Facebook friend and mountainviews member Derek Watters flags up the Newcastle local press article vis-à-vis the meeting to “discuss” the very stupid plan to make the Mourne Mountains a National Park.
This very stupid plan is being touted by NI Environment minster, the normally very unstupid Alex Attwood – which I kind of think suggests he has been briefed badly or with various over-enthusiastic interests at stake.
The gig was hosted by the big eff-off Slieve Donard Hotel.
When you write that into the equation, add normally unstupid Attwood and the general retail excitement that has animated him ….., you kind of know that some (very stupid) parties thought this was a fait accompli – when it was definitely not.
We wonder if this is anything to do with why minister Attwood (if I understand) did not attend.
We hope this experience – plus the other one recently, where he was savaged by farmers and landowners over the subject – presents to him a nicely balanced picture, better qualifying him to address his MI audience in the next few days.
I imagine many mountainviews members will be attending.
