AnhonyDunn, I think your probably right. However, maybe, just maybe, because the government will not take on the unions does not mean that a business cannot do it. I imagine if he did other business and the government of France would (quietly) back him. Everybody thought Murdoch would lose with the print unions when he moved lock stock and barrel to Wapping, but he won in the end. However I accept it is a high risk strategy and would be too much for IAG stock holders, me included. Looks like LH then!
