In an internal note to staff, Virgin Trains wrote: "Different viewpoints are often valuable, and it's certainly true that we choose to take our news from different sources depending on our view of the world".

Pro-Trump editorials and a host of public policy differences are too much for the founder of the Virgin Group to handle.

The Daily Mail slammed Richard Branson for ending the sale of the United Kingdom newspaper on the billionaire's Virgin Trains following staff complaints about its editorial stance on issues including LGBT rights and immigration.

Virgin Trains has stopped stocking copies of the Daily Mail in its on-board shops after staff complained about the paper's stance on immigration, gay rights and unemployment.

In the past the Daily Mail "has been highly critical of the controversy surrounding a Government bailout of Virgin Trains East Coast", says HuffPostUK.

A statement from Virgin Trains also reads: "We've decided that this paper is not compatible with the [Virgin Trains] brand and our beliefs".

Wikipedia has marked The Daily Mail as an "unreliable" source for stories and has banned its thousands of volunteer contributors from using the paper or the Mail Online as a source for facts after its volunteers decided that the 120-year-old newspaper was "unreliable" and that other sources should be cited.

The Society of Editors has also said it is concerned about the decision taken by Virgin Trains as it "smacks of censorship". But they will no longer be reading it courtesy of VT.

Referencing the fact that the company's decision was outlined by the in-house magazine of rail trade union ASELF, the spokesperson added: "It is equally rich that Virgin chose to launch this attack on free speech in the ASLEF trade union journal".

Sales of the paper have been banned on the company's West Coast trains in apparent protest over its editorial position on immigration and LGBT rights.

The move from Virgin follows on from a dispute between the Daily Mail and Paperchase after the retailer pulled a promotion from Mail's front page following social media complaints from customers.
