Ban the bulb

When I read this thismorning, the first thing that came into my head, was the initial outlay. Even a small house might require ten or more bulbs. 300.00 is far too much for many households to find, even if bought over a period of weeks or months.

If the government are serious about reducing electricity usage, perhaps these bulbs should be subsidised.

If we all just wear one of these, then we will only have light where and when we need it.

sure, they're often not quite as bright and take a little longer to get started, but equally they don't fail nearly so often so I don't need to spend so much time standing on a chair

Is this a reference to frisky old folks ?  :o
