Yeah, and the Chinese are now RR's top clients. Have any Hongqis been sold in Britain?

Of course not.
Who can afford the Civilian Version of Red Flag L5 V12-powered Chinese limousine selling for $800,000?
     
Visitors like French President François Hollande and South Korea's Park Geun-hye were both driven around in a Hongqi L5 and found it pretty cool to sit in a car powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that sends 400 horsepower and 405 lb-ft. of torque to all wheels.

UK lads better stick to cars with wheels designed for their country.

The Hongqi LS5 SUV, is set to compete with cars such as the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5, and Mercedes-Benz M-Class. It is a huge car: 5198/2098/1890, wheelbase is 3060, and that makes it bigger then the outgoing Audi Q7. Weight is 2850kg. Power comes from a brand new twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
The engine develops 381hp and 530nm, and is mated to an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox sending power to all four wheels.
Personally I like the May 9th 2015 Victory Day Parade in Minsk made the Hongqi L5 which is a convertible.
However, HSBC is killing me financially, therefore I'll have to settle for Hongqi LS5 SUV.

Hermes.

Am I right by associating the name with 'Cravats'?

In my opinion, them ties will be dead in another 10 years.
'Carré'  is fitting both sexes very well indeed, but somehow, they suffer as well.

Go on, Emmy Mouse; you of all posters won't ever sit in a Red Flag. By the way, as far as I know the chassis of those cars is imported. It probably is a Lexus. And the engine is not from Geely either. It is still a cool car but it is not a famous car that is sought after in the world. It's like the Chunghwa ciggies - formerly made exclusively for members of the C.P.C., hardly any Chinese ever heard the name of this brand. Now it is available to all and sundry but it has serious rivals, such as Marlboro.

To hundreds of millions of Chinese, even decent ilk powder is "a luxury". Think about it. All those new mothers flocking abroad to stock u on infant formula… They will also buy French lingerie, Italian fashion, or Japanese comics.

Uncle Sam is not quite dead! His debt is less % of GDP than after WW II. Some examples of countries' "well-being scores" made by GDP per capita / GINI coefficient (a measure of inequality of income). Norway 258,462 Singapore 180,652 Switzerland 181,875 Germany 154,000 Taiwan 135,294 Australia 133,143 USA 132,683 Canada 132,353 UK 120,909 European Union 118, 387 Japan 117,188
S. Korea 114,194 Israel 76,977 Russia 58,333  Iran 38,762 China 35,676 Brazil 30,000 India 17,059. Look up GINI coefficients at Wikipedia.com. Draw your own conclusions, folks.
Without World Government we are DOOMED.

If you want to find out if any countries are dying, just go to Wikipedia.com. Look up A. each country's GINI coefficient then B. it's PER CAPITA GDP (at PPP). B/A will tell the tale! Try it.
