James Barlow today blogs about this tool that reveals where anonymous Wikipedia edits have originated from. One entry from someone at Bristol City Council throws up this little gem about Grant from Massive Attack:
“On the morning of Friday, 8 December, Marshall visited Herbert’s Bakery, on York Road in the Montpelier district of Bristol. He bought a single pasty and asked for a carrier-bag. On being told that, for sustainability reasons, he would have to pay 5p for the bag, he demanded to speak to ‘whoever is in charge’. Another customer pointed out that it was reasonable to charge for carrier-bags in order to discourage their excessive use, and particularly so in this case as he only had one pasty and lived just around the corner. However, he insisted on being given a name and address, to whom he could write and complain about what he saw as the excessive cost of a bag.”
Rock ‘n’ Roll or wot?
(Mind you, bet he’s in favour of free corn starch bags for recycling food waste)
