Mr. Walsh: Please Come Back!

Posted on: March 10th, 2005

The chief executive of Aer Lingus has left these shores because he did not find the conditions in which he works particularly welcoming to or suitable for the enterprise culture.

There are two important reasons for Willie Walsh’s departure from Aer Lingus and the Minister for Transport should come before the House to discuss the matter. The first of these is the semi-State culture. Mr. Walsh could not work within this culture because it was not enterprising enough and, unfortunately, he left as a result for an equivalent but larger airline in the UK. We could well do with Mr. Walsh returning to Ireland.

Would the multinationals invest in Aer Lingus if the Labour Party’s friends in the trade unions decided who was on the board and who would be chief executive?
