Dublin Airport is a complete and utter shambles. It is because of the shenanigans that are going on between the chairman of Aer Rianta, the Minister for Transport, the unions and the board. Extraordinary alliances are being formed to frustrate the apparent wishes of the Government.
In the meantime, we have complete paralysis at Dublin Airport and paralysis of the aviation system. We do not know whether we are getting pier D, a second terminal or anything else.
In the meantime, Dublin Airport is a shambles. I suggest that if anyone wants to punish President Bush, he or she should ask him to fly into Dublin rather than Shannon this weekend because it would expose the real difficulties we face.
