I had a copy of the Councils TENANT TIMES yesterday. It made me laugh, it made me want to cry. Houses of the Future was the main thing HERE TODAY it claims.
It seems that we ought to be overjoyed with the fact that are using ground source heat pumps, oh gosh oh my at least the properties on the front OF THE MAG had a couple of solar panels, but what didn't they have.
Those roof tiles that collect solar energy,
They didn't have roof water collection systems
They didn't have a means of collecting bath water for recycling through the toilet??? (Sarah McGills big worry) Hey Sarah do they have showers fitted as standard huh???
They didn't have any micro wind turbines either, yet they talk talk talk about fuel poverty, some of us Sarah have water poverty as well. (See the :welsh assembly crazydave files on www.blogger.com)
So when are we going to have these types of systems as STANDARD, when are architects going to be made to compulsory put these in their designs.
Not the way the Welsh Assembly perform, not the way the House of Lords are either. yet if they were really serious about the environment these systems would be STANDARD FOR ALL HOMES.
Lets hope it will not be to long in the FUTURE till every home in Wales has these, I wonder what the cost would be of just installing the micro wind turbines directly into the national grid on every home in Wales would it cost the £67 million of the Chamber down the Bay????
Well there’s something that would not appear in the Western Mail n Echo isn't it Crazydave there’s something that Nicola Hayward Thomas likes to duck n Dive on her daily show.
All the best People, WE DEMAND THESE THINGS FROM THE POLITICAL ELITE.
LOVE N LIGHT CRAZYDAVE."
