"More than 11,000 pupils together with staff and parents across Kent and Somerset are celebrating today," Kent County Council's press office gushed somewhat improbably about the new virtual EAZ.
"Slough's children are celebrating today," chipped in Slough Borough Council's PR team. Over in east London, the fireworks were more muted: there, we learned, only "Labour councillors in Hackney are celebrating the Government's decision" (courtesy Hackney Labour group).
Frankly, the Diary would be astonished if a single child or local councillor could be seen dancing for joy at the prospect of an EAZ. If you've seen one, tell us. No, send us a photo.
