Head of Control at National Grid explaining the widespread power outages yesterday (caused by two large generating sources failing simultaneously).
"the system protects itself by removing demand"
This corporate babble really means that those that lost power include:
an airport, a hospital, parts of the rail network, tube stations and traffic lights!

Just checked last nights Lotto numbers, and if 12 had come out instead of 13, I'd have won £800. Instead I got jack shit 😕.

Second that. How he's got the brass neck to accuse Johnson and Gove of lying is beyond me. Him and his Chancellor told us interest rates would rise, house prices would crash and we'd need an emergency budget if we voted to leave the EU. Idiot

Losing against 10 men for the second time this season.  We actually play much worse when we have a man advantage, it's just bizarre.  :-[

Jo Swinson. This odious piece of work becomes more hateful everytime I hear her. She leads a party called The liberal Democrats, yet refuses to recognise the result of the biggest democratic vote we've ever had. She has no regard or respect for the 17.4 million who voted to leave the EU. She has also got this idea that her party will turn their current 17 seats into over 300 in the next general election. Crazy bitch.

Of all the cynical behaviour around the Brexit issue, the Lib 'Dems' attempt to capitalise on Remainer discontent is the worst example so far.

This is the problem with the Lib Dems - any sniff of influence or power and they latch on to fashionable trends for party political reasons, rather than those that are truly liberal and democratic.

Like the radical left of the Shadow Cabinet, they have sold centrism down the river.

Swinson is at least as much of a pedlar of snake-oil as the rest of them.

The Lib Dems are no worse than the rest of "them" in terms of potentially cashing in on the prevailing political climate....

I do think that making this their official policy is a mistake though. They were far more likely to get my vote if they had just offered a second referendum on a potential deal...

Talking of an "odious piece of work", I hear Verhofstadt was at the Lib 'Dem' conference.

Not a good look for supposed democrats.  But diverting from standard democratic process seems to be par for the course at the moment.  Wonder where it will end...
