Iain Duncan Smith has told TalkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer that he is ashamed of the West for failing to get tough on China.

The Conservative politician described the rise of China as a “deep distinctive threat to the way we live our lives.” He added that attempting to ignore the danger China poses was “cloud cuckoo land.”

“Because we have done nothing absolutely nothing but vague protest, very little indeed.

“China is a deep distinctive threat to the way we live our lives.

“Secondly you have got to understand that it is in fact the free world that has created this incredible leviathan China economically in a place that the Soviet Union could only ever have looked at and wondered.

“And it is the result of all of that is no rebounding back on us because that naivety of approach to China’s deep-rooted ambitions is where the real problem arises.”
