Praise the Chinese Legal System

File this under “You are kidding me right?”

The excerpt purports to tout the excellence of the ‘Chinese legal system’. Color me jaded, but based upon the reading I have done regarding the ‘legal system’ in China, its barely legal. Sure they like to sing its praises (the ccoms) before meeting those of us in the west, but a quick Google search will show just how far they have not come over the past 60 years.

I’m laughing my butt off as I read this from this source:
“BEIJING – China has established a comprehensive socialist legal system that provides a legal basis to help with the development of almost all sectors of the country, top legislator Wu Bangguo announced on Monday in Beijing.

The system, with the Constitution as its head, Constitution-related laws, civil laws, commercial laws and other important laws as its backbone, and national and local regulations as its support, is in accordance with China’s present circumstances and is a good basis to ensure the continuation of a socialist system that remains Chinese in nature, Wu said.

By the end of 2010, 236 national laws, more than 690 national administrative regulations and more than 8,600 local regulations had been enacted, according to the National People’s Congress (NPC), the country’s top legislature”
