What's in a name?

There was an interesting fringe meeting earlier named “Fighting Climate Change: The EU and Copenhagen” – don’t stop reading, I promise it’s interesting.

The chair opened by dissecting Labour’s poor showing in the recent European elections – adding that the idea was that the dire results would form a key part of the meeting's discussion.

He then admitted that the reason they had included climate change in the title of the event was because they didn’t want to have a meeting called “What Went Wrong in The European Elections?”

The honesty was actually rather endearing.

Are you sure that the reason isn't that every day has to have a climate change related meeting and no-one else today would rename theirs?

If you're in need of a decent pub near the seafront then the Lion and Lobster serves a decent pint .. .. ..
