In these turbulent times, fear of flying is just a load of bull

The Russian air force has invaded our air space without so much as paying a cent of rent. We'll boycott vodka, on Mondays. And stick out our tongues at 'em, up from under the flight path.

The Government are thinking of selling off Aer Lingus, although I doubt very much if the deal will close. We the people will only receive about 11 times more than the Aer Lingus management from the sale and there's a lot more of us.

It's all turbulence these days. We will deal here with the passengers on the plane rather than the men who own the planes. The man sitting next me on the Ryanair last Sunday was nervous. Eamonn from Galway was in the foetal position at take-off.
