Late Appointment

South China Modern Times 南国今报 December 20th 2012

Every newspaper in Guangxi has been ordered to has decided to feature the same pictures on the front page today. The main picture is of Guangxi’s new Party Secretary shaking hands with the old one in some sort of happy handover.

According to the accompanying story (also the same in every newspaper), a meeting was held in Nanning yesterday to appoint Peng Qinghua (彭清华) to the post.

This will come as a surprise to regular readers. I posted about the appointment three days ago.

Of course, I don’t need to sit around sleeping in meetings for three days before announcing anything. Or I’m just psychic.

The story (in all newspapers) then lists Mr Peng’s glorious achievements such as pissing off the entire population of Hong Kong such as fostering excellent relations between Hong Kong and the Party in Beijing.

Welcome to Guangxi.
