A lot of drama has unfolded in Chongqing since its former police chief Wang Lijun was demoted, then dropped from his post for hanging out in the US consulate in Chengdu a little longer than he should. Yesterday, rumours abounded that Chongqing’s beleagured party chief Bo Xilai had resigned from the Politburo.
A cryptic tweet posted yesterday morning by the Chongqing propaganda office on its Sina Weibo account did not help curious netizens wrap their heads around the drama. It reads thus:
One may not suffer for a lifetime, but may suffer for a moment.
There are many who seek to escape momentary pain, but end up suffering a lifetime.
The post quickly became one of the most retweeted post of the day. It has now been shared some 33,000 times.
