A couple from Hounslow have been ordered to switch off their elaborate external Christmas decorations or else face prosecution. This includes their illuminated tableau featuring well known seasonal figures; such as Homer Simpson, a Wookie, John Wayne, several Lord of the Rings characters, a pink Cadillac and a ten-foot Wayne Rooney as Santa.
The Electricity Board said wed have to switch off. They told us that whenever our lights went on Slough was being plunged into total darkness. Apparently aircraft landing at Heathrow had been complaining that the glow in the sky from our lights was putting pilots off. Bunch of miserable gits dont they know its Christmas?
