Branson campaigns for Northern Rock

Richard-Branson boasted today that his Virgin empire has created a "winnable package" to take control of Northern-Rock.
"I believe it's the best option because we would re-brand it the Virgin-Bank, which is a very strong brand ... We feel we have a winnable package." Said Brandson.
As Alistair-Darling prepares to unveil the plan to MPs, Branson used his place on the prime minister's high profile Far-East trip to intensify his campaign.
The prime-minister said: "I haven't spoken in any detail to Richard Branson. The commercial decisions are not a matter for me."
