    For yourself or for the right-wing in general? It'll be funny to see a right-wing government form if mobbsy is forced to bring you into coalition. :laugh: You could always cause an upset and refuse.

    For myself, could hinder the pseudo right in the process, and I would refuse without major concessions, they all know I will broadly vote in line with them anyway

    Highly debatable. By some measures, China is already considered the world's largest economy. According to a report released last year by the International Monetary Fund that compared international economies by adjusting for exchange rates and purchasing power, China's economy had already surpassed America's as the world's largest

    They are definitely the largest military superpower, although China has recently embarked upon heavy military spending and has the largest standing army in the world, and Russia is quickly catching up to the US with advances in technology, increasingly large nay etc.

    Do you think it's a good thing that China (not really with Russia tbh) might eclipse the US militarily?

    Not sure, but China hasn't waded in on half a dozen wars in the last half-century.

    Probably because they don't have the global influence or power the US does. Nor can they afford to get into a confrontation with the western world

    Let's hope this poll is as accurate as the US Election one.

    Turnout is down on the last election. Time for another attempt at reintroducing the mass PM methinks, once this is all over.

    They also haven't the idiocy to throw themselves into every conflict that erupts in the Middle East and Africa.
    Apart from Vietnam.
    And Mali.
    And Pakistan.

    But that's really only 5 conflicts, three of which were in the 70s-80s and the latest two in the past couple of years which they were pulled into.

    Maybe not but, as Wellzi says, they weren't in a position to. Should we have faith in the one-party state that's somehow becoming more centralised and more autocratic? A state that's outlook appears to be expansionist and with which we share far fewer ties? I'm not so sure.

    Because they didn't have interests in their oil reserves.
