All big entrepreneurs have the stink of unpopularity around them. Whether it is through envy or sincere distaste, Donald Trump, James Goldsmith, Rupert Murdoch, Robert Maxwell and Richard Branson have all become popular figures of hate.

Richard Branson“All big entrepreneurs have the stink of unpopularity around them. Whether it is through envy or sincere distaste, Donald Trump, James Goldsmith, Rupert Murdoch, Robert Maxwell and Richard Branson have all become popular figures of hate.”August 1990Document:Tiny Rowland – portrait of the bastard as a rebel
Keenie Meenie Services“The new company first struck gold in Oman where Walker landed a lucrative contract to train and supervise the special forces of the new sultan. He had just deposed his despotic father in a bloodless coup which was led by two British SAS veterans who had personally confronted the old sultan in his palace and told him he must go. The KMS contract was a million-dollar thank-you from the new sultan, and it effectively established KMS as a permanent military presence in the Middle East, giving British intelligence a foot in the door of a country which has become strategically vital during the Gulf War.”1988
