    Regarding Branson, I know and remember the original case. The then Customs and Excise calculated he owed around 3,000,000 by falsely claiming back the then Purchase Tax. His mum came to an arrangement and paid Customs and Excise just around 500,000.

    There is nothing leftie about my post, I was merely pointing out how the media manipulates a story.

    And I was just pointing out that Branson being a smeghead is irrelevant to the story - just typical smear tactics (even if true!).

    And the makers of this video - you know they're just publishing the untainted truth... how exactly?
    You won. Get over it.

    Indeed. He has nothing to do with Virgin Trains, which are now owned by Stagecoach. They use the Virgin "brand" because it is seen as having more "value" to the consumer. Which translates as basic marketing bollox.
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Just looked that up; Stagecoach own 49% and Branson is still very much active in the company
