Hands off Aer Lingus
Congratulation to the Sinn Féin councillors in Dublin who were successfull in building a cross party coalition to halt the government's plans to sell off Aer Lingus. This is a great victory for those who oppose the continuing privatisation of our nation's assests. The last thing Ireland needs is another privitised airline where the rights and needs of the workers are ignored in the hunt to squeeze out every last euro of profit. Aer Lingue is one of the great symbols of Ireland and I'm glad that councillors from across the party divide have made the right decision to keep it in public ownership.
