The Clueless Wen Jiabao: “Most wide-spreading impact”

Chinese PM, Wen Jiabao, was quoted as saying that the 7.9-magnitude quake that hit southwestern Sichuan province on Monday had the “most wide-spreading impact” of any earthquake since the People’s Republic of China was founded in 1949, Xinhua news agency quoted Wen as saying.

[Note, for reasons unknown to FEWW moderators, the earthquake cluster’s mainshock was previously reported as magnitude 7.8, erroneously!]
