comment Has the resignation of a political leader in a Westminster style parliament ever forced an election call?
Yes, Harold Holt, who disappeared on a swim (and had a swimming pool named after him). There have also been two more who died in office and two who lost their seats at election, one of whom subsequently regained his seat.

I'm assuming that by "public", you mean the English public. I doubt the French would have as positive an impression of him.

comment When and why China started to make a difference in the superpower arena?
I don't think China's entry to the WTO explains by itself China's current economic strength, as GDP growth was already pretty strong well before that.
