What do you think of Redditch council's proposal to use the local crematorium to heat the swimming pool? According to a spokesman saving 14500 per year.
I don't have a problem with it, but it seems that a lot of people do.

I think it would make sense both in cost savings and from a 'green' point of view - the energy from the crematorium would otherwise be lost so it makes sense to use it rather than lose it to the atmosphere.

It sounds like common sense to me but it seems even the union UNISON is offended by the idea.

I don't see a problem, it really makes sense to me. To object against this scheme is ridiculous.

Sounds like a 1988 Clint Eastwood movie:

The Dead Pool

The Dead Pool is a 1988 American film about the manipulation of a "dead pool" game by a serial killer.


You'll get the most heat from the very sinful who are going the "Down Place"

I'm 4 up with my dead pool so far this year: Oasma Bin Ladan, Amy Whitehouse, Liz Taylor, and Gerry Rafertty.

Bruce Forsyth, Nelson Mandella, Ronny Biggs and Maggie Thatcher  have been a great dissapointment for me; but it's only the middle of August yet.

Lot's of Teens in the U.K. would have doubled their brain cells with an Amoeba inside.
