George Arbuthnott is thick. That can be the only excuse for what might be the most retarded story ever published.
"A Mail on Sunday survey has revealed it is now almost impossible to buy a direct replacement for the old-style pearl lightbulb in any of Britain’s major retailers."
I've just been to the Co-op and bought a direct replacement for an old style pearl lightbulb. If people are finding it difficult to buy the bulbs they certainly shouldn't be allowed to install them.
There's even more light bulb madness dissected over at minority thought. Why are they making people so angry?
