This move has been underway for some time - this is the completion of the deal.

The Virgin brand name is highly regarded in the commercial world thanks to Sir Richard Branston always being willing to court publicity for his various business interests.

I believe Sir Richard will be doing very well out of the deal.

You don't move in such circles and acquire or sell multi-million pound operations without ensuring you reap the modest benefits...:-)

He's a self-made man - don't knock those who show enterprise.

It's how thousands of jobs are created in the UK and, in fact, all over the world.

Pattoo was referring to the extraneous T in Branson! ;-)

NTL are the most useless shower i have ever had the mis-fortune to do business with.

Sorry for the outburst but 20 minutes on hold this morning has made me really angry all day especially as i never got through and gave up trying. The sales assistant put me on hold for 5 minutes saying she was transfering me to a different department and then SHE picked up the phone after 5 minutes on hold because she hadnt actually transfered me at all.

It is an insult to anyone who actually is useless to call NTL useless.
