“Dirty” China got Solomon’s deal “almost certainly” with bribes: Bolt

According to Sky News host Andrew Bolt, China has signed its security deal with the Solomon Islands “almost certainly” thanks to bribes.

Bolt said Australia is too small a country to have been able to stop China as it is becoming very powerful.

“America couldn’t stop this deal with China, New Zealand couldn’t stop it – the Morrison government couldn’t stop it,” he said.

“You see, we actually give a lot more aid to the Solomons than all other countries combined, but China is playing dirty.

“He puts his money in the pockets of politicians – and that money talks.”
