The Greens slam EU
« on: April 29, 2007, 05:51:08 AM »
A report from the green party shows that the European Parliaments monthly farcical move between Brussels and Strasberg costs the environment over 20,000 tonnes of extra CO2 per year.

So not only does the farce cost an estimated ?200M per year (plus all those expenses that don?t require receipts or proof), it is extremely damaging to the environment.

Well, no surprises there then ? oh except that nobody seems to care about it or even think it has any importance, choosing instead to warn us of the dangers of keeping energy-gobbling TV?s switched to standby overnight. In fact, try finding this story in the media today?

Best I could manage was this link on the BBC site.

THE GRAVY TRAIN
T'was in the year of '89 on that old Great Western line,
When the winter wind was blowin' shrill,
The rails were froze, the wheels were cold, then the air brakes wouldn't hold,
And Number 9 came roaring down the hill -- oh!

The gravy train came down the track and she blew,
The gravy train came down the track and she blew,
The gravy train came down the track, her whistle wide and her throttle back,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt and she blew,
The engineer said the train must halt -- he said it was all the fireman's fault,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The fireman said he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said he rang the bell and she blew,
The fireman said he rang the bell -- the engineer said "You did like hell!"
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright and she blew,
The porter got an awful fright -- he got so scared he near turned white,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

A donkey was standing in the way and she blew,
A donkey was standing in the way and she blew,
A donkey was standing in the way and all they found was just his bray,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The conductor said there'd be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there'd be a wreck and she blew,
The conductor said there'd be a wreck and he felt the chills run up his neck,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.

The gravy train went over the hill and she blew,
The gravy train went over the hill and she blew,
The gravy train went over the hill and the last we heard she was going still,
And she blew, blew, blew, blew, blew.
