Calder's Comfort Farm: Heathrow, lightbulbs and Emma Thompson

My latest column for the New Statesman website is now in place:
A friend installed the new bulbs last year. Within days, he reports, Izal lavatory paper had appeared in his bathroom and corned beef in his fridge. He now lives in terror of meeting the landlord on the stairs and being asked to pay the rent he owes.
He wouldn’t mind, but he owns the house.

But corned beef is delicious.

Anyway I tried the new bulbs and the wifaery just magicked them away.
