Constitutionally, Li Keqiang is sort of somewhere between George Osborne and Nick Clegg. Can't se this happening with either of them.
After Li and the other vice premiers left the venue, many reporters rushed to the stage to snatch up pencils and papers used by top officials. At the same time, several female reporters aimed for things bigger than stationary – they wanted the bottle of mineral water that Li drank from. Li was reportedly pouring water into a glass so that his lips never touched his bottle. At the end, a lady in a white jacket got to the bottle first, and began drinking!
Reminds me of the black market in Lourdes water we used to have at Christian Brothers school.
