For this edition, we couldn’t quite decide which one of the following deserved the top spot for blackwhite!
1. Recently, Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, delivered a passionate speech at the World Economic Forum. The blackwhite here deserves some sort of formal award.
‘We should build an open world economy, uphold the multilateral trading regime, discard discriminatory and exclusionary standards, rules and systems, and take down barriers to trade, investment and technological exchanges.
State-to-state relations should be coordinated and regulated through proper institutions and rules. The strong should not bully the weak. Decisions should not be made by simply showing off strong muscles or waving a big fist.’
2. Former president Donald Trump’s last few days at the White House were ‘very busy’. We have reprinted the formal notice of the President of the United States of America, on one of his busier days, 4 January 2021:
‘President Trump will work from early in the morning till late in the evening. He will make many calls and have many meetings. The President will depart the White House at 6:10 PM for a victory rally in Dalton, GA.’
President Trump was also busy on 6 January 2021.
3. On 1 February 2021, President of the Collingwood Football Club, Mr. Eddie McGuire discussed systemic racism within the club.
