Michael O'Leary loses Ryanair all Muslim customers with burka ban
And here we are, in the echoes of his call for a ban on the burka in the UK because he thinks that everyone is "leaning over far too much for some of these minority religions".
He said: "I think we should ban burkas here in the UK. If you go to Saudi Arabia and they say the ladies have to veil up, you respect the local culture. If you want to come and live in Western society, I don’t think you should be allowed to walk around with some inalienable right to cover yourself up with only your eyes looking out."
He wasn't done there either. Seeing as he was getting things off his chest, he turned his attentions to climate change. Unsurprisingly, he doesn't believe in it: "Temperatures have been moving up and down for 200 years yet every time you have a couple of warm summers they go — “Oooh, global warming’."
"There’s a degree of arrogance in thinking that any man-made phenomenon is going to change nature. Trying to reverse it by taxing air travel is absurd. We should encourage more driving and flying around because that kind of economic activity is what generates great wealth."
Here we go again...
