LMAO- Jaguar Land Rover

Will now be built in China - 1 Billion dollar deal struck

Source - BBC:

P.S. For all you yuppies out there :)

Jaguar Land Rover is to make vehicles in China for the first time after Beijing approved a £1bn joint venture.

The West Midlands-based luxury carmaker agreed a "milestone" deal with Chery Automobile and will build a plant near Shanghai, which is due to open in 2015.

JLR said any cars produced would be in addition to its existing output, and it had no intention of moving its manufacturing base out of Britain.

Sales of JLR models in China have risen by 80% so far this year.

Holy Crap!

I was only making a joke! I guess the world is even more pathetic than I thought. (Oddly enough I was looking at a China plate the other day and noticed it said 'Hecho en Mexico' on the bottom..chuckle)

Attach a crappy label; double the price. Odd marketplace. Guinness ® has superior products. Best be made & consumed in Ireland.

I do not eat that cereal nor make those cookies. I do see some humor in labels. Democrat... Republican... Two more labels that turn cheap tricks. We the people end up paying the high price tab. It would be cheaper to keep a harem.
