Another award

St Nicholas' market has been awarded the accolade of being the UK's greenest market. And yet the Blogger is strangely silent on the subject.

Good god. What will there be an award for next?

I thought you might want to take some credit for it?

Kerry, just wondered what were your opinions were on Bristol being shortlisted for the Green City award?

Personally I think it's a bit of a joke, considering the quality of the public transport, though I welcome any cycling improvement measures.

St Nics is a great place and deserves the award, which accords with good sense and common experience.

I must agree with Bristol Dave about the Bristol being shortlisted for European Green Capital though. Its a joke, as is Bristol being called the UK's greenest city according to the an index drawn up by Forum for the Future.

Common experience and good sense clearly says that Bristol is a long way both from being relatively green and certainly green in any absolute sense. See:

I think it's a good thing if it focuses attention on the issue and gives the city the aspiration to do better, but I agree there's a long way to go.
