Herself likes those property programmes on television.
You know the ones – where the presenters bring prospective buyers around showing them houses in the hopes they’ll find the perfect home.
I mention this as it becomes obvious that one of the prime attractions of a prospective home is an open fireplace. And the only thing that tops an open fireplace is a log-burner. The latter have become one of the great attractions and people are spending a fortune on them.
Our gubmint is hoping to fuck over all those poor bastards who have spent a fortune installing the latest and greatest wood-burner. In fact they hope to fuck over anyone who has an open fireplace at all.
Now a ban on coal, wood and turf leaves precious little to burn? Paper is a possibility but you’d need to order dozens of newspapers a day to keep that going. I suppose there could be a market for dried cow-pats?
If their little plan comes to fruition, it will overnight make all wood-burners and open fires redundant, not to mention all those very expensive kitchen ranges.
I don’t know the figures but I would imagine that there is a vast number of homes that don’t have central heating at all and that rely on the open fire [with or without a back-boiler or wood-burner] for heating their home? What the fuck are they to do? Freeze?
Of course those of us with oil fired central heating are going to be fucked too because oil, as we all know is the work of the devil and almost entirely responsible for every storm or drought that comes our way. It’s only a matter of time before oil is banned too.
So what’s left?
There is only one alternative which is electricity and that is soon to be dependent on wind and sunshine. It also puts all the eggs in one basket – one power cut and we’re all fucked [and frozen]. So the only time we can heat our homes is when the sun is shining and it’s blowing half a gale outside. A few calm winter’s nights will see half the population succumbing to hypothermia.
I’m getting very tired of this politically correct climate shite.
