Bang on the money.The man is beyond boring and a parody of himself.
By the way, when will some journalist with an ounce of wit ask him why he is happy to suck on the t1t of the publicly subsidised horse racing industry?
I wonder if he is willing to have "Yellow Pack" lawyers represent him in cases where he could lose money.Bang on the money.
Did you ever notice that he spends much of his time threatening legal action against airports, aviation authorities and other such bodies ? Strange thing is that, when cases end up in court, he doesn't represent himself. No, he employs people from the legal profession to do so. Can you imagine the whingeing he'd have if the judge told him that he was guaranteed a fair hearing and there was no need for him to have anything to do with those nasty lawyers and barristers ?
Yet, when it comes to his staff being represented by a union ....
Some of us remember the Aer Lingus monopoly on travel out of Ireland before Ryanair. It cost as much to fly to London 40 years ago as it costs to fly to New York today.O'Leary knows about North Korea seeing how he runs Ryanair & wanted a monopoly on Irish air travel.
How much they may be paid is one thing but there it does embrace a public service requirement. Turning the dial so to speak or flicking into the the TV alternatives shows an absence of a key ingredient of broadcasting - quality.I am perfectly free to refrain from giving O'Leary my business. I can get good fares elsewhere because of his business model so i don't have to add a cent to his wealth.
I wish I had the same kind of freedom when it came to RTE and its overpaid hacks. We are their indentured servants. They compulsory confiscate our hard-earned money in order to over-pay themselves. They plan to extend their theft to people who don't even have a television as soon as they find an sufficiently obedient minister. Alex White didn't last long enough to do it for them and for that we can be grateful.
It's time to let RTE die. It serves no useful function. Of course we will also need to introduce media ownership laws to dismantle the current near-monopoly in the private media sector.
Not hated by everyone. Only the left leaning luvvies in rte, and their pals.He lives here, pays his taxes here, refuses to accept honorary doctorates and has never been called to appear before a tribunal of inquiry. Of course he's hated.
What's that got to do with O'Leary?
40 years ago, everyone who had a job in Aer Lingus could buy a home, get married and rear a family. What percentage of those working for Ryanair can do that? The Irish are a dying race because of genocidal scum like O'Leary.
He runs a successful airline. That's it. He hasn't a clue about the health service and he shouldn't be running his mouth about it. Fine Gael letting him run his mouth about it and applauding him says it all, the main government party, traitors to the citizens of Ireland.Not quite.
Ryanair was on its knees when O'leary arrived. Aer lingus were about to choke it to death to protrct the union dominated state monopoly hen he turned it around and saw them off.
