Why believe him?

Michael O'Leary has announced Ryanair are pulling out of Belfast City Airport.  The excuse given is the process over the runway extension.  This seems to have been accepted at face value with some using it as a predictable platform to start criticising the Executive.

One keen twitterer has pointed out a number of recent actual and threatened withdrawals by Ryanair from airports - example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4, example 5.  The consistent thing between these and the Belfast story is how it is always someone else's fault but Ryanair's and unrelated to a decline in passenger numbers.  All of them could be found with a quick google.

When a man tells you he is:

"An obnoxious little bollocks... a gobshite."

And according to an independent review operates an unethical business, why would anyone believe a word he says?
