change, because it believed that to do so would inhibit its industrial grow and completion with America. Then, at a critical point, China ratified the Kyoto Protocol as a Non-Annex Party to the Convention on Climate Change, in which status it was not required to limit greenhouse gas emissions under terms of the agreement. The reason was because China felt that in time it would win its challenge against America and asked the question as to what sort of world it would inherit.

South Africa; the wrongful persecution of Helen Zille

Whilst continuing to believe that the Democratic Alliance (DA) will win the 2019 election, there is one area that is a weak spot for the party.

Lessons from the 2017 UK election Part II: Navigating Britain out of this mess

We, as individuals and nations learn the most from our mistakes. Especially, from the painful ones! So, the first step for the Conservatives is to take a deep breath and digest the lessons from the election, before choosing the path forward (see yesterday's Murrination). In that regard, the Conservatives are correct in keeping May as the PM and falling in behind her for a short time at least.

Lessons from the 2017 UK election Part I

After such a calamitous election result, it is time to take stock and analyse the lessons; lessons that should provide a guide as to how Britain can navigate its path through what could be a challenging but ultimately, very positive journey. However, before we do that, it is time to review our Breaking the Code of History (BTCH) predictions for UK politics going into the polls and most importantly, which key lessons can be learned from our failed expectations:

America concentrates its forces against North Korea

We previously noted that as part of America’s force build up in preparation for a pre-emptive strike against North Korea, the Americans would concentrate at least three carrier groups in the area. With the USS Carl Vinson already in the region and the USS Ronald Reagan stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, the last carrier group the USS Nimitz is undergoing a 'final pre-deployment assessment' off Oregon.

Brexit Part XXVIII: May's wobble

The closure of the difference between the polls of the Conservatives and Labour has caused great consternation to those who thought it would be a landslide victory. However, the reason is very simple. May has tried to follow the path of Blair and Cameron in occupying the centre ground when the vast majority of the electorate requires a move to the right with the associated wealth creation policies.
