A 'assasination' of sorts. Rumour has it he was Mi6 so this has become very political overnight. China's Livtenyenkyo case???
Well it certainly has but some things into perspective of late.
The house detention of top communist official Bo Xilai, until recently China's most popular politician, now stripped of his titles, while his ambitious lawyer wife, Gu Kailai, is charged with involvement in the alleged murder of ex-Harrovian British businessmen Neil Heywood, is a story with everything. The British class system meets the dark, internal labyrinths of the Chinese communist party to create China's biggest political scandal for decades. The Chinese state media are now in overdrive to portray Bo and Gu as an out-of-control, power-mad couple brought back within the rule of law by the wise, all-seeing party.
The rest of the world seems ready to play along. Bo was a dangerous populist politician, a throwback to the darker, more turbulent periods in China's recent history. The whole process by which he has been brought low may have echoes of the court politics of the old Chinese imperial system, but it is effective. The deed has been done and the reformers remain in control, with David Cameron welcoming the investigation into Neil Heywood's death and the resulting arrests.
Its all not James Bondy in real life...
Chinese govt looses the plot.
One of the more startling pronouncements in this vein occurred last week when Song Xiaojun, a former senior officer of the People's Liberation Army, warned that Australia cannot juggle its relationships with the United States and China indefinitely and "Australia has to find a godfather sooner or later. Australia always has to depend on somebody else, whether it is to be the 'son' of the US or 'son' of China. (It) depends on who is more powerful, and based on the strategic environment." Noting the rising importance of China as an export market Song added that Australia depended on exporting iron ore to China "to feed itself," but "Frankly, it has not done well politically."
What is also notable about Song’s remarks is that they coincided with Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr's first official visit to China, where Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi urged Australia to dismiss its alliance with the United States,

China said Thursday it would resolutely oppose any military provocation in its territorial waters, remarks which appeared to be directed at the United States, Vietnam and the Philippines.
China’s military has established routine naval patrols in the South China Sea, “indisputable territory” of the nation and a matter of “national sovereignty,” defence ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng said.
“We will resolutely oppose any military provocations,” Geng said in statements posted on his ministry’s website.
“The determination and will of China’s military to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity is unwavering.”
*In the meantime, the Japanese media (read: leak by Japanese intelligence) float an awesome rumor that the architect of the Great Chinese Firewall was in bed with notorious purge-victim Bo Xilai and helping him to wiretap the Chinese elite. Wow! I’d love to meet the Japanese provocateurs who thought that one up — I rather imagine that, like British spook Ian Fleming, they write thriller novels on weekends.
Taiwan and China have never been better...
Quote-He warned that China would be forced to retaliate if Japan take provocative actions over the Tiaoyutais -- a group of uninhabited islets located some 100 nautical miles northeast of Taiwan that are claimed by Taiwan, China and Japan.
A similar strategy or policy will be adopted in dealing with South China Sea issues, Sun said.
"Sometimes, we need a war to end all wars," Sun said, adding that Taiwan does not need to join such an armed conflict.

Chinese reporter playing with missiles...
Quote-They have anti-aircraft missiles mounted on the roof of their apartment building, and security, police, military and media coming and going like it's a high street bottle shop. Now, a bizarre few months for the residents of Fred Wigg Tower near London's Olympic Park has taken a further twist, with a Chinese reporter detained for allegedly trying to infiltrate the 15-level tower block with his notepad and pen.
Fairfax Media can reveal the journalist was accused of attempting on three occasions to pass by the security detail assigned to the public housing complex at Leytonstone, and walk unnoticed towards the lifts on the ground floor. On his third bid he was thrown out of the building by the security personnel monitoring people entering the flats, with London Metropolitan Police called to remove him from the street. It is unclear if he was attempting to uncover a weakness in the protective guard around the armed building for the sake of a news story or simply to push the boundaries of his profession.
China goes loco over Taiwanese flag.
Olympic organisers said on Thursday that Taiwan's flag had been taken down from a London display at the request of the Chinese embassy.
The banner was removed from a row of national flags hanging over Regent Street, one of London's busiest shopping roads, and replaced on Wednesday with that of Taiwan's Olympic committee.
This flag has been used by Taiwan at Olympic Games since the 1980s, when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ruled that the island could not compete under its formal name, the Republic of China.
Games organisers LOCOG said they had advised the Regent Street Association, which represents retailers and is in charge of the display, to remove the Taiwan flag after a complaint from China's embassy.
"The Chinese Embassy informed us that the incorrect flag was on display, and we passed this information on to the Regent Street Association," a LOCOG spokesman told AFP.
The Chinese embassy in London did not respond to repeated requests to comment.
China and Taiwan have been ruled separately since the end of a civil war in 1949, but Beijing still claims sovereignty over the island and has vowed to bring about reunification even if it means war.
