UK 'tops energy wasters league'

UK 'tops energy wasters league'. Great, isn't it? We're also the fattest, worst binge drinkers, have the most anti-social behaviour, most congested roads with longest commuting times, the least job security etc etc. In fact, it's quite interesting to put 'uk worst in europe' and 'uk best in europe' into google and compare the results. We have the best roadworks, apparently!

That's quite an interesting little experiment. Much seems to be made of the fact that we're best in Europe for... part-time working. Perhaps not surprisingly, though, we're the worst in Europe for job security.
