RE: Air Traffic Controllers Actions and Government's Response
PERHAPS G.E. Tunnel, Cas Catala Nou should ask himself this question: If this industrial action had taken place on say August' - height of tourist season/time of Governmental holiday - would Zapatero's response have been the same? I doubt it.
They (the air traffic controllers) chose the busiest Spanish Bank Holiday time - when those most inconvenienced by their actions were Spaniards.
It would have been political suicide for Sr Zapatero, not to intervene. Cynical, but true.
Yours sincerely, M. Irving
