Netizens hails Premier's incisive response

"Premier Wen Jiabao gave a detailed summary on China's current basic national conditions in his speech and proposed a number of beneficial and effective measures toward its development."


Wen's remarks were greatly moving, and that he demonstrated charm as the premier of a great power.


Premier Wen withstood the pressure, and we know that he stands for the 1.3 billion Chinese people behind him. His remarks were not given on behalf of himself, but on behalf of all of China!


I was moved to tears after I watched his news piece on CCTV News the night before. The man's behavior did not negatively affect Premier Wen's remarks. On the contrary, he let the world witness the tolerance of a great country!


Netizens condemn troublemaker's despicable conduct

It is a surprise that there is such a despicable person at Cambridge University, we are furious.


This despicable conduct can only rouse strong indignation from the Chinese people and provoke more passionate patriotism! Let those anti-Chinese clowns who fear an increasingly stronger China tremble!


Premier Wen came from a great country to Cambridge with friendship. A buffoon did some improper things and the premier responded calmly with decency. His incisive response impressed the whole world.


Netizens: the rise of China is a historical inevitability


Our premier is great! The progress of China, like the wheel of history, will roll on. No matter what evils and demons are in the way, they will be crushed under the wheel!
