    The Chinese system is fundamentally different from Western political systems.

    In China, leaders are appointed by a small group of people. You know about this better than I do, so I won't expand on this.

    In the West, leaders are elected by the population. Therefore, they need to appeal to people, they need to persuade them they are the right choice.

    You don't charm people by citing scientific formulae. You need eloquence and debating skills.

    The skills needed by a politician in the West tend to be more linked to the humanities than to sciences.

    In China, it seems to be the contrary.

    nah they just need to know how to blag shamelessly, vehemently refusing to take action to rectify mistakes which they blatantly started.

    eg blair and labour with his WMD allegations

    And of course the other obvious difference is that Chinese leaders have slanty eyes.

    Really? The Chinese Communist Party has run China since 1948. Take a look at the number who died because of their policies. At the moment they appear to be behaving in a fairly sensible and not very murderous way, but they could change their policies for entirely internal reasons at any time and start putting many more people in death camps or starving millions to death.

    Yes thats why I wrote should. If they continue acting in a benevolent way then they have a perfect system of government for China but otherwise...

    That's the situation about decades ago ,you see China' political policy and it regime revolution have improved a lot these years,you shouldn't always talk about others mistakes which is a long time ago.

    So they're all quietly sitting back, sipping their Green Tea and waiting for 2010? Also, I think your geography needs work, there's no such thing as the 'European Island', then again, experts believe, that if present trends continue, by 2009 the Chinese education system will begin teaching you such subtle distinctions, that being prior to the all important 2010. Maybe that’s what’s holding them back, the lack of a geography class in mainstream education.

    I’m a Martian looking to establish close ties with the ruling clan of your planet. I shall deceive them into thinking that I’ve come in friendship, and reveal my true intentions only once I know the security weaknesses of your planet. In this endeavour I first visited China, as sources had led me to believe the country carried some degree of importance to my quest, I believe such a fallacious conclusion came about through reference to its colossal population size. However I realised within a short space of time that population is all China has. And despite it being home to one fifth of the world’s population, its GDP is a mere one tenth. Then I soon concluded that it’s an insignificant place and that there was little I could learn whilst being there.
