Too bad that guy can't go out at night, cos there's no way you'd want to leave the house in daylight looking like that.

what a shoddy piece of work... mispellings abound, and several sleeves are repeated.

Oops, my comment was directed at Matt's story, didn't see it was 2 weeks old.

The Independent ran an identical Abbey Road feature 4 days ago: Abbey Road: 40 Years - 40 Imitations

Haven't checked properly, but I think they are basically all the same albums, but just in a different order.

I'm happy for people to embezzle welfare money if they are going to use it for crazy shit like that.

Their record label said it wouldn't sell because it did not feature the names of the band or the LP.

Yes, I can imagine EMI thinking that the new Beatles album might not sell...

It's true though that there's no way anyone would have recognised a photo of them in the 60s. They were quite low profile I think.

Also 'Gary, Marbella' is too perfect for a DM reader.

To be fair, it was John Kosh who said about "EMI said it won't sell", as stated in the Telegraph.

To be blunt, clearly the Daily Mail nicked the whole article, photos and all.

food waste? tbh once i take out the recyclable stuff that's all i have left.

Amateur Darraghmatics (darraghmac), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

I don't understand why they're getting quite so 'URRGHH SLOP BUCKETS' about this. Food waste is currently collected with the rest of your rubbish once a week. Under the proposed system, food waste will still be collected once a week, but just separated out from the rest of your waste. What's the difference?

Peinlich Manoeuvre (NickB), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:33 (4 years ago) Permalink

Not sure which is funniest - the picture of the Victorian slop bucket or the nightmare vision of maggots and rats overrunning the nation's kitchens.

euroc-rats, surely

Amateur Darraghmatics (darraghmac), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that Victorian illustration is just someone emptying the laundry bucket, isn't it? Can't see it being appropriate unless they used to use rotting meat instead of fabric conditioner.

Peinlich Manoeuvre (NickB), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

I can imagine Dacre having to be forcibly restrained from including an image of a 1665 plague-cart.

Dorian (Dorianlynskey), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:49 (4 years ago) Permalink

Well, I guess the slop bucket is what you have to put the food in during the week? Presumably this will be covered, perhaps with some kind of "lid", to keep the insects and rodents out.

Colonel Poo, Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

I have one in my kitchen with just such an ingenious "lid" contraption. No maggots, flies or rats in evidence yet.

Dorian (Dorianlynskey), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 11:52 (4 years ago) Permalink

As long as it has an airtight lid it shouldn't be a problem.

600+ comments, though. anyone who's worked on a local newspaper knows bin collection is the only public service people really care about.

The same rotten entity that tries to enforce these unworkable bully boy policies are the same ones who know all about polluting our skies and air with CHEMTRAILS. Just look above your head every morning on the way to work.

I wonder whether this comment will get published!!

It's a point your paper has made on several occasions and I agree with you on this. Every year Britain sends 6.7 million tons of food to landfill, where it contributes to dangerous methane emissions.

says Hil.

Mark G, Tuesday, 15 September 2009 13:25 (4 years ago) Permalink

just to clarify something- when this food waste goes into a special bin, where does it go to from there if not landfill? pigfood?

Hmm, I pressed the green arrow on Hillary Benn's comment, now I see it's back to zero.

Anyone want to press some green arrows there? Just for the hell of it?

Actually, just realised I pressed the wrong one, about the dogs who woof down food.

As opposed to chickens, who just cluck it down, right?

It basically gets composted. Both the end product and the heat the process generates can be re-used, along with any waste gas.

Peinlich Manoeuvre (NickB), Tuesday, 15 September 2009 13:35 (4 years ago) Permalink

well that's highly commendable.
