A taxing question for Beardie

Richard Branson seems to have got very hot under the collar about Willie Walsh’s suggestion that the Virgin Atlantic name could disappear within a few years if Delta buy a stake in the airline from Singapore Airlines. Obviously a raw nerve there…

And if anyone wants to wind him up any more, might I suggest asking for confirmation that since Virgin Trains have won a two year extension on the West Coast route, any fees for the use of the Virgin brand name will be paid to UK-domiciled companies and UK tax paid in full.

It is not just Starbucks…
