Willy Lam: In the new normal, rules are meant to be followed

"There is no quota for the anti-graft campaign, and there is no upper limit" on the rank of those to be disciplined. This is the latest instruction given by President Xi Jinping on the clean-governance crusade that has shaken up the Chinese Communist Party in the past two years.
