UK representing polluters at Earth Summit

Representing the people (who matter): The British government has drawn criticism from environmental groups for its choice of delegates to the Earth Summit. The British delegation includes senior company bosses from companies with records of pollution and human rights violations, including Rio Tinto and Anglo-American. It was also reported on 3RRR this morning that Britain had originally banned its environment minister from the summit for being too independent of Tony Blair's official line, but relented after criticism.
