CharlesJones – You do not need to rely on the media – it has been established (twice) before a court of law that BASSA and CC89 did not co-operate with the company and their savings were not what they claimed and they were only temporary savings that had to be paid back. If BA wants a loan, it can just go to a bank.
The constant rehashing of outright lies and half-truths to justify BASSA’s actions and ignorance of any arguments against BASSA has been a constant leitmotif of this dispute.
As for the ludicrous claim that this whole dispute is an orchested war by “Walsh” against the workforce and an attempt to pit pilots against cabin crew, this is sheer fantasy. The near pathological obsession some in BASSA have about “Walsh” and the pilots (why single out one workgroup?) is remarkable, as are the attempts at post-event rationalisation.
NB. CallMeIshmael – I think you mean Kegworth, not Knebworth.
