I was speaking to a friend yesterday who spent some time in the company of some Norwich Green activists over the previous days. My friend is thinking of getting married abroad and received a broadside from them about his suggestion that he might get married abroad. Her argument was, of course, that this would leave a high carbon footprint.
It's strange though to think that this Green activist has lived and worked in Russia, South America, indeed there is hardly a corner of the world that this Green has not travelled too. Indeed if we were counting carbon footprints, I'd find it hard to emulate this particular Green if I travelled abroad for my holidays for the rest of my life. But still they seek to restrict how we live our lives.
Of course, she's not alone. A delve in to the history of any number of Green's in Norwich shows a taste for foreign travel on a scale that many of us can only dream of.
Greens and hypocrisy .., goes together like Tories and sleaze of Labour and incompetence.
I'll await the response from everyone for what Lib Dems goes with.
