Branson Backs Down: Virgin Trains Will Stock Mail

Virgin Trains has reversed its decision not to stock the Daily Mail on its services and will revert to selling the newspaper, Richard Branson announced this morning. Branson backed down in a statement:

“Freedom of speech, freedom of choice and tolerance for differing views are the core principles of any free and open society. While Virgin Trains has always said that their passengers are free to read whatever newspaper they choose on board West Coast trains, it is clear that on this occasion the decision to no longer sell The Mail has not been seen to live up to these principles… I have instructed our team at Virgin Trains to reconsider this decision and re-stock the Daily Mail while they undertake a full review of their sales policy, making clear that this policy should not single out individual media titles.”

Motorboat’ Branson has had several notable appearances in the news pages recently. Press-hating vendetta groups such as Stop Funding Hate, who welcomed the ban, will be gutted. What a shame…

‘Motorboat’ Branson Lectures Mail on Values

Richard Branson has taken to lecturing the Daily Mail on their values, proclaiming that regardless of customer choice the newspaper will no longer be offered on Virgin Trains. His company said:

“Thousands of people choose to read the Daily Mail every day. But they will no longer be reading it courtesy of VT (Virgin Trains)… We’ve decided that this paper is not compatible with the VT brand and our beliefs. We won’t be stocking the Daily Mail for sale or as a giveaway.”

A lecture on values from Richard Branson, who just a month ago was accused of ‘motorboating’ US singer Antonia Jenae – that is, putting his head between her breasts. Jenae said the incident “feels like sexual assault.” She recalled:

“We were by the bar and he was saying bye to everyone. He came up to me and put his face in my breasts. He went ‘brrrrrr’ and just walked away.”

Branson didn’t deny it and apologised – also saying he “had no recollection”…

A lecture on values from Richard Branson, who F1 star Jenson Button recalled had stared at and then touched his girlfriend:

“Although Jessica was a model, she was quite shy, so this was making her feel uncomfortable. Especially when Sir Richard followed up his blatant flirting by putting his hand on her face.”

Branson didn’t deny it and apologised…

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
