The European Parliament yesterday hosted an enormous jamboree called the Energy Globe Awards. Luminaries such as Bollywood star Amir Khan, and Italian confectioner Zucchero turned up to pontificate on global warming and so on.

On the stage was this vast representation of the prizes. It is 25ft tall. But note the two deliberate mistakes.

Firstly the prize for this greenery-yallery event is a representation of a light bulb. Yup, you got it, not an green friendly recyclable mecury containing light bulb, but one of those nasty, wasteful old fashioned incandescent bulbs.

Then take a look at the insert. It appears that most Southern and South Eastern Europe is falling off.

Not encouraging that.
