The One Belt One Road or the Silk Road initiative is a huge Chinese attempt to gain influence in world affairs and it looks like we have a group of inexperienced Finns have been fooled into thinking that they can sell a bridge to unsuspecting investors, governments and taxpayers.
Let’s be absolutely clear, no company in this world will enter into such a huge and risky contract without solid guarantees from our government to cover the costs and the risks of such a project.
During the last 60 years, there are no projects of such huge size and such huge risks that have ever been undertaken by any private company without such guarantees, and the Chinese are not about to set a whole new way of doing business with us now.
Just take a peek at the Touchstone Capital Partners website. It reveals so much about who these young men are dealing with.
The website tells us very little about the group in some unintelligible form of English. It is fine if inexperienced people want to waste their time and money, but they have no right to waste taxpayers’ money on such futile projects.
Here is a “paste and copy” of some of the text from the Touchstone website http://www.touchstonecapitalpartners.com which is basically an unintelligible miss-mash ungrammatical Double Dutch.
It does not exactly look like any company that can offer €15 billion just like that!
