THOSE forward thinkers at Redditch Borough Council have come up with a novel new way of keeping the local swimming pool heated by using the excess energy from the crematorium next door.
In other words, your grandma’s burning corpse is keeping the local pool nice and toasty. It’s what she would have wanted.
“The cremation process is a sensitive matter and we wanted to be sure our proposals had widespread support,” said council leader Carole Gandy.
“The practice is quite common in parts of Europe and especially in Sweden.”
So is lesbianism Carole but we don’t see you donning a blonde wig, putting on a comedy accent and licking out the leader of the opposition in a bid to help bin collection.
