Canada-China, CPAC Orban, Strategic Autonomy, Coronation security

Why hasn't Canada expelled the Chinese ambassador? Beijing's targeting of a parliamentarian's family for intimidation is requiring of swift rebuke.

At CPAC-Hungary, Viktor Orban shows his continuing sympathy for Beijing and Moscow. The prime minister appeals to social conservatives, but he is no U.S. security ally.

China uses Macron's 'strategic autonomy' narrative to warn neighbors against U.S. friendship. The French president has gifted Beijing with his appeasement strategy.

The coronation security operation is a very British mix of the serious and the surreal. Security threats are real, but so are the sillier sideshows surrounding the big day.
