China Shops On Singles Day

The great hypocritical country China, communist land of the billionaire, celebrates Singles Day today. Or Great Big Shopping Day as Alibaba probably refer to it. The day is etched in Chinese history, well for the last eight years. Not sure how shopping celebrates the Lonely Hearts, but hey whatever gets the tills ringing. Wait for Amazon to roll it out next year.

Last year David and Victoria Beckham, two of our greatest financial exports, got the ball rolling. And this year Nicole Kidman helped get the party started with Pharrell Williams.

Last year the day made 113bn yuan or £13bn.

Kerching. Jack Ma will be so happy.
