The defections continue. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday (December 8th) a “diplomatic boycott” of the Beijing Olympic Winter Games, to which “no minister” in his government plans to surrender.
“There will indeed be a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics,” he said during the weekly parliamentary question-and-answer session, stressing that a sports boycott is “not the policy” of his government. .
The British decision comes after the announcement by the American administration of its “diplomatic boycott” in the name of the defense of human rights. Beijing retorted that “the United States will pay the price for its bad blow.”
Australia has also announced that it is joining the United States in the “diplomatic boycott” of these Olympics. “Nobody cares,” China retorted.
