Some news just breaking here in the UK with widespread power cuts affecting large areas.


Major power failures have been reported across large areas of the UK, affecting trains, airports and traffic lights. UK Power Networks said large parts of London and the South East are without electricity. "We believe this is due to a failure on National Grid's network, which is affecting our customers," it said. Transport for London said the drop in power is affecting traffic lights in the capital, while many train lines are facing delays and cancellations.

EDIT: I can't even get on to check my supplier to see if they have any issues, could be busy?

Possibly a cyber security issue , seems odd power would go down in different parts of the country on the same day.

Three weeks ago they were talking about powder outages in UK .


He said: “Critical national infrastructure such as smart electricity networks are susceptible to malicious cyberattacks which could cause substantial power outages and cascading failure affecting multiple business, health and education organisations as well domestic supply.”


Hmmmm?

Hope it's not as bad as the massive blackouts in 2003. Those knocked out power across several US states, including my area, and it was a few days before we got power back. Estimates had around 50 million people affected, and they never offered any good explanation for how it happened.

Funny that it happens on the same day that the chancellor Sajid Javid visits the National Grid!

And funny how it's happening around the time that people on this forum dismissed as too conspiratorial for ATS...

Whatever's happening is certainly all part of the 8-11 conspiracy or there would not have been such a BIG buildup of the conspiracy to start with. No matter what happens if anything, where there is smoke there is certainly fire whether it's the old smoke-and-mirrors routine or not?

Fact is with all these planned "events" as noted three weeks ago , "they" always announce their plans before hand in an attempt to divert blame away from themselves. The guilty party is usually the first to exclaim they are not guilty!

That actually does a really good job of explaining it.
I'm from Massachusetts and was in Michigan playing baseball with kids from around the world when it happened.
As much as it sucked it was fun. We hung out with these crazy kids from saipan. Hung out with kids from Panama, some who are in the mlb. The Russia team had no sense of humor about it.

Faulty Generator... though I don’t know if I believe that or not...

BBC News


National Grid said it was caused by issues with two power generators but the problem was now resolved.
To stop a terrorist plot in my mind..

Nearly a whole page and no one has blamed Putin yet?

Most likely hidden scenario since no other real explaination given:

1. The Russians did it in retaliation for the ecomonic interests they lost in Iraq. DONT MESS WITH RUSSIA OR ELSE!

No coincidense that at the same time, Putin arrested Mikhail Khodorkovsky Russia's richest money-launderer who was obviously working for intersts in the West and then confistacts Yukos Oil.

As usual, just have to follow the $Money to find the real back story. If the "Energy Charter Treaty" doesn't clearly show the true workings of the "New World Order" nothing does:

www.theguardian.com...
en.wikipedia.org...

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in the mid-1990s, he accumulated considerable wealth by obtaining control of a number of Siberian oil fields unified under the name Yukos, one of the major companies to emerge from the privatization of state assets during the 1990s (a scheme known as "Loans for Shares").

One of the final hurdles was to find language to ensure national sovereignty over natural resources while enshrining the principle of international cooperation to allow outside access to those resources.

en.wikipedia.org...

GML, previously known as Menatep, the principle shareholder in Yukos, is suing Russia for more than $100 billion in an international arbitration case under the treaty.

The hearings took place in October 2012.[23] In July 2014, the international arbitration panel in The Hague unanimously ruled in favour of the shareholders, awarding $50 billion damages for the seizure of assets and dismantling of Yukos.[24] The Russian government has vowed not to comply with the ruling, setting off an international legal dispute which has resulted in France and Belgium seizing Russian assets for possible use as restitution for the claimants.[25] However, a French court ruled against the seizure by the French authorities,[26] and a Dutch court later overturned the $50 billion ruling, arguing Russia had not ratified the Energy Charter Treaty and so was not bound by it.[27]

Enter the Bank of New York a.k.a. The Federal Reserve
en.wikipedia.org...

In November 1994, Konstantin Kagalovsky became deputy chairman of Bank Menatep. Kagalovsky was Russia's representative to the International Monetary Fund between 1992 and 1995. He is married to Natasha Gurfinkel-Kagalovsky (aka Nataliya Gurfinkel-Kagalovskaya[15]), a former senior vice president of the Bank of New York (B.O.N.Y.). The Bank of New York was involved in the tax evasion scandal with billions of dollars channeled out of Russia from 1996 to 1999.[16] (See also: Clearstream scandal)

In November 1995, Bank Menatep took part in a mortgage auction, which resulted in its takeover of the oil company Yukos.

Following the arrest of Yukos' former chief executive Mikhail Khodorkovsky in October 2003, Stephen Curtis, a British lawyer, was appointed managing director of Group Menatep Ltd. in November 2003.[71] However, just a couple of months later, Curtis died in a helicopter crash in Bournemouth on March 3, 2004.

On February 11, 2004, Anton Drel, the lawyer of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, announced his client was no longer a shareholder of Group Menatep and that Khodorkovsky had pulled out of the company on October 20, 2003, several days before he was arrested. At the time of his arrest, Khodorkovsky held 59.5 percent of Group Menatep equaling roughly 26 percent of Yukos, worth $7.8 billion. Shortly after Khodorkovsky's arrest, Group Menatep pulled its shareholder list off its web site and revealed that Khodorkovsky had handed over control of a special trust that owned 50 percent of Menatep. Drel however said that Khodorkovsky had relinquished all his shares in the holding. The lawyer pointed out that the prosecutors' step of freezing 44 percent of Yukos' shares could be unlawful as Khodorkovsky did not own any shares in Menatep any longer. Menatep owned the frozen stake via two offshore vehicles, Yukos Universal and Hulley Enterprises. Drel further added that he could not disclose the name of the new holder of the shares. Analysts complained Yukos' ownership structure was getting murkier and murkier.[76]

Following the death of Stephen Curtis in March 2004, Group MENATEP announced the appointment of three new managing directors in May 2004: Kevin Bromley, Director of IFG International Limited an Isle of Man trust company; Nicholas Keeling, a Gibraltar-based solicitor representing a corporate director; and Tim Osborne, senior partner of Wiggin Osborne Fullerlove, an English law firm specialising in international tax. The three directors were supposed to jointly manage the operations of the company.[77]

As of mid 2004, holding company Group MENATEP Limited was the 100% owner of the following subsidiary companies:[78]

Yukos Universal Ltd (Yukos Universal Ltd was the majority shareholder in YUKOS Oil Company: Structure of Yukos Universal Ltd)

Sometimes the power goes out in spots in America because they're trying to "catch up" their output following a significant period of high drain. With all the recent hot weather in Europe gobbling up the power, maybe they're trying to get a little bit of that back with targeted outages.

"Catch up their output following a significant period of high drain." "Maybe they're trying to get a little bit of that back with targeted outages"

Are you seriously suggesting that the power grid runs on batteries? Speaking as an electrican, there is no such thing a getting energy back - electricty only flows one-way through the circuit back to ground and the Universe where it came from to start with!

BTW - no record temps anywhere in Europe today - all in the normal 20-30C (70-80F) except the two hot-spots Greece (95F) and Rome (97F) www.theweather.com... Maybe the Vatican needed some extra Energy to communicate with St Peter today?

Two power generators at different power stations went down at the same time , although not unique it is curious.

Those high ranking officials always like to feel they are accomplishing something. So, pulling on a few levers and pressing a few buttons gets them all happy.
