Why do Chinese rich people lose sense of safety
The tide of investment immigration of Chinese rich people surged in 2009. According to immigration agency source, Canada and Australia are the top 2 immigration destinations for the Chinese rich because two nations apply relatively lax immigration policy and the Chinese immigrant communities there have grown mature which provide convenience for new immigrants to adapt to new life.

And all the poor head to UK to work illegally in the restaurants and pay no tax, while all other foreigners pick up their defrauded welfare benefit. :lol:

'The poor' head to SG to better their lives. Many many of the poor target Britain to live perpetually on benefits.

Sorry, I would quote Horace or Shakespeare but it is a little early.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't...

I maybe a little sensitive but I smell a tint of sinophobia here...

I gather some may take a little longer to adjustt to this paradigm shift

If somebody shows the ugly side of China, then sinophobia. lol. :P

My friends, my family are also criticising the bad things in China everyday, like other Chinese people, e.g. high inflation, exploding property prices, corruption etc. etc., do they all have sinophobia? :mrgreen:

This is a website of Southern weekly, a very famous newspaper in China.
http://www.infzm.com/

I read it a lot, this is a very good newspaper, comparing with the throat of the party, people's daily and many others.

It's probably the only one which reveals the truth and is loyal to the journalism ethics and standards. It's quite respected by many chinese people.

Sorry if I fail to clarify my statement:

I meant "here" as in within this thread based comments made about rich/poor Chinese migrants. If one is rich, you are classfied as a corrupted Chinese with official links...and for the poor, you will be classified as just another illegal restaurant worker who pay no tax...

However, to critise things about China politicies/human rights/communism/dictatorship/lack of freedom/copyright infringments/animal abuse/Tibetan/Taiwan issues etc etc does not fall under sinophobia classification, strictly speaking.

I hope I am making some sense here... :)

Clarity cannot be achieved when the mixture is constantly being disturbed.

Give it time to settle.

That's a very clever thing to say, seriously. I am impressed.

Yes, I am a sinophobe, as is my wife . . . if sinophobia means pointing out the crud that sticks to things

What on earth are you talking about? There are two Chinese people here, you and Eau.

Do you speak in banal riddles to make up for failings elsewhere?
