Thursday's Quote of the Day
"You can't even buy something the size of a toilet for that" - Yu Pingju, offered £25,000 to quit his Beijing home for an Olympics clear up.
It's a brave man who takes on the authorities in China, especially over a matter such as the Olympics. But that's just what Yu Pingju is doing by refusing to give up his family home in Beijing - a "tumble-down shack" in the heart of the city's historic quarter. His house is one of many so-called nail houses - homes whose owners have refused to leave for redevelopment - that have sprung up with the introduction of property laws last year.
