RANT ALERT !!!!
The use of the so-called energy efficient bulbs is just yet another scam/con. They are reasonably "cheap" at the moment at the point of Sale
. There will be a few months lull until all available incandecent bulbs have gone, then watch the price of these new babies leap up. All great News
for Philips, Siemens etc.
Once again Great Britain has sucked up to our European "friends" (pass the spitoon)and goes along with any cock-eyed idea that will bolster the coffers of big multi-nationals and of course good old Gordon Brown and all the others on his Gravy Train !
Apart from the mercury vapour and various nasty powder coatings inside the envelope, the production of these wannabe flourecent tubes is much more costly cashwise and environmentwise than tungsten bulb production.
Grrrr. The cat's expecting a headache and I've got to go....
Here endeth the rant..... for now !
