Can you let me know the source of your claim to Branson's 12 month jail term?
Good question. Someone told me, iirc. Perhaps they were wrong? Perhaps they weren't .
But perhaps you and Utah will explain where you learned otherwise. Where did you learn of Branson's jailing to know it was for less than 12 months? Note, this is a repeat request for info here (see above).
All references to Branson's jail-time lead back to his own confessions in his autobiography. Though, frankly, it's a tome that gives Hans Christian Anderson a run for his money, when it comes to telling fairytales.*
You're consistently defensive of Branson, pov603. Will you help us to understand why, please? Branson wrote the parable of his jailing with an ulterior motive: to portray himself today as a redeemed, repentant and virtuous businessman. But is that a valid perception, pov206? (see above)
* A very basic understanding of English law tells us that Branson's account is not plausible. These days, you don't pay your way out of jail in Britain. Or, at least, if you do, you don't boast about it!
You didn't answer the question reichstag.
A simple 'I don't know' would have sufficed, however, in the absence of a simple answer to a simple question you try and deflect the question and say I am '...consistently defensive of Branson...'.
Where and when exactly? Can you at least answer that?
I will have to keep coming back to that question I am afraid, unless of course you are wrong and can confirm by return...
You also say, seemingly to try and provide and answer to a very simple question 'Someone told me, iirc.'
Forgive my ignorance with internet slang, but 'iirc'?
Which one of the following do you mean?
Please enlighten me.
**** IIRC If I Read Correctly
*** IIRC If I Recall/Remember Correctly
*** IIRC If I Really Cared
*** IIRC If I Recollect Correctly
** IIRC If It Really Counts
** IIRC In Internet Relay Chat
You do not tolerate others making seemingly flippant or spurious remarks, so you of all people can understand the need to provide an answer to a simple question of a statement you've made.
In answer to one of your questions 'where did i learn of Branson's jailing?', it was you dear reichstag.
By the way, it's pov603 not pov206 and Hans Christian Andersen not Hans Christian Anderson, iirc.
