    Chinese websites are censoring the phrase “Kim Fatty the Third”, a nickname widely used to disparage the North Korean leader, after officials from his country reportedly conveyed their displeasure in a meeting with Chinese counterparts.

    Searches for the Chinese words “Jin San Pang” on the search engine Baidu and microblogging platform Weibo returned no results this week.

    The nickname pokes fun at Kim Jong-un’s girth and his status as the third generation of the Kim family to rule the world’s only hereditary communist dynasty. It’s especially popular among young, irreverent Chinese who tend to look down on their country’s would-be ally.

    Relations between China and North Korea have been strained by Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme, which China has condemned along with South Korea, Japan, the United States and Russia. But Beijing continues to support the Kim regime with limited trade and diplomatic backing.

    Censorship; its a slippery slope.

    hmmm China is a long way down to be fair, Google is verboten

    Google is not available in mainland China, the government blocked it because they think that somethings on Google are against Chinese law.

    Very weak propaganda story, only the indoctrinated funnel heads can believe.

    As in 'Trump who wants to ensure no media outlet will ever be able to say anything 'bad' about him'..

    "One of the things I'm going to do if I win, and I hope we do and we're certainly leading. I'm going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money."

    false articles...? Doesnt Trump's suggestion reflect the same libel laws around press that UK already has. English law below for info.

    English law allows actions for libel to be brought in the High Court for any published statements which are alleged to defame a named or identifiable individual(s) (under English law companies are legal persons, and may bring suit for defamation[1][2][3]) in a manner which causes them loss in their trade or profession, or causes a reasonable person to think worse of him, her or them. Allowable defences are justification (i.e. the truth of the statement), fair comment (i.e., whether the statement was a view that a reasonable person could have held), and privilege (i.e., whether the statements were made in Parliament or in court, or whether they were fair reports of allegations in the public interest). An offer of amends is a barrier to litigation. A defamatory statement is presumed to be false, unless the defendant can prove its truth.

    By making it known that being called fat has hurt his feelings we all know his weakness.

    Forget nuclear war, we know his weak spot is Doughnuts and pies!

    If we all sent him a deep fried mars bar, he'd be dead in a week!

    I'm sure Trumpy would just shrug his shoulders at that and say 'Yeah yeah, whatever'
