You will find reading the Party mouthpieces distressing, for sure. But that doesn't mean all Chinese buy into it. In fact, I'd go so far as to say most people that do read such drivel take it with a grain of salt.

CCTV is a laughing stock among the Chinese - and the Global Times, Xinhua, et al, are written by Party suck-ups. Not many Chinese are willing to stand up to their government for fear of imprisonment. That's the truly sad state of affairs here. And it very well could get worse before it gets better.

Posted in: China less attractive to Japanese firms - but not because of riots See in context

Inflation in China is less than 2%.

No, it is not. Where did you get a number like that? Government reported statistics here - in China - are notoriously unreliable.

Things in shops have stabilised recently, but prices across the board have gone up - especially earlier in the year. They will go up again at year-end and especially for the Chinese New Year.

Rents are out of control, possibly because people can't afford to buy into the housing bubble. Wages are most definitely going up.

Those are my on-the-street observations.

A little unsurprising that the protesters are not damaging, overturning or burning the official fleet of Nissan military vehicles~

Do you see any good in countries where tax is 20% or more? Do you see a prosperous country with a high tax? If so, let me know I see Spain has a high tax Canada has a high tax

Canada's a bad country?

what kind of idiot in CCP would consider war as an option for their growth?

It's been used as a tactic for economic growth in other countries. Why wouldn't China use it?

How can anyone respect a state that uses the death penalty? If death is so wrong, the state should have no business killing people.

Say what? Terrorists running rampant in Pakistan? Hard to believe.

I'm sure things will calm down after the Chinese start paying off & buying out this sad country. Oh, wait~ Did China just blame Pakistani terrorist-training camps for their latest terrorist incursions in Kashgar?

Looks like the US and China have a big arm-wrestling match coming up in Pakistan.

Shows the government has no respect for the peoples of the former Ryukyu Kingdom.

Which government, YuriO?

The Chinese government has plenty of respect for the islands Ryukyu Kingdom. Japanese "respect" towards the American occupiers of Okinawa is what happens when you lose a war. Time will tell.

Posted in: China high-speed train crash fuels safety concerns See in context

Once the wreckage is buried all mention of the crash will be banned, web sites will be censored and it will be as if it never happened: until the next crash.

That likely would have happened before Weibo (twitter) but it seems the government can't - or won't - kill the story completely. The Railway Ministry is taking the heat for this. Sure, they could just shut Weibo down, but that would seriously harm the government.

Pukey2, try "Canadian" eh~

The Chinese have been trying to sell "its" HSR technology without any regard to foreign contribution toward its development. Sure, it's a false claim and their disregard for IPR should be challenged in every jurisdiction.

My bigger point is that those, like Wang, who were so proudly claiming China's railway technology is better than Japan's are now backtracking.

digiridoo, there's supposed to be one, but clearly it failed. Last month China's Railway Ministry said their anti-collision system could stop a train running at top speed in under a minute.

I don't believe all the facts are in that caused the accident but I'm sure an investigation is on going.

I don't think they intend to perform a proper investigation. They've already buried 4 of the most damaged carriages! Less than 24-hours after the accident. The C-gov is too busy, literally, covering up the real story.

A few weeks ago it was claimed by Wang Yongping that no Japanese technology was used in Chinese HSR. Today, it's being said the trains involved are Japanese J/V trains.
