Dyson will no longer be a British company after deciding to move their Headquarters to Singapore.

They must be a huge part of your country's business market share.


What a total jerk, after starting and building a successful company and not supporting those who helped him get there.

Exactly my thoughts, you've hit the nail on the head! I hope the British public boycott their products now

What's not being reported is one of their main offices in the world has been based out of Chicago USA I wonder if this office will close now?

if you look up Dyson V10 on Instagram you can see their huge push towards the Asian market. This is the last market that they have any sort of reputable name in.

Here are some photos from a corporate Dyson meeting in China .
Notice the background is the same place but there are "different influencers"

Do I see a bottle of talcum powder in that first picture? I'd like to see what would happen to a Dyson that was fed a steady diet of that!

Dyson can't take a lot of fine dust at one go. It will clog up the cyclones.
My DC40 cyclone pack got blocked after the flour pick up and it was pain to get clean.
Even in the normal use you have to be very careful what you pick up.
I hate the idea when you have to guess how dirty those cyclones are because there is no easy way of taking it apart.

This sort of thing is why so many are rising up against "globalization." The ideology that we have no control over anything and that loyalty to anything is wrong has made people realize what an unpleasant world it is becoming. A world where supranational and transnational organizations control our destiny is stirring people.

The heart has reasons for which reason knows nothing.

@tolivac It's a metaphor for groupthink and doing what the TV tells you.

It's called the NPC meme , NPC comes from non playable character. Example a robot you can't control in a video game.
The blue head has become the NPC emoji🗣️
Please excuse my obscure sense of humor.

Thank you Vacuumdevil for explaining the "blue face" now I get it.Since I don't use video games I wouldn't know about that.

At this stage don't EVER want to buy a Dyson vacuum!

Iíve owned a few Dysons, they never managed to outclean the Fantom Thunder 11amp. Couldnít even design a better cleaning vac then that old design after all these years using their own technology.

Ok members, don't kill me or attack me for saying this, but I don't think this has anything to do with Dyson betraying the United Kingdom. I think this move has a LOT MORE to do with Brexit & the impact it would have if Dyson stayed in Britain & Brexit gets passed & comes into law. In fact, I think James Dyson would have been VERY foolish if he had even considered staying in Britain for even one minute, that's how much of a threat Brexit poses to Britain's economy & it's position in Europe.

Having said that, I do own a Dyson DC33, & while it's got great suction & a really efficient cyclone, it's overall performance doesn't impress me. I also haven't been that impressed by their latest upright models performance either. I won't be buying a Dyson vacuum anytime soon.
