A COUNCIL house absolutely festooned in flashing Christmas decorations is goading passers-by into voicing prejudiced thoughts.
The house, which still has a council door, is estimated to be covered in around £11,000 of lighting with viewers biting their tongues and looking away quickly when they see the smiling, waving householder.
Occupant Wayne Hayes said: “Yeah, it’s pure provocation. Come and have a f**king word if you don’t like it.
“I know everyone round here thinks we’re spending all their taxes on booze and fags, so this is a massive festive two finger to the lot of them.
“I can hear the whispering from the Audis from here. I love it. I’m outside with a Lambert & Butler and a can of Strongbow Dark Fruits. Say something to my face.
“We’re lit up like a cruise ship in harbour. You should see our electric bills. Come on, wonder out loud how we pay them, I dare you.”
