"The lights are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our time" -- Sir Edward Grey

Your Say

Not to worry, the cars on fire will light up the streets.

People should turn out the lights when they leave work. Nothing irritates me more than driving past the local welfare office (sorry, Dept of Human Resource Development) at 11:00PM and seeing all the lights on. I know the welfaristas aren't working, they don't work during the day.

gleen; Hear Hear! However, to be somewhat fair, large offices usually get cleaned at night - cleaners have to be able to see, too.
