Paul Sinha Twitter: The Chase star takes SWIPE at Richard Branson after ‘happiness’ post | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


The Chase star Paul Sinha, 49, shared a blog post from Sir Richard Branson, 69, on Virgin Media’s website in which he reflected on his career and life.

“I truly believe that ‘stuff’ really does not bring happiness,” the businessman began.

“Family, friends, good health and the satisfaction that comes from making a positive difference are what really matters.”

The father-of-three then went on to say he “never set out to make money”, before speaking about his investments.

Paul shared the post in view of his 123,000 followers with the caption: “I’ve never heard anything this trite since the last time a train toilet started talking to me.”

Many of Paul’s followers also flocked to his page to share their thoughts.

One user wrote: “Easy to say when you have plenty of ‘stuff’ and make your living by making others believe they also need ‘stuff’.”

A second added: “I suppose it’s easily said when you’ve a couple of billion in the bank.”

“You can only truly be happy with a billion or so in the bank,” a third added.

Richard founded the Virgin Group in the 1970s, which controls more than 400 companies in various fields.

In April 2018, Forbes magazine estimated Richard’s net worth to be a staggering five billion dollars.

Also within Richard’s post, he wrote: “Fortunately, early on in my life I realised that personal ’stuff’ really didn’t matter.

“Joan and I lived on a houseboat and one day it sank. We realised that we missed nothing except our treasured photo albums.”

After highlighting more tragedies, he added: “Times like these really remind you what is truly important in life: family, friends, good health and the satisfaction that comes from making a positive difference are what really matters.”

Discussing his intentions further, he continued: “We want the value created by the Virgin Group to be used to invest in new collaborative approaches to addressing issues, where business, governments and not-for-profits join forces to create a healthy, equitable and peaceful world for future generations to enjoy.

“Nowadays, I spend most of my time working with Virgin Unite and many brilliant partners to help tackle some of the major issues facing the world today including conflict resolution and human rights concerns (The Elders and The Global Commission on Drug Policy), tackling the climate crisis (The Carbon War Room and Rocky Mountains Institute), and conserving the ocean (Ocean Unite and the Ocean Elders).

“This approach to business, where people and planet are prioritised, is further accelerated through our work with The B Team.”

Elsewhere, Paul Sinha embroiled in a Twitter spat regarding the new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55.

Paul suggested Theresa May’s replacement was “the worst thing to happen in his life”.

He wrote: “I’m not saying Boris becoming PM is depressing, but it’s the worst thing to happen in my life in the last two months.”

A Twitter user responded: “Virtue signalling of the highest order by just deciding he’s no good before he’s done a tap wrong or right.”

They went on to say the political news was “also a fantastic opportunity to wind up the snowflakes”, alongside three crying with laughter emojis.

Paul replied: “‘Snowflakes’ and emojis. The twin weapons against actual facts. Great work, great argument.”

The Chase continues tonight at 5pm on ITV.
