Absolutely amazing cutting the power good job that most shops are closed. Wonder what oracle has to say that’s twice in matter of a few days in the Newport disgraceful

Make that 3 in a few days

Tings that make you go, hmmm

too many growing and drying getting the crop ready for Christmas.

More tents in Newport, Ryde and Cowes than at the festy.

Overloading the system.

WAIT until more homes fill the Isle. Keep the candles handy then.

Vote this greedy council OUT.

The same day medina lights go live.

Chad Mullen

Growers to be sure.

It’s as if they are preparing us for the great reset new world order

Old bean

Disgusting service

Hang on. Remember the headline on 17th November – SSEN takes to the sky: Innovative technology to keep the power flowing. Well that didn’t last long.

This comment, like the power cut, is a repeat.

Where is the oracle I ask SSEN’s defender of the indefensible. He has gone very quiet lately perhaps he has had his own power cut
