[A pylon recently]
“Maybe this isn’t sexy enough for you, but after all the free media you’ve given to the anti-pylons groups, I thought it might be worth sharing my now confirmed suspicions.
Since day one, this anti-pylons campaign has stunk. It’s been my long-held assumption that Fianna Fail have been stoking a rural uprising against the ‘bogey-man pylons’ as a way of slithering their way back into office.
Lo and behold, today they announce that the country’s foremost anti-pylon campaigner is to run for an MEP seat. Subtly (and not so subtly) help him to build his profile, then whack him on the ticket on a populist issue. Just thought you might want to share this with your readers, lest you be complicit in returning a Fianna Fail MEP to the European Parliament. People probably deserve to know when they’ve been played like fiddles.
