A general election won't break the Brexit deadlock

Brexit has been changed from whether it should divorce the EU to a question of whether it has the political ability to find a way out of the maze.

Taiwan should learn from island nations' snub

For the moment, it seems that the Tsai authorities have not learned any lesson from it, still sticking to “Taiwan independence” and “dollar diplomacy.” However, against the increasingly obvious comparison in strength between China and the US and between Taiwan and the mainland, there might be a day when Taiwan loses all its “diplomatic allies” if it refuses to change.
