    Default European Commission isn't happy with us

    Apparently they have sent a letter to the UK government due to the high levels of air pollution in 16 cities in the UK. If the UK government doesn't take action within 2 months we, like 4 other countries, will be taken to the European court of Justice. linky

    Where a 5 year trial will ensue and we'll be fined a stupid amount and the paper pushers at Whitehall will pay it. Not like the French, who still haven't paid their fine over not selling British Beef.

    Soon the UK ruling classes will be free from the shackles of EU regulations to pollute as they please.

    There again if we'd ignored them and sided with the Yanks we wouldn't be in this mess now (CO2 pollution is nothing compared to the NOx toxins) which surely had nothing to do with German Car manufacturers pushing their new 'clean' diesel cars eh?
