This was to have been a post introducing a shaky but somehow still charming video I shot at this morning’s announcement of China’s new ruling Politburo. However, in her wisdom the Great Firewall Nanny person has seen fit to block youtube, through which I was attempting to upload. Even behind a VPN this proved impossible. Anyway, it means you don’t get to see those pictures of nine men in black suits and very black hair waving in a manner they must have learned from watching video of the Queen of England. Serves them right……Meanwhile see here for my postcard from the Party Congress where it all began. Maybe I’ll have more luck tomorrow.
