The fact that there appears to have been no censorship. Coupled with the timing, just as the NPC CPPCC meeting opens and the environment is on the agenda. To me suggest that the launch of the video may have been stage managed. Perhaps as a litmus test to public reaction/support for major changes in the way the environment is managed.

Because if there is a major shift it could possibly have a big economic impact that would affect the people who have become accustomed to economic growth (suggested by some pundits as major mandate for the political status quo).

I don't think it is a case about western media promoting this video. The sheer number of hits and public response in China IS newsworthy.

If you think there is no precedent for step changes in policy that shake up the system, you just need to look at the 'tigers and flies' campaign that everyone thought would be merely cosmetic. 100 000 and counting.

The Hunting Act 2004 is nothing to do with hunting with guns.
It is about hunting mammals with dogs. Hunting with dogs means that the dogs chase the hunted animal until either it escapes, or the pack of dogs catches it and kills it. If you have ever seen pack animals kill prey, you will understand why the law was passed.

The law has nothing to do with protecting foxes. Foxes, rabbits, deer, and some other mammals' populations need to be controlled. Shooting is a more humane way of killing them.



A reasonable choice of lumber that has improved over time. Fancy hardwoods like walnut, and mahogany are in abundance. There are some plywood and rubber-wood boards available. There are also some kiln dried imported softwoods and merbao available. Some of the lumber is very green, so look for the kiln dried if you need stable timbers.


Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.
