Just idly wondering what the headlines would look like if Branson was the victim, rather than the perpetrator, of a press monstering. Again, courtesy of David Runciman:
In October 2013 Branson did finally admit that he was a tax exile of sorts, though he insisted it was simply an accident of circumstance. He was stuck out in Necker, he said, ‘for health reasons’. Moreover, he was not liable to British taxes because the bulk of his time was spent on charity work. A surprising number of people seemed to take this at face value.
