Is it me or is Branson just lame ! Really is he that desperate for publicity. Yawn what a hero
Richard Branson is not lame! He is a pretty radical guy, too lazy to go dig up facts on him.
I know plenty about him !
Living in the UK and being of his generation it would be hard not to
The guy jumps on every bandwagon going ,
Airlines , trains . Cosmetics . credit cards , internet provider , music ( sold out of that)
He is a money making machine !
I worked in BA when all of the disputes were going on , it wasn't pretty. Branson is a one man corporation who like stuff like this to show his human side !
I'm pretty sure there are plenty of regular joe guys (and gals) here who have tried stints like this with friends , but oh look at me I'm Richard Branson and I can pay a load of publicity guys to set up a shoot and get a Guinness record.
He also doesn't like paying uk tax and recently was quoted saying he lived on his private Caribbean Island for health not tax reasons .
He was also a staunch global warming denier until he worked out how to make cash out of it
So I will stick with my original comment . Lame
