Irish CEO Gives Speech Reminiscent of John Galt at EU Summit

Thu, December 22, 2011
YouTube, European Commission
Dateline:EU

"This is the first time I think that I or Ryanair have ever been invited to a conference by the European Union. Because as most of you know, the European Union spends most of its time suing me, torturing me, criticizing me or condemning me for lowering the cost of air travel..." said CEO Michael O’Leary.

And, without a doubt, the last time.

I don't think he really cares but he did make some good points.

I see stupid things like the airport story in my own company.
