Copyright Theft Punished

In an extraordinary move, for the first time ever, Liuzhou Intermediate People’s Court has found for a plaintiff in a copyright theft case. Liang Weibin, an amateur but enthusiastic photographer from Liuzhou, sued a local media company when they used four of his pictures without permission or compensation. He was awarded ¥2,800 and the offending […]

Motorcycle Crackdown

The above was a display which sat for a long time in what is now the lower stretch of Liuzhou city centre’s main pedestrian street (about opposite where the Starbucks is now). Clearly, it is a motorcycle road safety warning. Of course, it did nothing. Motorcycles remain utterly dangerous. Nearly every accident I have ever […]

Handstand Rabbit and Other News

Some of the more bizarre Liuzhou news items from yesterday: a) Handstand Rabbit This rabbit is in Liuzhou’s rancid excuse for a zoo.

Now it seems that Mr Liao has fled the country, along […]

Hu Ping, formerly of the public security bureau of Pingnan county, shot the woman and her husband in October of last year.

Beware of Beards

These crude, racist anti-terrorism posters have appeared in town. They show stereotypical images of wild-eyed, bushy-bearded males in the role of the terrorists – as they all surely are. There have never been any clean-shaven terrorists or female terrorists. And of course, they are too stupid to think of disguising themselves as non-terrorists by having […]

Terror Toys

In their latest display of cunning plans to prevent terrorism and mayhem on the pedestrian street in Liuzhou city centre, local police have bought themselves some very silly new toys. The electric self-balancing playground equipment will be used to save the poor cops’ shoe leather on daily patrols in the pedestrian area and on Longcheng Road. […]
