Better the public focus their attention on some obscure state body rather than on the rights or wrongs of development.
I mean we don't want people sitting down and asking why prices continue to rise, why land is released in staggered phases thereby keeping prices high, won't our local authorities end up increasing our service charges in the future to provide services to badly planned development, etc. No sirree ! Just feed the public a few emotional sad planning stories and cast An Taisce as the baddy.
Its working too. Just look at how emotional the people got on this thread against An Taisce. Show that same enthusiasm when election time comes round and you might actually chnage something.
