Solar lights continue to fool us all into buying them


The nation is preparing itself for inevitable disappointment, as gardens and back yards are decorated by the traditional annual purchase of solar lights.   

The neat arrangements of lacquered metallic lights and pretty glass jars will all click on around dusk and produce a light display that can best be described as…wank.

The mass solar purchase that promises so much, and avoids the pain of needing actual electricity, will leave us all as deflated as it did this time last year.

‘That one over there is really bright!’ said local solar light fan, Peter Thape.

‘By really bright, I mean I can actually see that it’s lit up,’ added Thape.
