The power cut affected most of the south-east; even the railways, that are supplied direct from the national grid.
But it only lasted half an hour. I was in an independent pub; the lights went out, but it was business as usual. Then some millennials came in with their cards. Sorry- cash only, mate! I can imagine the scenario at Mc.Donalds- no sales, as the till won't work- but we want you all out because it is a "security risk" with no lighting.

We can't complain, we've sold off all our infrastructures over the years !! At the mercy of foreigners ! What exactly does EDF stand for ? And think about the answer.

@Bert EDF might have been a French company originally, just as British Airways, Jaguar and Bovril were originally British. Now it is an international giant, which anyone can buy shares in. Even you.

Quite so, Monsieur Ferret, but I wonder how many shares one would have to buy to get a controlling interest in the firm. Also EDF is not just a French firm, it's a French Government firm ,ca va.

So who sold off our nationalised energy companies? Yes the very same Conservative party that is now in the hands of extreme English nationalists complaining about foreign domination. it all makes sense, doesn't it?
Presumably you would be a Corbyn/Mcdonnell supporter, as they will seek to re-nationalise.

The French,( being intelligent and thinking beyond short term profit), built enough nuclear capacity to sell their surplus to Britain and Germany.

I was one of the suckers that voted labour and got Blair in power. Both he and Corbyn belong to the Fabian society and who knows what else,they are not their own masters. Add to that the fact that any government relies on private finance to supply our money you might as well vote for the bloke who sits outside Boots all day.

I'm in Malling. My mobile went aswell.
I usually get notifications but nothing.
I had to ask my neighbour if she was out too.
It wasn't until the local news when I saw people using their mobiles on train stations that I realised others could.
