  1. Good for you. I’m sure Branson will be most upset.
  2. It's 1% over half his trainset to be accurate. The rest belongs to Brian Souter and Stagecoach, who will also have been involved in this decision. Their other big franchise, Virgin Trains East Coast is actually only 10% Virgin, the rest belongs to Stagecoach.

    ( Wonder if Branson will use his £24m 'Pay' from the Rail Franchise to Fund Blairs idea of a New Vote on Brexit ? )

  7. Unlikely, the losses from VTEC more than wipeout any profit from VTWC. He’ll be unlikely to take anything extra from either.
  8. GOOD !!
