Aw geeze, those poor delegates who’ve flown to Danmark to save the world from people like them have really come a cropper – there aren’t enough limousines to ferry them around!
On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the “summit to save the world”, which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.
“We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention,” she says. “But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report.”
Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. “We haven’t got enough limos in the country to fulfill the demand,” she says. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.”
Remember, children, these are really serious people dealing with a really, really serious problem. As Jesus himself said of them, “by their works shall ye know them” (in Aramaic, of course, but still….)
