And they are wrong almost every single time. Never heard any of them say unification is inevitable anyways.

I don’t think they are paid to predict the future. But to give plausible deniability when military actions/sanctions/etc damage a region. Particularly when it comes to the intelligence firms. There is big money in that line of work. And those guys do make predictions about territorial take-overs.

Even with Korean Fish running in the last election the pan-blues (Han Kuo-yu plus James Soong ) got 78% of the vote in Kinmen; in 2016 it was 81%; in 2012 92%.
Possibly the old man’s opinion is more representative of popular feeling in Kinmen than that of a Taiwan-independence supporter in Taiwan proper.

It used to be left, but then it became progressive. It’s basically all comment now about how horrid white men are.

I’m very surprised they’ve managed to survive this long without a paywall. Katherine Viner appears to have pulled off living off handouts from readers, but I don’t think that will continue.

They’re getting increasingly naggy about paying some cash to them.

Every time I read one of their articles they remind me about how many times I have read for free.

They have a very loyal readership, but I can’t see their “price of a coffee” business model lasting much longer. It’s the sort of business model the terribly nice people at Grauniad towers would love, but it’s pie in the sky.

I actually don’t know what I’d read if I didn’t read the G. It’s a helluva lot better than the rubbish coming out of Kiwiland.
