I see Dick Branson has been on the news carping about the closure of our air space and the subsequent loss of earnings for his airline company. He stated that he should be compensated either by Europe or by our government, as if they have any money of their own! As far as I am concerned I would much rather trust the word of a scientist as opposed to some greedy businessman when it came to the decision to ban all flights because of the volcanic dust cloud. I see it as another example of profit before people by big business and if any of my taxes find their way into his pocket I will be seething with rage. Virgin Atlantic is a private company and if business is bad for whatever reason then its tough titty.
