"In September 2007, Wu disappeared from national media for over twenty days, a sign that he has probably undergone medical treatment to what was speculated as cancer."
The above does not cite a source, is potentially controversial; furthermore, Wikipedia should not be a place for wanton speculation. The section has been deleted.
This article previously included the quote: "Hong Kong will have as much power as Beijing wants it to and nothing more", attributed to Wu.
This quote appears to have originated on Wikipedia, and is not to be found in the reference that was cited for the quote. No mention of the quote can be found prior to it appearing on Wikipedia in 2007, and none of the contemporary media reports indicate Wu said anything so direct.
However, the presence of the quote on Wikipedia led to it being replicated on many websites, and even in David Curtis Wright's book, "The History of China". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:35, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you for bringing this up. I have attempted to fix this with a few more sources. "Wu noted that Hong Kong would only get as much authority as granted by Beijing." was the quote from the Standard, I don't think it's terribly far off from the quote in the article - which I agree was inaccurate and lacking in nuance. The solution would be to recruit more editors familiar with Chinese politics, Hong Kong, etc., so that such a mistake does not happen again. Colipon+(Talk) 16:38, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
