Travel, travel

According to Open Europe, the French newspaper Liberation looks at the huge preparation and cost involved in hosting the EU Presidency.

It notes that even the non-obligatory, “informal” meeting of ministers cost between 1.2 and 2 million euros.

Would Osborne and Cameron set an example by taking one flight a year?

And - closer to earth - how green is the UK government's policy to make us travel further to hospital? Not to mention Brighton's policy of abolishing neighbourhood schooling (in pursuit of social engineering)?
