Victoria Ties Itself To Chinese Dictatorship

Frightening. Tying ourselves to a tyranny which is already bullying us:

Victoria is locked in critical final-stage negotiations with Beijing over investments worth billions of dollars at the same time as its Treasurer has savaged the Morrison government’s “vilification” of China over trade and the COVID-19 pandemic...Under Victoria’s decision to sign-up to China’s Belt and Road Initiative — in defiance of federal government security advice — key investment details are meant to be signed by the middle of 2020 following completion of a draft road map in March.The looming deadline emerged as the Andrews government dodged parliamentary questions on Wednesday about whether any of the state’s $24bn coronavirus rescue package would be borrowed from China... On Wednesday, (following question from Richard Riordan MP), Transport Infrastructure Minister Jacinta Allan repeatedly refused to answer questions about whether up to $24.5bn the Andrews government intends to borrow to deal with the coronavirus pandemic will be sought from China through the Belt and Road agreement.

Why is democratic Victoria pledging itself to help an aggressive dictatorship? From the agreement:
