Revenge of the Consumers Association of Ireland?

I thought, when I was reading Dermott Jewells news section of the March Consumer Choice published by the CAI, that they were laughing at me 🙁

Maybe they haven’t been too happy with the way I’ve been commenting on their activities recently. But when you read the full story, the headline makes a whole lot more sense. I think!

    Ahem! I think they are laughing at you! That story has nothing whatsoever to do with the heading.

    Not only is it exceptionally badly written, it is practically incoherent. But then that comes as no great surprise.

    ValueIreland – do you really think these people have the time to even read what you have to saysbiut them here?
    Never mind have the inclination to waste time and space to make obtuse references to you in their magazine.

    Des, the busy, busy people at CAI have no time to visit the valueirealand web site. Too much time collecting fees and expenses from the quangos. Might be worth their while. Have you had a look at their pathetic web site. I’d guess VI has more readers that the 4,500 members of the CAI.

    Talking of the March CC issue, I note a glowing article on Comreg. The wraparound on the cover seems to have a paid ad for… have guessed it…Comreg. No note about a slight conflict of interest.

    Maybe VI should sponsor the wraparound and get a free glowing article…

    Paddy19 – I looked at the CAI website and indeed it is basic and unchanging – but what puzzles me is how the chief executive officers report says the work of the Chair and officers is voluntary. he makes a big point about that.

    but the Irish Times says they get and keep personally fees from representing consumers on state boards.

    Not my definition of voluntary!
