A nearby council (Romsey) has come up with the fantastic idea of turning off the street lights after midnight to save the planet from global warming. The cretin of a councillor who came up with stupidity claims that if the lights are not being used - then why have them on? Let's put it this way: It took years and a whole lot of money to get those lights fitted. They were fitted for road and personal safety.
When will this idiot of a councillor realise that he is talking out of his backside? How many car accidents, rapes and assaults will it take to end this stupid trial? Were the residents asked about this? - I doubt it. Just like our government, local councils think they can do anything they like and sod the people who are paying their wages.
If I was a resident of Romsey I would be demanding the lights to be left on. After all, they are paying for them.
