China drowns bad civil servant

#3
He was detained under the CPC's internal disciplinary regulations known as shuanggui. It's notoriously brutal and the death rate in custody is quite high in comparison to the normal judicial system. How effective it is at controlling corruption is debatable but it's certainly popular albeit not with the officials being investigated.

Oddly, despite this there's still intense competition for membership of the Party and for official posts.

And Jim30 will be along to defend his fellow Civil Servant in 3, 2,...

Didn't the Chinese used to cut the balls of their CS, keep them in little jars on pullies so the testes could be raised and lowered according to the 'former owners' fortunes?

Nowadays they just use poor management and overwhelming processes to emasculate civil servants

Those were the eunuchs. Officials were a different kettle of fish and wholly intact.

Who would have thought a national leader would surround himself with those who lack balls...

That's cut his reoffending rate. It's 100% certain he won't engage in (allegedly) corrupt practices in the future...

Not in the slightest. I do though think it is remarkably poor taste of the OP to support executing public servants in the UK as a means of encouraging the others.

I'm sure no one would object if I pushed for a similar case for soldiers who get sub par OJARS?

Well I like the concept and will start pushing for it to be implemented over here. Also MPs are public servants are they not?


Does it also mean that I can fill the bath if the Traffic Warden looks at my car?

Fair enough. We'll ship them abroad and do it.

Happy?

The way it's going with OFCOM, I'm thinking I'm glad I live in UK because I bet they would like to do that to me!

Never mind if it's in poor taste, how effective do you think it would be?

That's democracy for you - executing Admirals was used as a method of motivating the navy in the past.

John Byng - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Byng is best known for the loss of Minorca in 1756 at the beginning of the Seven Years' War. In practice, his ships badly needed repair and he was relieved of his command before he could see to his ships or secure the extra forces he required. He was court-martialled and found guilty of failing to "do his utmost" to prevent Minorca falling to the French following the Battle of Minorca. He was sentenced to death and shot by firing squad on 14 March 1757...

Byng's execution was satirized by Voltaire in his novel Candide. In Portsmouth, Candide witnesses the execution of an officer by firing squad; and is told that "in this country, it is good to kill an admiral from time to time, in order to encourage the others."
So there is precedent...

Well it has got historical precedent in the Navy. John Byng for instance.

Bollards. To slow again. Wordsmith you utter utter!
