The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Bright idea?

Apparently the All Party Group on climate change are going to recommend that in an effort to encourage the use of energy efficient bulbs, taxes on those which are less efficient should gradually rise.

So a pensioner can soon look forward to paying more for their light bulbs - along with increases in electrcity prices.

Now here's a bright idea... why don't we look at ways of producing energy efficient light bulbs cheaper - and encourage their use that way....

    Mmmhhh, energy efficent bulbs work out cheaper in the long run. I bought three cheap ones for a pond last week and two of the three have already blown. Not entirely relevant i grant you i just wanted to share my irritation
