The University of Liverpool's brush with the Chinese building trade
Newsnight last night carried a special report on White Horse village in China.
The issue of corruption was highlighted as big problem in a nearby city in the building trade.
In May I visited the University of Liverpool's joint venture the Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in Suzhou Industrial Park.
The "park" has more than 720,000 residents, slightly bigger than an industrial park in the UK.
I digress. In the middle of the university's main building is a step where two halves of the building meet.
Apparently two construction firms had to be used because of a wrangle in the local communist party as to how the contracts should be divvied up.
