    As if somebody would confuse an 08 badge with a football teams badge. As chris says, it'd be a different story if it was something to do with London.

    The health & safety issues surround the fact the badges have sharp pin, and we know any virgin is scared of a pr1ck

    I've never heard such a lot of rubbish in my life. If I worked at Virgin, I'd be extremely annoyed.

    I always wear my 08 Ambassador badge, which I'm very proud of. I'm seeing more and more people all the time wearing the badges and I think it's great that people are getting behind our city.
