More bloody load shedding get a grip and stop these continuous power cuts

Old bean

Steve is all double time no rush


No I’m just getting fed up with the excuse we have a fault when it’s not. God help us when we get back to everywhere being open and the power shedding will intensify


Should be Saturday Night Fever! Not power cuts!


If the electric network on the island is anything like the water pipes, there will be power cuts for years to come
