I re read the article and it doesn’t state that,Ratcliffe told The Telegraph the deed of gift challenge on the Solent would be “a bridge” to the 2024 full regatta that the paper reported “would almost certainly be held in Auckland”.
Ratcliffe, worth a reported $34b as founder and co-owner of petrochemicals giant Ineos, said he wouldn’t be funding the deed of gift challenge.
“Absolutely not. I want to be clear about that. Because that would be sort of like buying the Cup into the UK and I don't think that's appropriate,”
Whatever you are quoting from has added in the DOG bit and converted his wealth from £17 billion in the original to $34 billion
why would his interview with the telegraph reference itself?
