The National Trust illuminating their 'efficiency'
Recently the national news media proclaimed that our National Trust should be applauded for switching over to energy efficient light bulbs in order to save over half a million pounds a year.
Why? I ask.
I think the very opposite should happen. I mean, why should they be applauded for doing something that most of the country have been doing for the past ten years or more! That’s over £5,000,000! The NT would have a nationwide appeal for that kind of money.
I can’t believe that no one in the Trust’s national hierarchy has not changed their own lamps at home and not thought of suggesting the same for the organisation. It beggars’ belief! That it has taken ten years to make such a decision. For all the good work the National Trust does do, this is a classic and illuminating example of how it’s committee mentality can squander money and public resources.
