Irony or hypocrisy?

Is this irony or hypocrisy?

Grey Power has been campaigning against the partial privatisation of a few state assets, among which are a couple of power companies.

It fronted the petition to get a politicians’ initiated referendum on the issue.

But it chose a private company with which to negotiate a deal for its members.

There’s both irony and hypocrisy in that.

    Grey Power I’m afraid are out to protect their own members, to hell with rest. They are right behind the no assets sales but when it comes to commercial advantage they are free marketeers. Shouldn’t have it both ways.
    In many cases these same Grey Power people are screwing the younger folk with huge mortgages etc. These same Grey Power types love the higher interest rates hence so many of them lost money in the finance company collapse.
    I’m of an age to be in Grey Power but will not join because of the self centred approach they have. Grey Power will never be happy.
