Moral of this story.....Do not call the Chinese mongrels when you are doing business with them.

Clive Palmer is an Australian billionaire businessman embroiled in a legal battle with Chinese state-owned company CITIC Pacific, which has accused Mr Palmer of siphoning off $12 million in funds.

Last week on a Current Affair program, Q&A, he went on the above extraordinary outburst calling the "Chinese mongrels" who "shoot their own people"....and the following is the result of his outburst.

CLIVE Palmer has apologised to "Chinese people everywhere" for his attack on "Chinese mongrels" who "shoot their own people" and "haven't got a justice system", eight days after making the comments.
The outspoken MP and leader of the Palmer United Party has written to the Chinese Ambassador in Australia, saying he "most sincerely" apologises for "any insult to the Chinese people" as a result of his comments made on live television last week.
China is Australia's top trading partner.
"I now come to the realisation that what I said on Q&A was an insult to Chinese people everywhere and I wish to assure them they have my most genuine and sincere apology," Mr Palmer wrote.
"I am sorry that I said the things I said on the program [and] I regret any hurt or anguish such comments may have caused any party."
Mr Palmer also wrote that he regretted any "hurt or anguish" his comments on ABC TV's Q&A might have caused "any party" and he looked forward to "greater understanding for peace and co-operation in the future".
The profuse apology comes after Mr Palmer's party room met in Canberra on Tuesday morning ahead of the resumption of Parliament, which has been on a five-week break.
Mr Palmer said last week he did not mind "standing up against the Chinese bastards" whom he accused of trying to take over Australia's ports to steal the nation's resources.
"I'm saying that because they're communist, because they shoot their own people, they haven't got a justice system and they want to take over this country," he said. "The Chinese government wants to bring workers here to destroy our wage system... they want to take over our ports and get our resources for free."
