These "Resignation" threads just go to show that people resign from their jobs all the time. And these threads came up in 2009, 2010, 2011 and probably before. Yes, people change jobs. Shocker.
Though it is quite obvious that the OP tries to stretch a picture IMO.
What the heck do four threads about this mean..
BEIJING — The unceremonious firing Thursday of Bo Xilai, the populist Communist Party chief of the southwestern mega-city of Chongqing, was seen by some observers here as a victory for China’s reformers and a stinging defeat for those known as the “new leftists,” for whom Bo had emerged as a champion. But with the party’s internal wrangling shrouded in secrecy, the latest twist in China’s most tumultuous political drama in years has left many — from ordinary Chinese to foreign China-watchers — perplexed about what is really going on behind the vermilion walls of the Zhongnanhai leadership compound in Beijing.
Beijing authorities were already investigating Bo’s anti-crime crusade because of allegations that the targets were often wealthy Chongqing businessmen. Bo’s right-hand man in the crackdown was his then-police chief, Wang Lijun, who himself became the subject of a corruption probe and was demoted this year. On Feb. 6, Wang fled Chongqing for Chengdu, more than 200 miles away, and took refuge for a day at the U.S. Consulate before being escorted to Beijing by Chinese security officials.
