When I\’m Not Cleaning Windows

So, the old method of cleaning windows is discouraged (read, near banned) because it involves people going up on ladders in clear breach of sensible elfnsafety rules.

Fine, so some bright sparks invent a new method of cleaning windows:

Window cleaners, under pressure from health and safety legislation which discourages the use of ladders, have been converting their businesses to water-fed poles.

The cleaners fill a tank in their van with mains water via a hosepipe.

The water is piped from the van to a brush on the end of the pole, allowing cleaners to wash windows up to 60ft high without ladders.

Most inventive and clearly a good thing. Except that, now, in certain circumstances, this method will also be bnned.

Weren\’t we promised joined up government?

    Harsh – they should at least be fed on Zywiec, even if vodka is inappropriate for the work being done…
