People are dying and Richard Branson wants to get richer off the backs of ordinary hard working folks – profiteering whilst others are suffering.
I used to look up to the man. But since he bought my mortgage company after the 2008/Lehman Brothers crisis, they have set their interest rate at an extreme profit margin, all whilst interest rates have been historically low (like close to zero). For more than 12 years now I’ve been paying a huge premium over the Bank Of England’s base rate, straight into Richard Branson’s pocket. It’s one of the reasons I’ve personally struggled financially ever since 2008 – whilst Richard has his fingers in a number of pies, including his own island. Bouncing around in his private jets and floating around in Bentleys, living the life of Riley.
See for yourself :
Or just search “northen rock high interest rate” on Google.co.uk, and there’s a bunch of other sources reporting the same thing.
NORTHERN ROCK IS OWNED BY PARENT COMPANY “VIRGIN MONEY” AKA RICHARD THE THIEVING BASTARD BRANSON.
Also – He’s a tax cheat via British Virgin Islands – a luxury the rest of don’t get afforded, that’s called tax evasion in UK and is potential jail time. Small people who try to avoid paying taxes get bullied by the tax man in the UK, big people like Branson, get a free pass.
And he sued our “free-for-all” health care system, the NHS, for “an undisclosed sum” which we all pay for out of our tax, and in the same sentence has the audacity to fundraise for the NHS of which he keeps 4.5%
And, now he wants to dip his hand into UK taxpayer pocket for a bailout of his airline, to the tune of 1/2 billion pounds.
No, not over my dead body. The sheer audacity and brass balls of the man beggars belief, he legally steals from ordinary folks, doesn’t pay any tax via loopholes, and then, his greed knows no bounds, wants us to bail out his airline. Fuck you Richard Branson.
So, I would urge you to sign this petition, and let these greedy bastards know that we’re not paying for their excessive lifestyles, whilst suffering poverty ourselves. The pandemic, on top of 12 years of austerity due to 2008/Lehman brothers, has been struggle enough for many folks – without burden of independently wealthy people burdening us more. Surely he’s in the club with the big banks who get the lion’s share of money printed by the government, so get them to bail him out. Or,
As for Virgin airways, sell it on to Qatar airways or someone else who has the money (Qatar already own AT LEAST a 25% share in British Airways and Iberia Airways, via the “IAG Group” that we know of), at a big discount, lose a few of your millions Mr Branson, a fraction of your net worth and do your bit to help out – give the proceeds to the NHS, without taking a cut.
Absolutely my duty to raise awareness of this cooked man, and his crooked ways, he’s no right to the “Sir” in front of his name.
Our only recourse is to petition stripping him of his knighthood, I have already signed the petition I’m sharing here – This from change.org :
‘Sir’ Richard Branson is a British entrepreneur who is a disgrace to his country. His personal wealth is estimated at £4.2bn
His company Virgin Care SUED the NHS for an undisclosed figure in 2017. Yet he takes 4.5% of all donations given to the NHS through Virgin Giving which has amounted to millions!!!
He also is asking for a £500M bailout of UK taxpayers money for his company Virgin Atlantic 49% of which is owned by Delta – an AMERICAN company! he has also put thousands of staff on extended leave or asked them to take voluntary redundancy.
He has also NEVER paid personal income tax since moving to the tax haven British Virgin Islands 14 years ago.
Its unacceptable rich billionaires are milking the system in times of national crisis.
Richard Branson is a traitor to his country and should be stripped of his knighthood!
PLEASE SHARE THIS PETITION TO SOCIAL MEDIA! WE CAN’T LET BEHAVIOUR LIKE THIS SLIDE!
THE WORLD IS CRAZY.
