[Brussels, 01/12/2006] European Health Commission Markos Kyprianou will kick off celebrations to mark World AIDS Day this lunchtime with a game of celebrity five-a-side football in the Cinquantenaire Park. Invitees include Charlie McCreevy, Marianne Fischer-Boel and Elton John. Following the game, which begins at midday, Bob Geldof will host a press conference and needle exchange, while experts from the World Health Organisation will be distributing condoms to EU officials at the Berlaymont building. All comers welcome, and invitees are advised to avoid the Schuman Roundabout, where representatives of the Holy See will be demonstrating and fighting with the police.

    I was expecting an invitiation from Margot Wallstrom to join her in the Berlaymonts sauna in honour of World AIDS Day.

    The plan was for a sort of John and Yoko 'love in'.

    She's obviously misplaced my address.
