Branson gives it some welly

SIR RICHARD Branson’s been busy of late – opening the first Virgin hotel earlier this month (in Chicago), repeating calls for Britain to remain in the EU, and even slamming Yahoo’s policy of limiting the extent to which its workers are allowed to work from home (he thinks it’s a good thing – and as you commute in this morning, perhaps you agree with him). Nonetheless the serial entrepreneur has found time to don some yellow wellies in support of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s Mayday fundraising campaign, which begins today. Well played, Sir.
