See I'm wondering if we DO all have to have electricity. African tribespeople have dealt quite nicely without electricity for thousands of years. Their sustainable lifestyles should be encouraged rather than 'westernised' and nobody misses what they've never had. Sorry that probably sounds horribly patronising - it isn't meant to be and I know not everyone in Africa lives as a tribesperson!

The point is, though, that just because people in the UK have become dependent on electricity and cars and things and other such stuff that's ultimately bad for us and environmentally damaging, does that mean people that are doing without such stuff have an entitlement to it too? I don't have a cleaner or a nanny looking after my kids or a swimming pool or a cocaine habit but I'm managing quite nicely without all of that, and just because some people do have all that stuff doesn't mean I should too. Sorry, probably not making my point too well but you know what I mean!
