Power blackout

With reference to your editorial “Power blackout” (January 26, 2015), we have now become accustomed to seeing gas pipelines and electricity pylons being blown up with frightening regularity. The solution of course is increased security, patrolling and surveillance, which of course the government does not want to do, being preoccupied with metro buses and other frivolous projects. We should expect to see more such events in the near future. So, in answer to your question, “Is somebody in the power bureaucracy following up on this?”, I would confidently say, “Are you serious? Nothing is being done, nor will be done”.
