Wahaha CEO and flamboyant billionaire Zong Qinghou recently revealed that he rejected two offers for dinner with both British Prime Minster David Cameron and The Queen.
“The Queen invited me for February 6, the Prime Minister invited me for the 12th, but the Lunar New Year was on the 9th. Should I have flown for ten hours, eat and fly back, then fly once again and eat and fly back?” stated a defiant Zong.
Worth 12.6 billion USD, Zong is China’s richest man, though he is well known for his frugality, previously claiming to only spend 20 USD a day on average – perhaps the prospect of dumplings over the New Year in his hometown of Hangzhou was more enticing than the potential fancies that Buckingham Palace or Number Ten would cook up.

No class - the polite thing to do, if invited & unable to attend, is say nothing in public.

He should attend the IRA's dinner campaign for financial donation.

If he can live on $20 per day why is he so rich? Surely he can find good causes for his money?
