Privatisation doesn't work

So it seems Privatisation doesn't work. Well not for the people in the South West of Ireland. Aer Lingus' decision to pull a profitable and vital route out of Shannon is proof of the massive flaws of privatization.

The Shannon London route was a vital piece on international infrastructure which has been destroyed for a purely capitalist pursuit of profit. There can be no doubt that there will be hundreds if not thousands of jobs lost in the coming year due to this decision.

Worse still is the silence coming from our government who own a quarter of the airline. Aer Lingus will profit from this decision but the people of Ireland will not. This is raw unrestricted capitalism at its best.

This disaster lies at the feet of Bertie Ahern and Fianna Fail.
