    Common knowledge.. but Kudos for bringing up the topic..

    Just because he is dyslexic doesn't mean that he isn't intelligent, It just meant that he did things his own way instead of following the usual pre-planned routes

    Dyslexia is rife amongst entrepreneurs; Henry Ford, the Ikea guy, Will Hewlett and Tommy Hilfiger all suffer (or succeed) with dyslexia, hell even Albert Einstein got in on the act!

    Nothing special about the guy, the first thing he did was put up prices when he took over my broadband supplier and any service he provides is no better than any other. The thing he is good at is self publicity.

    He doesn't own Virgin media. (Strange I know, I'm sure he just rents his brand name out for several million a year)

    Either way under his "brand" or ownership the price went up.

    You forgot to mention all his fake phone calls he rattles up on your bills, you see he does not have enough money so he tries to screw people with less for every penny he can get out of them. He is nothing more than a common thief backed up by his company with a shit train service to match his crap broadband service oh and to match his crap airline service.

    I heard in the early days he was involved in drug trafficking when he was importing vinyl records from Europe. used to put cocaine etc in the record sleeves but how true this is I have no idea, perhaps an urban myth. Point is though he just doesn't strike me as anyone to aspire to except to learn his methods of self publicity.
