I got to this post and stopped reading (not because anyone is "wrong", and i usually avoid posting the Grey Area, simply because these are PERSONAL
experiences and i have no right to add logic to it (because personal experiences can defy logic at times).
BUT this topic hits close to the proverbial "home". I've actually met Sir Richard Branson (even before the knighthood), he actually is
surprisingly nice, polite and respectful. I'm not what you classify as "elite" or "filthy rich" i hold my own so to speak.
ANYHOW, what is said above is completely correct. Branson left school young, and kicked over a business selling music, then created Virgin Records
(Producing music) and then of course everything else is history. The guy donates large sums of money to charity. I personally actually quite like
him, and have respect for him.
Lastly, to which is NOT publicised, Branson actually flys his own flights, instead of sitting in first class (or Premium Economy) he is actually found
serving drinks, and helping passengers etc, and as far as i know there was no media present during this event (and it was not publicised as far as im
aware). So having a multi-billionare serving me my Coke & Noodles on a flight was especially spiffy.
