Letter: Branson and F1

Sir: So Richard Branson feels "let down" by Labour because of Formula One tobacco sponsorship.

Is this the same Richard Branson who runs Virgin Cross Country trains? The same trains which include a smoking coach, the gaseous contents of which pervade the adjacent coaches? The same trains which force non-smokers to sit in a foul atmosphere because of lack of seats in the non-smoking coaches?

Branson should decide which side of the fence he wants to be on.
