Talking of heritage protection agencies not protecting heritage (see Heritage Destroyed)……

Recently, speaking of Ireland’s new National Monuments Bill (full title: the Developers’ Rape Enablement Bill) John Gormley, Environment Minister without Conscience (to give him his accurate title) said this:

“Protecting and promoting an appreciation and awareness of Ireland’s unique built heritage while also facilitating continued economic and social development are central tenets of the Bill”

Clever huh? The central tenet, he says, is to protect an appreciation and awareness of Irelands heritage.

A strange choice of wording. Why didn’t he say it is to protect Ireland’s heritage?
