Go fly a ballon Branson...

What kills me is that there are some dedicated Internet players in the UK
market that have 'taken on the Americans' for some time and quite
effectively, this without the deep pockets of the Americans nor the
generosity of investors. What really pisses me off is that Virgin, who
have been on the fringes with average services, suddenly gain a John Wayne
swagger and claim to be the flag wavers. Bransons's statement 'We think we
can take on the Americans and beat them' is making the news because he is
King Richard. He can't turn a PC on, but he can make such a statement...a
statement that many of us have been actively undertaking with determination
for a number of years now. Its frustrating having to watch 'the bearded
one' make headlines with it. But there again...we are no Virgins. Nuff
