The usual bunch of greenies and leftwhingers have set up the "Worst EU Lobbying Awards".
My entry: Friends of the Earth Europe for the following reason:
"For the financial year 2007, Friends of the Earth Europe gratefully acknowledges funding from:
EU DG Environment, EU DG Employment & Social Affairs, EU DG Development,"
They pay FoE Europe so that FoE Europe can lobby them.
Given that FoE Europe is one of the organisers of the awards I don\’t expect that to make the shortlist.
But it should.
In fact, it should win by a mile, not that it will.
Do add your own of course.
