Thanks, but no thanks

By | March 28, 2009

From “Low-priced Nano taps into Indians’ aspirations“, The Christian Science Monitor:
That could be problematic for the company, which made some big-ticket purchases – including the troubled Jaguar and Land Rover brands – during the height of the economic boom. The company also failed to get many Nanos off the assembly line before launch, thanks to protests that caused the company to relocate a factory.

In this context, “thanks to” is not appropriate. The sentence should have been written as: “The company also failed to get many Nanos off the assembly line before launch, due to protests that caused the company to relocate a factory.”
