    Default 08 badges banned by Virgin Trains

    08 badges banned by Virgin Trains Mar 30 2007


    ADVERTISING




    VIRGIN Trains staff have been banned from wearing Capital of Culture badges. more

    But they have now been told to remove them after security experts decided they posed a risk on board trains.

    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.

    Mine is firmly attached to my mini (car, just in case you were wondering). Inside on the dash with my 2007 badge.

    I used to climb that tree on the right..."The Helicopter Tree".

    That second badge looks great, I must get one of those.

    Virgin are a godlike company but they should use more of their time to fight Sky instead.

    Hard to say negetive posts about Virgin since they gave me 30 pounds phone credit free when I bought my sony phone. 10 for being loyal to Virgin and 20 with the phone!

    Godlike!

    A car key could be just as much a weapon as a pin on a badge.

    I have seen the badges for sale in the conservation centre if that helps...

    I like virgin...especially virginmedia they have very good broadband and digital...free on demand with the digital ^_^ which i like. I agree with Max...they should spend less time worrying about pinbadges and more about sky.
    I wonder if he'll make me crawl. I wonder how far I might fall. I'm stuck beneath my skin I don't know who to blame for this mess I'm in. Involuntarily falling to my knees another victim of heart disease. Another Night without a dark tunnel, stay in bed so I can't be stolen. And everything revolves around the fear of my fate. Everyday a little closer to death.

    The first one is part of the Ambassador scheme: Click here

    The second? It was a gift.
