Michael O’Leary’s tips to endear yourself to the London press corps: #1 the Germany shirt

O'Leary Germany shirt.jpgYes two days after Germany inflicted the biggest World Cup defeat in England’s history, dumping them out of the tournament in the process, Michael O’Leary conducted a press conference in London today in a German football shirt. It originated after German investors first bet O’Leary would not wear the shirt at a German investor briefing, and then bet him he would not wear it at a London press conference - which is a like a red rag to a bull. And good of the English football team to so obligingly help set up the joke by losing so convincingly.
