Why are we barely getting 4 hours of electricity per day? Is it because of decades of incompetence and short-sighted solutions? Is it because of political and sectarian interference in the energy decision-making? Is it because of corrupt politicians? Lack of any vision? shady deals? electricity theft?

Of course not. The real problem is that we’re consuming too much electricity according to Energy Minister Walid Fayyad. How dare we consume more electricity to heat up our homes during winter? We should sacrifice the same way he is by staying out all the time partying, dining and drinking.

As I’ve said it on many occasions, it really requires a lot of talent to get such ministers. Someone should do a documentary on the profiling process that takes place to nominate such individuals to become ministers.
