Reports Virgin internet went down tonight have been circling like wildfire on Twitter tonight (27/04/2020) by many, many people…. So Has Virgin’s internet enterprise going down for millions of people got any thing to do with Richard Branson’s well heard of UK Government bale-out of £500m for Virgin Atlantic connected? Its certainly seems strange to us and millions of Virgin Internet users that he got a massive back lash due to him having paid NO tax in the United Kingdom for at least 14 years, including when he decided to sue the NHS.
So… Could this be Branson’s way of saying, you bailout Virgin Atlantic and I’ll switch your internet back on? Sounds like it could be to us and many millions in the UK no matter what part of the United Kingdom your in, basically a big man’s way of blackmail, basically saying you give me a loan and I’ll give some of the UK broadband again.
Richard Branson would describe himself as a philanthropist but surely at least 14 years of not paying UK income tax by holding off-shaw accounts shows him as the exact opposite?
Virgin Media, and Sir Richard Branson haven’t been without contriversy before but maybe this is just the tip of the iceberg and shows what he’ll really do (or try to do) to get what he wants, and when he wants it.
Judge it yourself, but make sure you read this post properly.
