Top Bureaucratic Speed

Moving at top bureaucratic speed, now:

The top European Union negotiator said support was building for a proposal to hold a pair of international seminars next year to discuss additional measures to reduce climate change after 2012, when the landmark agreement ends.
Let's put it in point form:
  • support is building ... the level of which is as yet indeterminate

  • when they get enough support they'll ... hold some more seminars!

  • when those seminars take place ... they'll talk some more

  • the things they talk about (if the support bone actually connects to the seminar bone) will tell them what to recommend ... in 8 years time.
This is what people do when they're posturing and don't truly believe in their own cause. Wine & cheese, anyone?
