Now we see the big picture

Let's get the timeline in perspective:

January - Chinese virus takes hold in Wuhan (Many deaths, but a small sacrifice in things to come)
February to April - Virus escapes China to the western world, destroying jobs, companies and the economy in general of pretty much every western country, and by the way, kills over a million people.
April - Entire world's airlines sent to the brink of survival. Flights stopped. Aircraft grounded, pilots, CC and support staff stood down. No international flights for a year? The world grinds to a halt.
April - Virgin AustralIa on the brink of bankruptcy. But it's only the first to fall. We know there will be many others.
Arpril 17 - Three Chinese government-owned airlines emerge as the white knights to take over Virgin Australia, at rock bottom fire sale price. (The endgame comes into focus)

Well, my friends, do you see the picture here, the irony of how this pandemic plays out? Who suffers and who profits? Who started the mess and who will benefit from it? Who will lose and who will win? We understand that Australian Foreign Investment Review Board has expanded its powers to specifically prevent foreign (PC purists, please read "Chinese") take-over of undervalued Australian assets, as a result of COVID. It seems Virgin may slip under the radar. Let's hope that doesn't happen. Next thing, God forbid, we might lease our northern harbours to them. Those same harbours that re-supply military assets, in place to counter a threat from antagonists that we are afraid to name. Madness!

Our problem is that we're too PC. We've evolved. We don't kill live animals in wet markets, we don't eat bats and dogs, we do have a certain moral ethic. Anyway what's your view? This is no time to sit on the fence and hope that the problem just goes away - it won't. I'm afraid to say it's just starting.

I don't believe the Chinese released the virus BUT they might as will cash in on its effects for free whilst the fish are caught in the barrel!

I think the Chinese didn't release the virus deliberately. There can be little doubt this virus was released in China. By whom is open to debate, as the fact on whether it was deliberate or not.

One thing stands out for sure, and that is something that happened in a communist dictatorship has wrecked the economies of every Western country, and killed some 156,000 and counting as of 10:30 UTC today. That can only be of long-term benefit to that communist country in it's quest for world domination.

Seems like a convoluted plan when they could of just waited another 12 months for Virgin to go bankrupt of their own accord.

The rumour of possible Chinese interest is only that. Have a look who is carrying the story and who is not.

Forget about the sentiment of a plan to take V. The OP makes some valid points otherwise.

Yes Australia is way to PC, many have been saying it for years.

Will Covid19 actually wake the world up? Probably, but then it becomes all about money again.

Damned if you do damned if you don’t.

In a perfect world it would be nationals that own national interests, infrastructure and the likes. Hasn’t been this way for years.

So... What is the fix?

Rather than follow conspiracy, perhaps the maxim.........”you never let a serious crisis go to waste” ....is what inow should be thought by the many who who have the funding to do so.

VA was over valued and not worth the Australian government investing in it , now the Chinese government want to invest in it, its undervalued and we can’t let them steal it from under our noses ?

The aussies have been in hock to China for years, most of the national assets have already been bought up its only the small fry like Virgin that are left. The whole problem is that “lifestyle” is everything. They have been paying themselves more than they earned for many many years, other countries, the U.K. in particular are just a vulnerable to paying ourselves too much.
My real sympathy is with developing countries China is taking over whole economies, they don’t care who they deal with, any despotic regime or rebel group, payment in arms, or an offshore bank no problem. Drive through any town in Africa and count the Chinese run businesses displacing the locals, wake up!.
