    what Stephen are you saying that Virgin ” favourably treated airline under-writers”!?!
    But isn’t that the absolute right of the directors ?
    whom I presume viewed the participation of the (airline) underwriters as in the best interests of the company . they are not there to serve the interest of the ( individual) shareholders. Do you really think that those 11 Virgin shares were worth 38 cents ?
