      Speaking of all ministers in charge of the electricity, I suggest you take a look at all the previous ones in charge ever since 1991.

      You’d find an interesting trend.

          I can’t agree more. Just pointing out a fact but keep in mind that people will judge the person in charge nowadays and not his predecessors.

      When new ministers take charge of an administration; they should honor or TRY to honor their promises. I would criticize any minister or government that is as incompetent and impotent as this one. Maybe you should check whether their new villas are lit 24/7??

      People should hold all these pols to higher standard than you guys do. Shame on the voters!

      Ok I agree, but does blaming all the previous ministers (whoever they are) make the current one’s responsibility any less???
      When you hold a position of authority and come bragging about reform, well you should stand for it and stop whining.

      Yes, and it shall remain there for a loooong time, mark my words.
      My theory is that the government(s), instead of having to invest($$$$$$$$) in new plants (God forbid), then hire, train, pay employees to run, maintain, network (kilovolts, anyone??), collect ($$), risk power theft or failing to collect..

      ..prefer to take the easy way out: Let the damn people PAY CASH for their private generators (Custom Duty,VAT), their maintenance (headache) and parts (Custom Duty,VAT), and most importantly MAKE THEM PAY CASH for the preciou$ Fuel (TAXXXXXXX,VAT)..

      Imagine the government NOT having to invest a SINGLE CENT, from start to end, just comfortably collect the TAXE$$$$$$. (If this is not racketeering, I do not know what is!!)
      My guess is that the crappy power situation lately is to cover for their newly approved $$$$-7-BILLION.

      Less EDL forces More Taxes (YESSSS!).
      (Point to ponder for these Gentlemen: if EDL=0, what is the upper limit of the expected taxes?!!? and NO, it CANNOT BE infinite, you moronzzzzz..)

      I guarantee you i saw this coming the day the cabinet “RESOLVED” their made-up SPENDING CRISIS.. ehem..resolved..
      Once again, we quote:
      “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” – Albert Einstein

      WHY the problem still exists 22 FREAKIN YEARS after the ’75 war (supposedly) ended?
      QED, don’t you think..

      Bassile is just the fall guy.
