Richard Branson refuses to leave Necker Island , Direct Hit by Irma, Branson and Crew OK
Richard Branson is refusing to leave his private island in the British Virgin Islands as 175mph Hurricane Irma heads straight for it.

The business magnet is battening down the hatches at his luxury estate on Necker Island as Irma was upgraded to a Category 5 storm today.

The billionaire says he's survived two hurricanes on the island thanks to his specialised 'hurricane proof' buildings - but says "nothing can withstand" a Category 5 storm.

Branson wrote on his blog today: "Generally speaking, we have one hurricane in the British Virgin Islands around every 10 years.

"Fortunately, most of them drift north of us, but this one is coming straight for us, with the eye of the storm heading straight for Necker, Moskito Island and Virgin Gorda.

He must have a reinforced underground bunker there.

Why would he? You know he has a very sophisticated bunker he and his family/friends will be more than safe in.

Looks like plenty of high ground there too.
Definitely a bunker in there somewhere.

....and he has the money to rebuild anything Irma trashes at least 100x over.

You know damn well this man has no fear of global nuclear war, let alone Irma. He prolly already hand picked people he wants to survive well before the impact.

He has an underground bunker that's built to withstand a nuclear blast. It's fully stocked and powered by an underground generator. Everything is waterproof. The bunker even has an air filtering system. He'll be fine.
Get over it or die mad.

It just occurred to me that Branson may be using this as an opportunity for trial run of his bunker/base.

Good!

Some say there is no connection whatsoever between trains being far too expensive / offshore TAX havens for the rich & several train company owners having their own private islands.

I'm personally not so sure..

Re: Richard Branson refuses to leave Necker Island , Direct Hit by Irma, Branson and Crew OK
would it be crass of me to suggest a broad campaign accross the Carabian islands to build proper bunkers for the population from future hurricanes.?

Now cat 4 5 is becoming normal.

The uptick of storms was predicted thirty years ago, without geo--engineering, or global electromagnetic manipulation as seen last week on the satelite data.

Branson is currently suing the NHS in Britain. The NHS is the public hospitals and medicare that provides for everyone, and is run by the taxpayer. Branson put in a bid for a multi-million pound contract and didnt win the contract, so he is suing the NHS. Now I dont care who you are, but someone who sues the NHS like that, and especially a billionaire... it beggars belief. What do you call someone like that?

that dude already did most things in life normally a hundred people wouldn,t to together in their lifes.
he flew, crossed,went just about over anything and everywhere.

im sorry but if i had billions of pounds and a fully stocked concrete bunker, i would like to endure a cat 5 storm also.
its just another adventure to the dude.

like him or not doesn,t matter, i wish no one ill.(exceptions are pedophiles, massmurderers etc etc).
especially not for reasons of arrogance or yealousy.
