Compo: A Suitable Sentence For Clegg

Seems as though Cliché Cleggy is feeling frustrated at the lack of a catchy green slogan: from the Grauniad

Clegg told the meeting of cabinet ministers they were failing to get across its message that it was "the greenest government ever" because it raises taxes [sic], and that a form of words needed to be found - there is a view the government has been successful on the deficit because they agreed a line and stuck to it. Some civil servant is busy now working up a sentence that encapsulates what the government is doing on green growth.

So - your drafts, please, for a single sentence that does the green business for clueless Clegg.

Prizes next week.

I'm still an ignorant green politician, but by the time hell freezes I might mature into a statesman.

If we don't go green, we'll go blue.

'Go green or our funding and vote share is more fucked than it already is'.

OT - apparently Jonny Ball's been getting proper personal abuse because he's a climate skeptic. Also, David Bellamy ain't had any work for yonks for the same reason. Is it possible that for people of a certain age, these guys have been silenced because, a bit like David Attenborough, what these guys say, goes. If Jonny Ball says something's bollox then that's me making a cup of tea and sitting down for half an hour checking what the dude's got to say. Outrageous.
