Michael O’Leary may benefit from fixed-price shares after 50.5% remuneration approval

Almost half of Ryanair shareholders have voted against a controversial new pay package for the chief executive, Michael O’Leary, that could result in the airline handing him a €100m (£89m) bonus within five years.

A wafer-thin majority, 50.5%, approved the remuneration report at Ryanair’s annual meeting in Dublin, which means O’Leary could land the extraordinary windfall despite widespread shareholder dissent.

It is rumoured Boris Johnson wants to revive an old idea to break the Brexit impasse

After three years of debate and negotiation there is little new under the sun when it comes to Brexit. But it is rumoured in Westminster, and hoped in Brussels, that Boris Johnson is to revert to a Northern Ireland-only backstop as he seeks to move past the Brexit impasse and avoid breaking his word and extending the UK’s membership beyond 31 October.

marxism in ireland
Musicians who play traditional Irish music are being arrested on the streets because traditional dance and folk music is labeled as xenophobic toxic discourse signifying a supremacist ideology of coded racism intended to normalize native nationalism and incite hateful prejudice on the grounds of race, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origin, and religious belief. This political protocol has already been publicly endorsed by Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin, Labour, Solidarity-PBP, the Green Party and the Workers’ Party. Nobody can stand for election in Ireland without signing and publicly endorsing the protocol.

The EU is controlled by dedicated Marxists who use Critical Theory, Post-Modernism and Political Correctness, as a system of mind-control designed to manipulate and distort morality in a way which defeats resistance to a collectivized borderless world run as a single administrative unit of global feudalism, po...
