  1. Well it'd better not be some pissy lager like Carling then Injin Anyway, why would you not want us to reduce the damage we do to this planet, mainly as a result of unnecessary overconsumption?
  2. Apols - the link http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/busi...icle6445954.ece Can't edit into OP yet for some reason.

  11. I predict they get pretty worked up with furious clapping and occasional boo-type noises.
