Li: Hello, long time no see! I'm so very glad to see you,
my heart flower angrily open.
Hello master, I'm ready to
Cameron: How do you do? Are you coming to see me?
Li: Actually, I come to talk to someone in a deformed man
Cameron: Are you sure?
Li: I'm so very sure, because the toilet floor is crafty
and fall down carefully.
Cameron: So you're sure he's in my office toilet?
Li: I'm too sure le. When old man's child go up hand ladder
temporarily need the family to accompany.
Cameron: Good lord, from where did you learn this hilarious
Li: From my home. I speak English with my old po and female
son all the time. We no speak Chinese.
Li's old po and female son: How do you do, sir!
Cameron: Oh, how do you do, ladies. But, are you really,
I mean, when you speak to each other?
Li: We are really.
Li's old po: Not just at home, sir. He once told Chinese
government officials when he was Henan Governor: don't let
me ever hear you peak Chinese in Chinese government office
or you'll be fired.
Cameron: Sorry, I don't quite follow.
Li: Bu huan yuyan jiu huan ren.
Cameron: I beg your pardon.
Li's female son: He said if a Chinese official speaks Chinese,
he shouldn't work in Chinese government; If Chinese people
speak no English, they shouldn't live in China. Because China
only belongs to those who speak English.
Cameron: Aha, now I've got. My ancestors told you people
about this long time ago in the Opium War. But they refused
to listen. Now, will they listen to you guys this time?
Li: I not know, try try see.

China's state media, now largely
controlled by the Wall Street, yesterday promoted Li Keqiang
as a capable premier for being able to speak no Chinese
but English only at home with his wife and daughter. It
also claims that the people in Liaoning Province, where
Li worked, once all loved to say "if you want to improve
your living condition now, go find Li Keqiang."
However the residents in Shengyang
strongly disputed the claim and insisted that it was never
Here is one of the typical online responses:
a Shengyang native, I have to say that I never heard anyone
ever said anything remotely close to that expression. We
people in Shengyang wouldn't get that low.)
are some responses on Li Keqiang's English-speaking only
rather annoying to see some guys who can hardly speak their
own native language property yet love to spice their broken
Chinese with a few English words to make the whole sentence
read like a ragged clothing full of lousy patches.)
about we get a proper American to be our premier, surely
his English will be much authentic than Li Keqiang's Chinglish
twisted by his Anhui
李北方: 跟老婆孩子拿英语说话，是很2b的. (I
can't think anything that is more pathetic than a native
Chinese man in China speaking English with his wife and daughter
all the time.)
tragedy is this pathetic idiot has become the head of Chinese
wonder he would travel to Hong Kong to make a English speech
to Chinese there -- he's just a compulsive exhibitionist.)
he really Chinese premier?) [Of
course not, otherwise with his ability he would never get
a chance to be even a vice premier. - Multipletext]
have an even bigger foreign collaborator heading the government
than the previous one. It's not going to be a good thing.
Now I know why he dares to destroy China's railway and farmland
right away. [Li Keqiang's name
has the same pronunciation in Chinese as a phrase
"rob you now"])

known in China as a man directly reported to the US controlled

is a village in Henan Province in which entire villagers
contracted AIDS as the consequence of selling their blood
in exchange for some cash for buying food, clothing and paying
medical bills. Instead of providing help to the victims,
the provincial authority prohibited the incident to be reported
to Beijing and denied medical treatment and financial assistance
to the poverty-stricken patients. And the head of the Provincial
government at the time is no other but Li Keqiang. Therefore
Li Keqiang's hands are not only full of blood of his strong
competitor Bo Xilai, but tens of thousands of AIDS sufferers
in China's rural areas. - Multipletext.])
no Chinese media ever mentions about the AIDS villages?)
tells a lot about new premier's political stance and cultural
preference - it is a typical slavery mentality of a conquered
people. When we have this guy as premier, whose interest
do you expect him to serve?) [His
foreign master of course!]
