The EU in its most tree hugging wisdom has decided that incandescent light bulbs are to be phased out by 2011. So I’m down to my last 4 bulbs. From now on, unless suppliers in Lymington get stocks I’ll have to start moving to Eco-bulbs. These may ultimately save the planet but saints preserve us, the new bulbs are s**t. I really don’t want to read books in yellow, candle light. At my age I need motorway white, retina searing 100w brightness not tree-hugger beige.
So maybe i’ll have to start behaving like a neo-Armish survivalist. I’ll start swapping 100w bulbs for crack in the local parks, bringing in a few thousand bulbs from Jersey under cover of night. Until then man the barricades, repel boarders, take to the streets.
