In the flesh

I like Richard Branson. He's got a winning smile, a good business brain (to put it mildly), and he seems like a nice chap too. Plus his wacky adventures are always headline grabbing.

I was in a room with him last night. He looked very similar to how he looks on TV. Which maybe an obvious statement but sometimes these 'famous' types don't measure up in real-life to their TV angled dimensions. Know what I mean?

While I admire him as a business man, I find his PR image to sit very uncomfortably with the reality of his offshore companies and tax affairs.

He has spun his media image extremely well - for which he should in a way be congratulated.

Ah, well, this may indeed be true. But, if such loopholes exist, it would the rare entreprenure and financial whizz who failed to exploit them to some degree.
