If the power people have no idea what has caused the power outage, how on earth can they say that it will be out until 6am tomorrow?

So they know that 3769 properties

are without power, "The cause of the outage is not yet know and a site investigation is underway" HOW can a site investigation be underway if the cause is not known - somebody is telling BIG porkies !!!! The real problem is the total lack of preventative maintenance. Under the "old" local power board model, there was ongoing preventative maintenance every week. NOW under the "new" private ownership model, it’s a case of until it CRAPS OUT - do nothing. Go back through the "power failure" reports of the past few years, its almost always down to a lack of preventative maintenance. .............................

What do you think about businesses rejecting people’s job applications if they have tattoos?

I think it’s fine. Companies should be able to do what is right for their business.
They shouldn’t be able to discriminate someone for having tattoos.
I guess it depends where the tattoo is.
