One’s partially responsible for polluting the environment, the other’s responsible for highlighting environmental issues to the world in An Inconvenient Truth. But still that didn’t stop Richard Branson and Al Gore sharing the stage, and acting like bestest buddies, at last night’s frankly fantastic Virgin Media launch event (shame the TV ads starring Uma Thurman are so annoying).
For me the undoubted highlight was a live performance from Blondie. OK so Debbie Harry, Chris Stein et al may look well past their best, but they still sounded fantastic. I even got close enough to touch Debbie’s hand. So that’s it I’m never washing it ever again. Thanks Richard. It was a great night.
