And your point is?


Female civil servants in eastern China have been banned from wearing sexy clothes and told not to use “dirty” language in the office.


The report also recommended women should adopt manners in line with their professional positions.

“They should use elegant language, avoid rude words and must not in any case use dirty or strange words,” it said.

“When they receive guests or speak on the phone, they must say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’,” the report said.

OK, this is apparently “news” for some reason. It seems like a fine idea to me, since it applies only to government employees while they are at work. I guess it’s a novelty to the British these days that this kind of thing would be expected from employees?
