I’ve noticed in the past couple of weeks that some of our consumer watchdogs, or their spokespersons at least, have been a bit more vocal than normal.
There’s more soundbites being published, more pithy remarks in response to journalist questions, and the odd radio and tv appearance here and there.
All reactionary! Nothing pro-active at all.
When was the last time you were aware of a consumer campaign being launched in the interests of Irish consumers by either the Consumers Association of Ireland or the National Consumer Agency?
I thought I’d do a little to keep track of what our consumer watchdogs are saying – just in case they might come up with anything interesting. Below, from now on, I’ll update the listing of links with anything that they’re quoted saying in the media.
You never know, we might actually find that they’re looking after our interests, rather than just their own.
