Why has the PM suddenly changes his mind on the matter of local law and diplomatic missions, 5 months ago it was irrelevant because it got in the way of pushing his agenda, now the statement local law is irrelevant gets in the way of his rabid sinophobia it is no longer the case that local law does not apply in diplomatic missions, given the PM cannot have it both ways which of his creations runs contrary to international law?

Jammy Duel On the matter of a British Consulate-General in China, we follow Chinese rules.

On the matter of a Chinese Consulate in the UK, they should follow UK laws.

British Consulate General in Hong Kong allows gay marriage to be held despite being illegal in Hong Kong. In that instance UK law applies.

Chinese Consulate build a wall on their land. In that case Chinese law should apply.

Why are the two situation not similar?

Why are the two situation not similar?
1. China has allowed British diplomatic missions in China to perform same-sex marriage.

2. Same-sex marriage is not illegal to perform in China or Hong Kong. It just wouldn't be recognised.

3. Those marriage ceremonies would be held within the Consulate-General and not outside.

We have followed Chinese laws and regulations on that. And they should follow ours.

Yes, they are similar, and we have been consistent.

Depends on how many times you, or the President of the US, or the UK PM, or the UN, or any world leader brings it up.

What does the Prime Minister consider the value of a human life in pounds sterling to be?
It is a difficult question for me to answer, as that value changes from person to person, and different people care more about different people. But the Health Secretary has given me data from NICE (National Institute of Health Care & Excellence) set this value (QALY - Quality Adjusted Life Year), which is currently £30,000.

We should look into the causes for their failings. It is, however, not entirely unexpected that care homes were especially hit since this is a virus that´s known to kill the elderly more.

1. Investments need to be made in this country in order to revive the economy, and we should encourage people to buy British made goods and services, and for businesses to move to the UK for that.

2. The flu does not usually lead to the collapse of a healthcare system, so I wouldn´t worry too much about that. We will look into the capacity we experienced during the pandemic earlier this year, to see how many more hospital beds and medical equipment we will need for this coming winter.

3. Unemployment is an issue that will face all age groups, so of course our priority will be to revive the economy and create jobs. For young people, internships and on-the-job training may be especially useful to them.

Good afternoon
Seeing as this has brought to attention recently,
is there still time to ask about your views on peat bog restoration? They can hold a huge carbon store but of course it can be costly to reintroduce destroyed ones.
But do you think the benefits outweigh the costs that they could bring?
I understand this is extremely specific so I don’t mind waiting for you to analyse some data collections and such.
Thank you ever so kindly.

Generally, does the Prime Minister believe that social care is most effectively delivered by local authorities, a more centralised government operation, or the private sector?

That first of all depends on what you mean by "effective". Putting aside cost-effectiveness, you could mean effective as in allowing the wider society to develop better, or to give the people in their care a happier life, or to give them a healthier life, or to simply prolong their life (keep in mind they could very well be suffering through a longer life).

Regardless, I generally trust the private sector more as if they aren't delivering the services expected of the customers, they get hit immediately.

£8-22 billion over the next 100 years don't seem too bad, for an estimated benefit of £109 billion in savings.

MR. Prime Minister, do you support the punishment of small businesses and discrimination against Liverpool Football fans to gather who had not committed a crime but you so morally object?

also How many more times does the Prime Minister believe he will mention China and Hong Kong in the remainder of the term?

I don't understand your first question. I have never once commented on Liverpool football fans, their morals or otherwise.

As the Chinese Hong Kong government just decreed new laws that authorize the Hong Kong police (probably should call them the Intergalactic Police now) to seize assets from anywhere in the world, including the UK, and a Vice-Chairman of the Standing Committee of the People's Congress specifically named the President of the US and Prime Minister of the UK to not be immune from the national security law (which applies to the entire human race in the whole world), I suspect there will be more to say on both China and Hong Kong in the future, unfortunately.

There are a handful of domestic issues regarding China in the UK as well, such as the non-adoption of Huawei for the British 5G network, which China is aggressively attacking the UK for doing so, visa policies in the UK, which China is grossly interfering, the functioning of British businesses, which China is threatening. This is without mentioning the recent revelation from the World Health Organization that China didn't notify the WHO of the coronavirus until the WHO inquired about it, following the gathering of their own data.

Your lack of willingness to deal with both national and international issues that concern the most populous country, second-largest economy in the world is a reason why you should not be in government.
