Flag drag

The BBC reports research which has established that a part-time patriot mounting two 'England' flags on his (I'd guess it's mainly a male thing) car reduces fuel efficiency by 3%.  If 500,000 idiots, er, drivers do so, that's an additional 2.8 million kg of carbon dioxide emissions* from 1.22 million additional litres of fuel expended during the football world cup.

Plus they look ****ing stupid.

*: What's the time interval? Per annum, pro rata? Per tournament? There's a big difference between the two, but the central point remains: each vehicle will be emitting one metric shedload of CO2 unnecessarily.
