Communist paper urges unity after China scandal
AFP 9 hrs ago.
China's top Communist Party newspaper on Thursday urged the country to unite behind the ruling party, as it seeks to minimise the fallout from the high-profile purge of top leader Bo Xilai.
A front-page commentary in the People's Daily -- mouthpiece of the party -- urged Chinese people to "fully understand the great significance" of rising star Bo's suspension from the party, which had provoked "strong reactions".
"Chinese people should firmly support the correct decision, and unite around the (party leadership) to push forward the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics," it said.
State media announced late Tuesday that Bo, the charismatic former party leader of Chongqing city once tipped for the very highest echelons of power in China, had been suspended from the powerful 25-member Politburo.
That was followed by the shock revelation, in a brief dispatch on the official Xinhua news agency, that his wife Gu Kailai was being investigated over the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood, who died in November.

OK, now we know the position of The New York Times, but what are they saying in China?/s;)
Haven't heard that one in awhile. This little interparty dust up is far from concluded.
Communists, so corrupt, so much in denial, “unity” is good only if they do it and for themselves.
“American people should firmly support the correct decision, and unite around the (party leadership) to push forward the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics”.
This what we’ll be hearing soon.
From the article . . .
“That was followed by the shock revelation, in a brief dispatch on the official Xinhua news agency, that his wife Gu Kailai was being investigated over the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood, who died in November.”
Seems to be a lot more intrigue behind this story than just an internal Chi-com power struggle.
