A bad decision made by someone un-named at Virgin Trains has been sensibly overturned by the firm’s owner, Sir Richard Branson.

The bad decision was to stop offering Virgin’s travelling customers the Daily Mail on the basis that some Virgin staff had been upset by the paper’s editorial positions on such issues as immigration, unemployment and LGBT rights, and felt that people shouldn’t be exposed to them whilst riding on Virgin.

Following accusations of censorship Branson took the view that his company “should not ever be seen to be censoring what our customers read or influencing their freedom of choice, nor moralising on behalf of others”.
