It’s no secret China is a bully, but the lengths it’s prepared to go to to assert its dominance sometimes border on farcical. Twelve months ago, we reported how the communist regime savaged a young Queensland university student. Drew Pavlou’s supposed crime was to organise a rally on his campus highlighting Beijing’s many human rights abuses. Instead of silencing him though, China’s attack did the exact opposite, making him an even louder critic. Now Drew’s taking his fight a step further – he’s started his own political party and is launching a bid for parliament.
