Are you still not convinced that former president Jiang Zemin (江泽民), is alive? Here’s proof that our good old friend is alive and kicking.
Yesterday at the wake of former Shanghai party secretary and former Shanghai vice mayor Han Zheyi (韩哲一), a wreath from Comrade Jiang was seen alongside other wreaths from Hu JIntao, Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao , Jia Qinglin, Xi Jinping, Li Changchun and others!
Local broadcaster Dragon TV took pains to highlight this in its report yesterday evening of the wake held at the Shanghai Longhua Funeral Parlour.
This report, together with Xinhua’s terse one-liner claiming Jiang’s not dead according to “authoritative sources” will definitely shut those pesky news outlets — we’re looking at you, ATV — up from spreading further rumours.
