Readers may recall that we have consistently encouraged Labour-run Haringey Council to practice what they preach when it comes to conserving energy and going green.
Despite telling others what to do, they ignore their own advice. We all know that the lights in their Station Road offices burn throughout the night. Last Friday, on my way back from a south London club at 3am, I noticed from the windows of my 149 bus that the problem isn't just confined to their Wood Green offices: their Asylum Services centre in Bruce Grove and the Coombe's Croft Library in White Hart Lane were both lit up like Christmas trees! So too was the new sixth form college on White Hart Lane.
Although not run by the council, the worst offender was the College of North East London (CONEL): every single room was brightly lit. CONEL is a key partner of Haringey Council and, like Haringey, is paid from the public purse. It's time for the public sector to practice what they preach.
