Apart from the deadly mercury these new, stupid, unpleasant global warming bulbs possess, they're (predictably) raising prices after the older, cheaper, better bulbs were banned. Any surprise that this liberal stupidity generated more expense for the masses? This is what awaits us if the government moves in and forces us to abide by ridiculous laws and regulations to halt something that IS NOT HAPPENING!!!! This is just like Prohibition; it's doomed because the masses will reject it.
Retailers also claim bulbs that currently cost only 33p are expected to sell for more than £1 within three months. Some will cost £3 or more.
The move comes as Britain is gearing up to phase out the last incandescent light bulbs in an effort to meet climate change targets.
The EU has already banned shops from buying stocks of 100watt bulbs and stopped them stocking up on any type of frosted incandescent bulbs.
