Democracy doesn't equal no corruption
""China is keen to clamp down on rampant corruption"
Give Democracy a go then?"
Sorry, but why would you think that installing a democracy would magically remove corruption? Why don't you pop down to Africa and see how wonderfully free of corruption all the democratic countries are....
To return to the article - the idea is very nice if they can continue to develop it. It can be very difficult to report corruption, and it pervades almost everywhere. You can hardly pop down to the local police station to report corruption, you'd be too afraid of the consequences, plus of course police try their best to avoid recording any type of crime - I had to argue for about 13 hours non-stop last time I wanted to press charges against someone.... (to record crime shows that crime is happening which probably affects their perfomance review - but if you insist enough they eventual give in and record it).
Anonymous complaints about corruption would have the additional benefit of causing officials to lose face when there name is mentioned multiple times. So even when they can't be caught, they'll start being more subtle and reducing the frequency of seeking bribes.
And to demonstrate the beauty of anonymous posting, I am posting this message anonymously (since I don't want my business in China to suffer as a result).
