He must be struggling for business due to the impending loss of the franchise. I have an aversion to travelling on anything branded 'Virgin', as it implies that they have never done it before and you are never quite sure if they will go all the way;)

Well his broadband, phone, and tv service are not very good and he
could not complete his trip in his hot air balloon but I
suppose that's all it is with him as long as he's spouting
hot air somewhere

I did meet him once years ago when I photographed him and he was very friendly. Did anyone else notice that he was being interviewed with palm trees in the background last night?

Years ago I helped organise a charity ball (that's a posh dance :rockroll: :dance:) in the grounds of his country house - which is in my village... we were all in Black Tie (thats posh clobber :king: :cool1:) and he turned up in a sweater with holes in the elbow.

But he didn't complain about the huge muddy tracks we carved into his cricket pitch ....

That was from his home in the Caribbean!

He is a gifted entrepeneur. I think the West Coast line will not do any better than him!
