Conservative heavyweight and former Brexit Minister Davis Davis warned the West must react to Chinese escalation in Taiwan after Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the sovereign country. Her visit has sparked ffury among Chinese officials who said the US “violated China’s sovereignty” with Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Upping the ante in Taiwan, Chinese military are about to conduct live-fire exercises surrounding Taiwan between Thursday and Sunday. 

Speaking to Sky News, Ms Davis warned: “For the 1930s, we turned a blind eye to all sort of actions – Sudetenland and so on by Hitler.

“And if we do that with China, they will keep pushing and pushing and pushing until the point where you have to say stop.

“Better now when it’s sabre-rattling but not actual action than later.”

“If we back down now, that will reward belligerent behaviour. The lesson down the centuries is you mustn’t award belligerent behaviour.”
