Another example of TF's legendary decision making

Apology sinks AirAsia sharess

Shares in AirAsia have pared back some of their losses after falling nearly 10% on Monday morning in Kuala Lumpur.

The plunge followed an apology by AirAsia's boss Tony Fernandes for publicly backing the ousted government of Najib Razak.

Days before the election on 9 May, he released a video supporting Mr Najib and had an AirAsia aircraft painted with a slogan for the ruling government.

But in a Facebook video posted on Sunday, he said he "buckled at the crucial moment in our history. It wasn't right and I will forever regret it."

Shares in the Malaysian-based budget airline are down 5% in late trading.

He is a minority shareholder. Selling up does not change who owns us or that he may continue as Chairman

He was put in a very difficult position.

If he had turned Najib Razak down and he had then won the election, it probably wouldn’t have ended well for TF or AirAsia.

That POV doesn't fit in with the OP's blind hatred though. Boo Tony. :roll:

A bold statement there. Do you think there'd be much of a queue to buy in to a lower mid-table Championship club, with a poor infrastructure,running at a sizeable loss, and with an FFP fine hanging over its head that could pose an existential threat ?

I'm not saying it would be impossible to find someone, but we might be better off with the devil we know at this point.

The Malaysian elections ended very differently to all the predictions and in fairness to TF, I think he was damned whatever he did.

Malaysian politics is very different from other "democracies" and is riddled with corruption and bullying so I suspect he was probably put in an impossible position by Najib, so it was a case of backing the most likely winner.
