WITH the benefit of global warning and the highest July temperatures since records began, I am proud to announce that my dustbin and wheelie bin have produced one of the finest crops of maggots I have ever witnessed.
I'm beginning to think this could be a nice little earner if I and a few neighbours combined our stocks and went into commercial production.
I don't suppose the council could possibly object, since it was their bright idea to limit the collection of our dustbin contents to once a fortnight - and I don't imagine they are concerned if all these maggots mature into nice fat bluebottles to infest homes and spread infection.
Isn't it nice to think those elected to look after our interests have such a sound understanding of the effects of climate change, and can make such well judged decisions for us? I don't remember their asking me (or anyone else I know) if it was all right to limit the collection of our household waste to once a fortnight.
