HAN HAN TO STAY IN ‘CORRUPT CHINA’



Writer and racing driver Han Han (韩寒) ridicules both China and Canada in a recent blog post.

In an article published to clarify a rumor about a TV program featuring him over a decade ago, he said he had NEVER thought about moving abroad.

The main reason for not wanting to go abroad, he clarified, are his ties to friends, family, relatives, readers and car racing events in China.

In addition, he said he loves reading Chinese and eating Chinese food.

He added there is one more reason which he told a Canadian media outlet several years ago.

“In China, I’m already used to being surrounded by corrupt officials. If I move abroad and find I’m still surrounded by China’s corrupt officials, them I’ll definitely break down,” he wrote.

Rich Chinese people, especially government officials, are flocking to Chinatowns in Western countries, with Canada topping the list of havens.

May Daily Says: He has certainly hit the nail on the head :)
