  2. Stop Wearing Ties to save Energy, Says the Spanish PM

Stop Wearing Ties to save Energy, Says the Spanish PM

In the News

Amongst all the other suggestions to cut down on energy use like turning exhibition lights off and cancelling big events like the oktoberfest beer festival now it is to stop wearing ties in offices etc

I suppose it makes sense as the cooler you are the less air conditioning etc you will use

When i saw the photo of a guard in full uniform at buckingham palace last week being given water i thought that was ridiculous, expecting them to wear it in extreme heat , there should be a summer outfit like shorts and teashirt, but i doubt if that will ever happen

But at least taking the heat from under the collar can be done , maybe they could be replaced with a spinning dickiebow, at least there would be some circulation of air , this one from eastenders would be ideal

I think it's awful that those guards have to wear uniforms like that, just wearing a flat hat would help enormously. Surprised the Queen doesn't have something to say about it.

As everyone knows I read a lot of history books and imagine how those crusaders suffered in 40+ heat in armour and helmets.

I think it's awful that those poor guards have to wear that uniform in the summer it looks so heavy and warm most places should allow employees to wear something cooler the dickiebow would be good 😂🤣

It's always either the climate, heat waves, or energy.

Most politicians are disgusting human beings with their bs and double standards.

The Spanish are making fun of this absurdity. Here's an example.

And now they're [politicians] trying to dictate what they can do:

Spain's entering the first steps into Communism.

Buckingham Palace staff have always worn their traditional uniform for hundred of years in all weathers, why stop wearing it now, because some snowflake suggested it? As for not wearing a tie to save energy, don't get me started!!
