The petition asked the the Prime Minister to "abandon plans to build
Eco Towns on Greenfield sites."
Guess which words did not appear in Gordon "I saved the world" Brown's answer?
Ok - he does use the word Green, but only in his usual spinning way of "exemplar green developments" - I wondered momentarily if they were being ironic - but that is beyond this lot!
Not once does he address the actual petition, which tells Gordon that by definition a town built on a green field cannot claim to be green. In the same way that upholstering your Toyota Prius with fur from tiger skin and endangered bats means that you cannot claim it to be an 'eco' car - however big its electric motor!
