    You can't grow a beard either? It's OK, just accept it and move on.

    others work in airport customs and were confiscating $400k in cash from Chinese tourists who didn't even want the money back

    there was a bbc business daily podcast last week talking about China's capital flight, interesting listen
    Here it is - BBC World Service - Business Daily, China's Capital Flight featuring a professional money mule

    Lots of Chinese buyers here in the NYC area when I have been looking around.

    There was an article on Midlands Today (aka what's happened in Birmingham as nowhere else in the Midlands exists) that proudly boasted of the amount of Chinese investing in Birmingham.

    I just think they got on the wrong plane and ended up there instead.

    Still, you wouldn't have to travel oop North to go the Brum....

    They are deliberately moving outside London because it's cheaper and it is easier to hide. They are also "investing" in Northern UK cities.
