Nanny Bans Vacuums and Other Devices

Euro Nanny is on the warpath again, this time she has fixed her gimlet eye upon the humble vacuum cleaner; and has decreed that as from 1 September vacuums with motors in excess of 1,600 watts will be banned.

For why?

Apparently, if you believe Nanny's dodgy science, these products contribute to climate change.

Euro Nanny will require vacuum cleaners to be sold with a new system of labels, which will show their cleaning performance and requires a minimum level of performance.

However, these labels will be bollocks; because they are self regulating (ie the manufacturers create them and test them etc).

Once she has banned powerful suckers, Euro Nanny will also be banning high wattage hair driers and kettles.

Why not just go the whole hog, and initiate mandatory power cuts everyday?

Let's face it Euro Nanny would really love to do that, given her dictatorial ambitions!

    Apparently you can boil water using less energy, Who knew!

    I suppose this means you can produce steam for steam turbineseasier, use less coal, produce less carbon dioxide. Eureka! All the problems of the world are solved.

    Whoever this person is, he/she/they deserve a nobel.

    Of course the EUSSR has not thought that people will hoover for longer and negate any saving in consumption. Of course houses with a large array of solar panels wouldn't be emitting any c02 anyway.

    A less powerful kettle will actually use more energy to heat a given amount of water, since the losses to atmosphere will exist over a longer period. Not only are the rules petty, they are scientifically illiterate.
