Its not bloody right! I had a letter through my door today from UK Power Networks Services stating that next tuesday and thursday they are switching off our electric from 8am until 5pm! This is the 5th time in 2 years (since i've lived here) that they've done this. I'm sure this work they need to carry out could wait afew weeks until the weather has warmed up? To leave families with small children with no electric (which also means no heating) for 9 HOURS for two days in the middle of winter is just outrageous. I have a 6 week old baby for goodness sake. There is also a very elderly neighbour that lives across the street from me! I have no where else to go for those days otherwise i would, only my family live miles and miles away. I rang them this afternoon to ask what the hell i'm going to do and i was basically told to get on with it. Nice hey!
