It angers me that my local authorities, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council have colluded to switch off my street lights after midnight, plunging my neighbourhood into pitch black darkness. Keeping the lights on and emptying our bins once a week are basic council services, which, on both counts, my council fails to deliver.
I pay hundreds of pounds a year in council tax and the Labour council and socialist bureaucrats can’t even deliver the basics. It’s as if we live in the third world. In fact, that is what the green zealots at the council want as I can reveal the bureaucrats at Ipswich Borough Council tonight told councillors in a closed meeting that the reasons for switching the street lights off at midnight is nothing to do with saving money but instead to meet central government Co2 reduction targets to stop non-existent anthropogenic global warming.
It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.
