Branson, Ashley, Tim Martin & Bezos, total f*cking parasites all of them.

Instead of scrounging off the taxpayer they should be finding ways to help and contribute.

Branson could sell his bloody space ship and pay his staff and buy some ventilators.

Space travel is not an important matter atm. All the money on adventures such as that should be invested into healthcare and fighting corona. We don’t need to go to mars right now

Exactly.

Or maybe he and his billionaire mates can get on his spaceship, f*ck off into space, and stay there.

Absolutely this.

These people are so offensive it beggars belief.

.....

It is as simple as that. Don’t use Amazon or don’t fly Virgin.

Terrible isn't it?

That's what happens when you have a government influenced by the super rich.

None of you will be able to do anything about it, it's part and parcel of democracy.

Morning VC
First day of a two week near house arrest
Very limited movement allowed
Thankfully I have Guinness
How are things across the pond?

Right now, going into space would help them avoid coronavirus, while we're stuck down here.

If it were that simple Irish then the Govt would do it. But to fight the virus means you have to keep people out of work and by doing that it means these big corporations will go under.

This is why Boris for example kept people working a few weeks longer than he should.

I don’t mind Gov’s bailing out these people but they have to make sure that money goes to the employees and not back into the companies.

Ordinary people are supposed to have some sort of contingency kitty just in case, yet within the first week Branson was going cap in hand. Fecking joker that one. Billionaire caricature.

Fair point VC but we all know the cash won’t go to those it should

How typical though? Everytime these super rich do this. Cap in hand and begging.

Yet when they are raking it in, they do everything to avoid paying the right tax and sometimes no tax at all.

We pay taxes to make sure the infrastructure of the country is at decent levels and to help pay for NHS and the poor.

Why are we paying the super rich from the welfare kitty?

Flybe didn't get a bail out so I don't see why Virgin Atlantic should.

Anyway on the bright side only 272 days until Christmas

I’m not sure how true it is but I read that Branson has a net worth of £4.1B. If he were to pay the staff he’s sent home for 8 weeks without pay £500 a week for 8 weeks he would end up with a net worth of £4.05B

Because that's how you get re-elected.

That's why Corbyn never stood a chance, as he doesn't appease the rich.

Will he be worth £4bn if his airline goes bankrupt?

Ordinary people do benefit from the big companies' tax dodging through low, low prices.

Which of you complaining about it actually never uses Amazon?

I'm not even a fan of Corbyn, but that's how the system works.
