Bring back Communism?

Post by Spaceman_Dave »

When I was a bit younger in the mid-eighties I used to travel into Eastern Europe to watch Spurs and England.
The style of lighting in places like Poland,Yugoslavia and East Germany
was basically a powerful bulb with a saucepan over the top.
Today you would drool at the darkness this created because all the light hit the floor and stayed there.
Essex County Council is now toying with the idea of some hi-tech lights that will cost a fortune.

It's enough to make 'Uncle Joe' turn in his grave.
