Not Happy Bloody vandals!

Yup two rants in a day, but WTF is up with some people

I am currently sitting at my parents who got power back after 4 hours, Dartford town where I am has no power at all. The only saving grace being the trains were not affected.

News item relating to Dartford outage

Vandals burnt down my old primary school at the weekend, which was a bit sad.

Still no power and estimates are between 24hrs and 4 days to fix. To make matters worse everything in my flat is electric, and other than the cold tap the water to the other taps is pumped meaning I have a dribble of luke warm water from what is left in the hot tank

Mate, I'd be booking myself into a hotel for the duration and sending the bill to the power company they should have redundancy in the system to allow for this sort of failure, if they don't then they are failing the customer.

We've had this a few times on the railway, with signalling equipment going blank because the local gyppos have helped themselves to the cable

Of course the railway then gets it in the earhole from the punters onboard

Hope you get power back soon, fella.

Thanks mate. Yeah, for just over a year I worked in West London, and had to use the district line and more than once I had to walk to a different branch because signal cables had been nicked.

It is annoying not have electricity for so long, but worrying is when the local hospital is affected. Rumour has it they had issues getting the backup generator started, so for a few quids worth of copper they could have blood on their hands.

What about hooking your GTA to your car, you'll get a lovely nice sound from the house
