British luxury yachtmaker being bought by Chinese, much to the annoyance of posh racists

7 June 2013

yacht Poshos will be all of a flummox when they find out that a Chinese property group is going to be buying Britain's biggest luxury yachtmaker, Sunseeker. Once again, a little piece of their nation is being carved up and sent abroad, which is funny because posh people are all thundering bumwads.

The firm, who have shown off their wares in James Bond films and have sleb customers like Simon Cowell, Eddie Jordan and Nigel Mansell, is going to be bought by Beijing-based Dalian Wanda for around £300million.

Wang Jianlin, chairman and founder of Dalian Wanda, told the Financial Times: "We bought the best yacht company in the UK."

A spokesman for Sunseeker said that the buyout will be a 'significant investment' but insisted 'one thing is for sure, Sunseeker will remain a British brand'.

Even though it won't be.

China has been buying loads of big British firms recently, gobbling up MG Rover, Weetabix and Birmingham City football club. They'll be buying the Queen next.

    "They’ll be buying the Queen next" They can keep her too.

    Dont see anyone in the linked Daily Mail report complaining so why the "posh racist" comment in the title? Trying to get a rise out of people again, tell you what I wont be coming back here for any reason.

    This prick could get a job tomorrow working at the Star news paper. Question to Mof.. Do you actually get paid to write your copy, or is it a hobby so you can practice your writing skills.

    Is "racist" the word of the month at Bitterwallet? Is there some quota of articles they have to ram it into??

    I've defended BW in the past, but this is getting ridiculous now.

    "Racist" appear the be the word du jour for Bitterwallet, probably in an attempt to deflect attention away from the journalistic abilities of the monkeys hammering away at the keyboard.

    Jesus.. Mof..Is it beyond you to write something interesting or indeed funny? Is none of this proof read or looked at by 'the editors' I doubt even the Daily Star would employ this moron Last time I'm coming to this website

    @Fed Up Just you or the other 11 pseudonyms that you've posted comments as over the past couple of weeks. @Thatcher's Ghost See above (easy, as you're the same bloke)

    Ha! Suckers! I used to think I'd have to put some pretty racy stuff in the headlines to get all these wonderfully thought out comments posted but not any more. "By Mof Gimmers" seems to do the trick now and you all fall over yourself in an attempt to be the first to slag off whatever I'm writing about. I can't see you lot writing to the Daily Mail/Star/Cowes Courier (where the article first appeared) complaining about the content but here it's so easy with your box of tissues by your side as you furiously type one handed marvelling at how many "naughty" words you can see on the screen. Damn, I revealed my sources. *= Not my real name EDIT BY ANDY DAWSON: You're not Mof either are you?
  • Grammar N.
    @ Mof - good come back on the language, but the other comments regarding grammar, spelling, etc are all valid and the fact you haven't dealt with them suggests you know this. It's not just you, but someone really needs to start proof reading articles before they are posted - a lot of them have things in that just don't make sense and all because no one could be bothered spending 5 minutes to proof read.

    The articles arent quite as bad as the "tissue users" who regularly post obscene drivel in reply, but the quality of the stories HAS deteriorated in recent months. All the real journos away on holiday??? Although 80% of Chinese production is crap, the other 20% is beautifully made (like my Chinese wife).
  • Sporky M.
    @Captain.Cretin: Has she loved you a long time?
  • Captain.Cretin
    @ Sporky OH Yes, and "fo onry a dorrar a nigh fryboy!!!!" Seriously, if it wasnt for the current clampdown on foreign wives, the Chinese would be well on the way to cornering THAT market as well.

    @Grammar Nazi Good point well made and as if to highlight a lack of proof reading - Mr Dawson weighs in with "You're not Mof either are you?" right underneath *=Not my real name. Though to be fair he could be highlighting the fact Mr Gimmers wasn't replying. :-)
  • Queef
    What IS this crap??? If you want to report on the international sale of a business then fine, but try to keep your retarded imagination to yourself. Must remember to stop reading/visiting bitterwallet website... nothing worth anything here anymore
  • suck n.
