Forget concessions canard - Aer Lingus bid is hostile takeover
Attempts by the executives of both Aer Lingus and British Airways/IAG to present the takeover as a done deal have gone on far too long.
The takeover of Aer Lingus by British Airways/IAG is not in the Irish national interest, is anti-competitive and anti-consumer. T
