I would have expected a Green run council to pick up this award, not a council run by those horrible Facist, Nartsy, earth raping, kitten strangling Tories. Strange days.

It's not a general environmental award - it's an award for organisations that have done most to implement the government's watered-down "Green Deal" and "Energy Companies Obligation". Last I heard these schemes were not recognised by environmentalists as amounting to very much at all.

It was a valid enough organisation for BHCC to be associated with it in 2012 Source:- http://www.brighton-
hove.gov.uk/content/
housing/general-hous
ing/green-deal:-

"The council used part of its Green Deal Pioneer Places funding to install up to £10,000-worth of home-energy improvements in 10 Brighton & Hove households throughout the city and carry out 100 Green Deal assessments — at no cost to residents."

or are the BHCC Green administration just 'Grant-tarts'?

You and some of those with time on their hands should do a little research into governments green deal. It has been an unmitigated disaster and set back the refurbishment of the UK housing stock by years.

Perhaps Brighton and Hove greens could be in for another environmental reward. For recycling perhaps? Oops no, rates falling and around half comparable cities.....

Yep, no chance this year. Might be a different story by the end of the year though - communal recycling rolled-out and the new refuse and recycling vehicles we've ordered on the roads.

Here's hoping. If recycling rises, it's game over for Labour. Their popularity in the city has fallen tremendously since a high point last year.

Well I'm very happy if it's game over for Labour, however, I will be ecstatic if its game over for the useless sneering green slime zealots as well. In fact I'll even accept a labour council if it gets the green slime out
