It’s official. Today Britain is a darker place to live in . We’ve known for some time that the Fourth Reich wanted to plunge this country back into darkness – and now they’ve achieved it!
They banned the 100 watt incandescent lightbulb – I have a secret store, but don’t tell anyone – and know they’ve banned the 60 watt as well. I shall be out later today buying up all the old stock at my local supermarket.
And it seems I’m not alone. The newspapers have been reporting that Britons have been buying up these things like they’re going out of fashion! (Oops! They are though aren’t they?). Just take a look at the internet and see how many sellers have been stockpiling the bloody things and now hope to make a killing.
So why is this happening? Well, it’s all to do with global warming, apparently. This is a subject, you will have gathered, that gets right up my nose. See yesterday’s post for example. Well, that’s cobblers. It’s about control. It’s about authoritarianism. It’s about killing off democracy.
Nobody much likes these things. They take time to warm up, give off an inferior or often yellowing light, they’re expensive and many can’t be used with a dimmer switch. I have seven dimmer switches in my house if you count the four bedside ones that are touch sensitive and work on three levels.
But we have to have them because Brussels says so. It really doesn’t matter what the people of this country want. It’s a glowing example (sorry for the pun!) of this country being told what to do by foreigners. It’s the democratic wishes of the people of this country being over-ruled and ignored. It’s all that bad about the EU.
And the worse thing is that this government doesn’t have the balls to represent it’s electorate and just tell Brussels to sod off!…
