THE NEW PURITANS

We have had the Dark Age and The Age of Enlightenment - I think we are now entering a new age which I am calling The New Puritan Age. This report gives a flavour of what is happening. It is a gradual tightening of control on what we are allowed to do. First they banned incandescent light bulbs, then it was high-powered vacuum cleaners, now it is going to be types of coffee percolators. What next? I was thinking that logically they should ban Christmas lights, specially the new increasingly popular outside lights, but I would be very surprised if they did, as that would definitely hand them the title of Puritans.
