I find it a bit odd that everyone (well, government, car manufacturers) are so against more stringent fuel enconomy. Surely if you spend less money on fuel/energy, then that's a good thing? It strikes me that using less power for transport, heating, cooling etc. is a win-win for businesses. Oh well.
Incidentally, someone here without a proper job got a bee in her bonnet about the number of plastic cups we get through. I did try to advance the argument that petrochemicals tied up in plastic cups weren't being burnt and contributing to global warming.
At last, a new holiday year. And a four-day weekend coming up to celebrate capital punishment.
Was reading something somewhere. In a commentary on modern UKian TV, this guy pointed out that a few years ago, we had programmes that mocked Japanese TV programmes where contestants had to eat live insects etc. Now we're making these programmes ourselves. Hmm.
I think something almost happened in yesterday's Heroes.
I have what I think is a great political idea: people are really hacked off with the current political parties. So, encourage more people to stand for parliament. Things could get interesting if you had a couple of hundred independents. I also think the deposit for a parliamentary election should be lowered again. IIRC, Thatcher put it up to £1,000.
