Words we are bound to hear more of: "Greenplating".

Yvette Cooper just said it in parliament.

The Government is introducing Home Information Packs which go beyond the EU's requirement for Energy Performance Certificates. However she claimed: "Its not gold plating, its greenplating."

Uuuuugh. Actually its not "greenplating" - its just idiotic.

As we point out in a study today- if we we spent the money the Government is planning to flush down down the bog on "home energy surveys" on real green policies instead, then we could save 12 million tonnes of CO2 a year.

Yes, she'll be pleased, no doubt, with that soundbite.

I have to say, that the opposition did have the convincing arguments but it's all about the scores on the doors in a democracy and so she wins another day.

Just the Lords and a Judicial Review left to go now.
