"The Chinese leaders are not stupid; quite the opposite in fact. They know that inflation, unaffordable housing, labor issues and corruption are huge problems that may ultimately threaten their rule.

But the Party has proven itself amazingly resilient over the last six decades, and most analysts underestimate its ability to adapt and neutralize both external and internal threats to its rule."

During the search, her mother Deidre Sharrock told The Courier-Mail how she feared her daughter had fallen foul of figures behind an illicit “ice” crime syndicate.
Her partner Heath Cassady reported her missing after they went to “chill out” at the site near Queensland’s highest peak Mt Bartle Frere on September 21. He said the pair had been on a drug and alcohol-fuelled “bender” in Mission Beach in the days before she disappeared.
He said they had argued and he had left his “tired and emotional” lover to walk down the creek to cool off. She followed him, went the wrong way, and ended up lost in dense rainforest.
