Earlier you posted the following in relation to VS and it’s staff, but the same could apply to the people in almost any other UK airline and their supply chains:FrenchPotatoEye wrote:Never made profit, now begging for money like destituted child on back street.
And still, brandson still not putting in his own money's. Vs is not worth saving. Better to flush money in toilet. As for jobs, many are losing jobs due to virus. Airline pepeole aren't special. It's economy. It happens.
Leaving aside the factual inaccuracies, you are talking in pretty blunt and unsympathetic terms about thousands of people’s livelihood (tens of thousands indirectly in the UK - and many more in Europe and beyond) their ability to put door on the table, pay the bills and keep a roof over their heads.
I’m sure they don’t find the situation remotely funny, and I suspect many have genuine fears about a destitute future.
You can’t have it both ways and then cry foul when it suits you. This is an awful time for many - the airline industry probably most of all. First and foremost, show some humanity. However, if you dish it out you should be prepared to take it back.
You lack of shame and humanity is obvious and you want to lecture others? It's revolting behavior. You want poor Deliveroo workers and care workers and everyone else in the country who pays their taxes to give free money to bailout a billionaire.
Well no, that's wrong and immoral and immoral for you to suggest. Branson doesn't get free money when he's a tax exile. The equity value of VS is zero by any reasonable definition without a bailout.
To a debt/equity swap to reduce the debt load by half and dilute existing shareholders down to 5%. Then Branson can put in another 100 million or the state can take an equity state. From John Kay to Martin Wolff to any well respected economist they've all been saying, you can solve over indebted companies through more debt. You need a bigger equity buffer whether from the state or private investors.
