The chairman of Parliament’s joint committee on intelligence and security, Andrew Hastie, says Western nations must wage their own political warfare campaigns “to preserve peace and avoid war” and stop rival authoritarian states from undermining democracy.

“We have returned to an era of great power competition, even constant conflict,” he told Whitehall think tank the Royal United Services Institute.

“The challenge for us in the West is that the character of that competition, being conducted by authoritarian opponents, is attacking our way of life and our freedom in a manner that is remarkably difficult to defeat without undermining the very freedoms we seek to protect.”
