Hello LearnEnglish Team,

Sir Richard says "screw it". I know that it's used when someone is angry, but what does Sir Richard means here? Thank you. : )

Hi Pocoyo,

That's right - this expression is often used to express anger, but here Branson uses it in a different way. Here and in other cases it means something like "I don't care what happens or what other people think". I think what he means is that we should all do the work that we want to and not worry about what other people say.

Best wishes,

Hi Kirk,

Thank you! : )

Peter, there is no sound? what am i doing wrong?

Hi Liliya,

I've just checked and I was able to hear the sound, so I think it might be a problem on your end. Are you able to hear other videos on LearnEnglish? What about on other websites?

Best wishes,
