** The year is 2012AD.
Full prohibition is now law.
No store in the land has any normal bayonet fitting lamps or Edison screw
lamps to sell.
But CFLs are on sale everywhere, packed in neat boxes of dozen, just like so
You can get a dozen box of mini-spiral ones for as little as $12 or the
larger ones for up to $36.
However, many lamp users are more EQUAL than others !!!
Millions of folk bought up a lifetime supply of household lamps in the
previous 3 years so have no need of the new CFLs.
The prohibitions apply to selling 240 volt incandescent lamps with the two
common fittings, but no others - so the sale of 12 volt halogens has boomed
with 50% of homes now using these energy hungry little suckers.
Hordes of Ebay shops are offering the "illegal" bulbs to the public direct
from China - $25 a hundred, plus delivery.
Hawkers are busy all over the country, going door to door, with packs of
bargain priced "illegal bulbs" offered for cash - no questions asked.
CFL sales have fallen to the lowest level in a decade.
Energy consumption is up too.
Greenies are tearing their hair out .......
