BBC website today:
"A council has suspended a streetlight replacement programme after a man went on hunger strike, chained to a lamppost, in protest at the work.
David Cemlyn, 66, was outraged that the Victorian-style cast-iron columns in St Andrew's, Bristol, were being replaced with more efficient, modern ones.
The council said it had suspended work pending further talks with residents".
I am speechless. I am sure they are great lampposts but of all the things to go on hunger strike for ... meanwhile 200,000 unborn children a year are killed in the womb.
