Reply To: an taisce-and rumours of them going bust
it sounds like they don’t want to get rid of their elitist tag at all. it may be the case that mr. conroy had alternative reasons for joining because he is more than likely sick of an taisce objecting to everything everybody tries to do out his side of the country. if he has reasonable arguments surely he is worth listening to. i’m not sure what he hoped to change but possibly to start the debate and have someone from the locality there to argue the case. i wonder does he have any political aspirations.
as far as government money. i feel paul is absolutely right here. they shouldn’t recieve tax-payers money for a seemingly private boys club, that doesn’t let people with different views in. it has to be democratic and open and accountable. the price of living in a democracy i’m afraid.
