    Chinese man bidining to buy the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible

    Lin Jianbang, English trader of Chinese origin, has confirmed to media that his lawyer has already given the legal papers to the British Navy to bid on the former British aircraft carrier, the Invincible.

    "The deadline set by the British Navy is January 5, " Lin said to reporters by telephone. "The Navy has not set a reserve price for the" Invincible ", bidders wishing to participate in the auction are first prize, and the Navy will compare the bid price, and then evaluate the intended use of aircraft carriers and finally announce the winner in early February. Experts estimate that the amount of the auction should be about 2 million pounds (about 20 million yuan), and the maximum price I can accept is 4 million pounds (about 40 million yuan). "
    [...]
    He revealed that if he could acquire the Invincible, his first objective would be to tow it to China and to transform it into an international school in a shipyard in which he invested in Zhuhai to promote the cultural exchanges between China and Britain.
