People’s Daily Slams Local Government Spending

The People’s Daily, which building its own new headquarters in Beijing, published an editorial on Monday which criticized local governments for spending public funds on luxurious offices. From Patrick Boehler of the South China Morning Post:

“County government offices are built like the American White House, city squares are larger than Tiananmen Square, the interiors of government guesthouses are sumptuously decorated,” an article said in People’s Daily.

“Luxury buildings are built to satisfy the pompous selfish desires of certain people, but they have hurt the feelings of the common people,” it said.

The People’s Daily article failed to mention that the newspaper is also building ostentatious new headquarters in , which – having already attracted widespread ridicule – will feature a helipad.
