Countries that prosper by loot and plunder cannot be considered honest.

You are the one claiming that. In reality they speak several languages, such as Cantonese, Wu, Yue, Tibetian and Mongolian.

Putonghua is a form of Mandarin Chinese, an official spoken language in China and the majority language in China.

You are now making things up for me, I said nothing of the sort.

You state Putonghua is a form of Mandarin Chinese, what rot, Mandarin is a western term rarely used in China.

You claimed Chinese people speak mandarin with a lower case m, that is a fruit, not a language. Mandarin, with an upper case M is what western nations call Putonghua, the official language of China based on the Beijing dialect but pure Putonghua is spoken by few as pronunciation and some words vary throughout China, an experianced China hand can place a persons origin by their accent. Even a small country like the UK has major variations in the language, maybe as a speaker of such a little know language such as Finnish you fail to see these nuances.

Your language list missed out on many major dialects, as you claim to have a lot of Shanghai experiance how could you miss out on the hard to learn Shanghainese? Or as you once said you have many workers from Anhui why forget the Anhui dialect where everyone sounds like they are arguing?

If everyone spoke perfect Putonghua in China why would so many tv programmes have subtitles?

Shanghai people speak Shanghainese which is a dialect of Wu language. It seems Robert is right. You have never been to China, at least not in Shanghai.

"besides Chinese people do not speak Mandarin, they speak Putonghua with regional accents."

Cantonese, Wu, Yue, Tibetian, Mongolian etc are not regional accents they are different languages.
