    Strange, this wasn’t in the China Daily! Does that. Mean it NEVER HAPPENED and that anyone speaking of it is an IMPERIALIST RUNNING DOG who is JEALOUS OF CHINA’S RISE and clearly attempting to DESTABLISE THE PARTY?

    Or are they just buying news because it’s the Olympics? Front page of the CD has been all “Oh, look at how many golds we got, LOL!” these last few days, but now that America has surpassed them in the medal tally, it’s like the Olympics is over.
