The latest installment in the CPC's propaganda upgrade under Xi: here the leader is pictured in welcoming cartoon format saying that he spends so much time about the people's business that he barely has any for himself. An inforgraphic follows. It seems to be going down fairly well too.
Fun facts about the president. His froglike stance is meant to indicate that he is open to the people and assumes the no-nonsense zip up Harrington style jacket because he has no time to stand on ceremony. Actually, the Harrington knockoff is part of the general semiotic equipage of the Chinese leadership and has been since Deng used to wear them. Photos of the entire standing Committee so garbed - Premier Li favours a nifty looking white number - make them look like superannuated football casuals. Where the zhongshan suit is occasionally worn for 'national' occasions and the business suit for state occasions, the zip up is put on when the leaders are out among the people, signalling hard-headed practical common sense, approachability and general grass-rootsiness.
