Xi’s the One

Hey, at least they’re not white!

Xi Jinping has been confirmed as the man to lead China for the next decade.

Mr Xi led the new Politburo Standing Committee onto the stage at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, signalling his elevation to the top of China’s ruling Communist Party.

The party faced great challenges but would work to meet “expectations of both history and the people”, he said.

Most of the new committee are seen as politically conservative, and perceived reformers did not get promotion.

Naturally, conservative means a different thing there than here.

But is there a more boring line-up of politicians outside of Mitch McConnell’s family album? I know we’re not supposed to comment on the similarity of their appearance, but could they at least meet us halfway and not dress and groom to look identical?

    Dark suit, white shirt, red tie–Ronald Reagan dressed the same way.

    And Ronald Reagan dressed like me.
