so they arranged to have a blackout in City Hall, to show that Ken is all for saving the environment, by reducing the amount of electricity used in his offices by turning all the lights out in the night.

Hurrah! one night!

well done City Hall.

ok so now they've proved they can do it, maybe they should do it again. maybe the same time next year, or here's an idea, what about they start doing it every night, for a month, just to see what happens...

maybe they'll save money on the electric bill (maybe our council tax will go down because of that - ha ha ), maybe they'll use less electric, maybe it'll improve Ken's ratings, and popularity.

Who know's where it'll lead!?

I agree a lot of lights are left on unnecessarily.

Solar panels are being installed on the roof of City Hall, which is good news:

But can you get to the bottom of WHY "City Hall is designed to have its lights on all night". It doesn't improve the nighttime appearance.

I've also noted that large swathes of the offices at More London are still brightly lit late at night. Even if there are teams of lawyers or accountants working 24/7 on some immensely lucrative acquisition and/or merger to a daft deadline, they surely don't need to light whole floors of the building up???
