Reply To: Coup d’Etat in An Taisce?
Six people was too many though, four contributors would have allowed for a more comprehensive and focused debate, and considering anyone with the slightest interest in this issue was largely concerned with what Frank had to say, it was a shame he didn’t have enough time other than to largely defend AT.
If householders were still paying rates, this issue would be a lot different – the idea that people would be paying for the supplying of water and maintance of roads for others to live in their ‘fancy piles in the hills’ would get the rent-a-crowd and bin charges lobby out like a shot.
And many of these one-off people are the same ones complaining about the centralisation of hospital services and centres of excellence, and how difficult it will be to get to them.
If people were living reasonably close together, infrastructure servicing these areas could be improved dramatically.
