Why The Flip, EirGrid?
After repeatedly promising to specifically respond to individual concerns raised in the 35000(+) submissions regarding the GridLink Project, EirGrid have, after months and months of waiting, issued a one-size-fits-all response. The only piece of original writing is the addressee’s inserted name.
The beginning of this template-response recognises this contradiction:
“Every submission was examined and treated separately to ensure that all of the feedback provided by members of the public was properly understood and evaluated.
I am attaching a short document which sets out EirGrid’s response to the key themes that emerged during the public consultation.”
The Collins dictionary definition of “self-contradictory” is as follows:
“If you say or write something that is self-contradictory, you make two statements which cannot both be true.”
Yup, that’s about the size of it.
