Steve Coulthard started this petition to UK Government

Richard Branson is calling for his employees to take unpaid leave during the coronvirus outbreak for 8 weeks, while having a personal wealth of almost 4 billion pounds. If he paid them over this period it would be eight weeks at the £94 statutory sick pay which would cost £754 per employee. There are 8,571 employees in Virgin Airlines. Richard Fuller MP said Sir Richard could pay his staff during an eight-week break from just the interest he could earn on his wealth. ‘So if all of them took eight weeks’ unpaid leave that would be a cost of £6.4 million. Sir Richard Branson’s net worth is £3.8 billion dollars.  ‘If he’s able to get 2% interest on that money for eight weeks, he will earn the equivalent of £9.9 million."

This from the same man who sued our NHS for a lost contract and was paid out of courst so no one knows how much money he stripped from our under pressure health system. I call for him to be be stripped of his knighthood.
