Virgin Media Declares Net Neutrality “A Load Of Bollocks”

The CEO of Virgin Media is proving that aside from being a typical greedy-as-all-get-out-corporate-goon, he apparently doesn’t have any functioning brain cells dedicated to logical thought.

That’s because he’s also quoted as saying that he’s already doing deals to deliver some people’s content faster than others… If you aren’t prepared to cough up the extra cash, he says he’ll put you in the Internet ‘bus lane.’

I am not a hamster, I get that this guy’s only priority in life is to line his pockets and make sure that all of his mansions have everything he could ever imagine thinking about wanting. Right down to the inexhaustible supply of pool floats.

It’s unfortunate because if his brain were actually firing on all cylinders he’d know that not only is Net Neutrality a reality that isn’t going away, there’s still work being done on legislation that will carve it into law. On the other hand, it’ll be fun to watch his bubble burst.
