All Property is Theft!
Britain should become a 'hire society' rather than a 'throw away' society says WRAP
Items that could be hired instead of bought include tableware, gardening tools, new electronic gadgets, ski equipment, clothes, telephones and cars.
Liz Goodwin, Chief Executive of WRAP, said consumer buying patterns and waste reduction are the "secret weapon" in meeting climate change targets.
Tableware? Clothes? Telephones? I can see hiring the odd ball gown makes sense but I don't want to hire Monboits old boxer shorts. Fair enough hiring in some extra plates when you are hosting a do in a marquee, but I prefer to own my own spoons, thank you. And telephones, the penny drops. I remember when we all had to hire our telephones from the GPO, the joys of socialist provision of lines and services. That is the glorious future they want for us.
