That is more like it  .............  #54 and #55

A touch of sarcasm and a dollop of paranoia  ............   


Ah yes, the old touch of expatter even-handedness. When someone posts both views (foreign media & state Chinese media) it is decried as paranoia....

And this from the 'biased' BBC

"According to a posting on the social networking site Twitter by Liu Yanping, a volunteer at the artist's studio, almost 20,000 people have so far handed over money.

"These are tens of thousands of people bringing in the money," A i W e i w e i told the BBC.

"They all have one message: we're supporting you, we're behind you, we have to let the people know solidarity and we know what it is and we know the accusations are fake, they're unreal."

Mr Ai - who has sold artworks around the world - has admitted he does not need the money, and has vowed to pay people back later.

He says the donations are an expression of people's feelings about the way he has been treated.

One reader, from Guangzhou, told the BBC he had sent money because it was a "rare opportunity to support what I believe".

"I will keep my receipt of the postal order forever, because it is my first real vote," the reader wrote.

Another reader, from Nanjing, told the BBC the 100 yuan they had sent was "for the protection and de monstration of human rights of di s sidents"

I referenced it so that people could see it was an opinion from someone else  ..........

Not me  ..........

If you have an issue with it you should discuss your objection with me on a third party basis  ..........

Or contact the writer in the first person basis  ........


Not try and trash the post as if I were the author  .......
