Global waste


As Toronto is preparing to host the G8 and G20 summits this month, there is a huge outcry about the cost involved: C$1.1bn. The bulk of this (C$933m) will be spent on security but they are also spending C$2m on a fake lake (at a site which is only a few hundred yards from Lake Ontario) together with canoes, a dock, deckchairs, a bar and, of course, a large screen showing the World Cup!

What is the point of all the security? Arguably, we should just let them be attacked - it might make them think a bit more about the real world...And happy birthday dear WW.

Give them each a gun and let them get on with it! Thank you, KL!

Disgusting in these hard times. Why can't they just do it by video-conferencing anyway?
