    James Dyson multi billionaire turned his company

    to making 15,000 ventilaters.

    The Cupid stunt of an owner who owns our club, also a multi billionaire instead tries to ramp money for his own pocket out of the British public.

    Two billionaires but what a difference in attitudes and respect for human dignity.

    There has been a few business that have been doing things like this to help support.

    Not trying to take away from him as it's brilliant.

    But a fair few have put human life ahead of profit.

    Then there is our ****.

    Lets be fair here, the conversion of his production lines is relatively easy. He won"t be selling many vacum cleaners and I doubt he will be giving the ventilators away.

    Doesn't excuse our parasites actions though.

    This is what it says...



    Dyson plans to manufacture 15,000 medical ventilators designed from scratch, following a call from the prime minister for British industry to supply the National Health Service with equipment to fight coronavirus.*

    The appliances maker told staff it had received a UK government order for 10,000 of the devices and aims to begin delivering them “in weeks”, contingent on regulatory approval it expects to obtain on Friday.*

    Billionaire founder Sir James Dyson is to pay for a further 5,000 to be made, of which 4,000 will be donated to other countries.*

    Thanks for that.

    Fantastic effort and gesture from the man.

    Our parasite can't even delay payments for season tickets.
