The leftist idiots in Britain called on their country to have one day in which they would use less energy.
What happened? The British people used more energy than normal.
It doesn't get any funnier than this.
Energy Saving Day flopped, say organisers
Energy Saving Day was a flop, its organiser admitted last night after the National Grid confirmed that across Britain energy use went up by just over one per cent.
The day, which began at dusk on Wednesday evening with candles being lit in St Paul's cathedral, had received the backing of the minister for climate change, Joan Ruddock, Lord May, the former president of the Royal Society, and groups including the National Trust, Tesco and the power companies.
The E Day website encouraged participants to turn off as many appliances as possible and to leave them unused for as long as possible.
But by mid afternoon it was clear from the meters on the Day's website that consumption was about 600 megawatt hours across the country, higher than what the National Grid estimated was used on a normal February day.
And, what do leftists do when their moronic movements fail?
That's right...they blame everyone and everything but themselves. In this case, it was "too cold" or "not warm enough" or there was "not enough publicity" (especially in a country where the government warns that "climate change" will soon destroy the earth). In short, any bullshit excuse is cooked up for the failure of people to listen to leftwing claptrap.
Matt Prescott, the organiser, who had support from the Esme Fairbairn Foundation, said: "We had problems. There was a change in temperature. If it had been warmer, we would have been happy.
"I feel we haven't been able to get the publicity to get the scale we needed. I would love to do it again with enough publicity to do it better."
You have to hand it to the Left. They make wasting energy just so they can be shown as losers seem fun.
