London - (Disaster Mess): Richard Branson has been warned that his £100,000 McCann legal defence fund will bomb in the same way as his Jet Convulsion Lab off-plan Virgin Intergalactic Shuttle which crashed into to Mojave desert in July this year, causing untold carnage and several fatalities.
"Branson's a spineless New Labour tosser who thinks nothing of manipulating the media," Lincoln's Inn legal sources said today.
"The McCanns must be either desperate or congenitally stupid to accept so much as a Mexican peso from this mobster poseur whose Serious Fraud Squad file takes up as much room as JK Rowling's."
Earlier this year Branson donated a reported £200,000 to the McCann's self-publicity fund as well as free flights to their high-profile televised cringefest with the Pope.
But disastrous events in the Mojave desert co-incided with this flash publicity when his rocket prototype exploded, killing three engineers and seriously wounding many more.
"Maybe his dumbass so-called maverick genius aerospace designer Burt Rutan is in charge of advising him on the McCanns as well as developing the Virgin Intergalactic Shuttle, astute London PR sources pondered aloud today.
