The ABC has a short piece in which Labor MLA Mary Porter says she doesn’t want to be “a killjoy” but maybe we should regulate Christmas lights.
Why not just ban Christmas spirit while you’re at it?
Ms Porter said she has received “numerous complaints” from humbuggered residents who don’t like people driving past late at night to look at their neighbour’s Christmas lights.
“Late at night with cars still driving up, doors banging, people explaining how beautiful the lights are in very loud voices keeping them awake,” she said (by the way, how many blind people do you think go to see Christmas lights and so need their beauty explained?).
Her solution is that the government regulate the use of outdoor lights in Canberra’s suburbs.
To that I say: you scrooge! Let the peasants have some fun!
