You may have heard that recently there was a ‘furore’ over the Christmas lights in Bolton. Yes, you read that right.
After Kevin Davies, couldn’t get his bins emptied (sounds dirty, but it’s honestly not) by Bolton Local Council he was forced to tweet in frustration.
His suggestion that in return for his refuse collection being completed to his own high standards, he wouldn’t relinquish his duty of turning on the Christmas lights in Bolton, was accepted by local ‘government officials’.
Anyway, all’s well that ends well. His bins were emptied correctly and the streets of Bolton are now lit up by Santa, Rudolf and Co.
Hardly ‘Loans For Lordships’ but nice to know that ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ goes on everywhere. Not ‘Cash for Honours’ but maybe Trash for Honours?
