CG/1/1/1/771Published caption: A letter from Giles. This family, like thousands of others who live not very far from the great cities, where the first tiny puff of wind blows the whole electric supply out of action, wishes to register a protest. Stumbling through the darkness of a recent long-spell breakdown, banging our shins on redundant electric washing machines, silent radios, fireless electric fires, out into the blizzard, we reached the shed where we keep our faithful emergency candle. And there lay a copy of your last week's paper announcing that the Electricity Boards were going to start monkeying around with Atomic Power Stations. * * * * * Many bitter neighbours who have been tempted into buying expensive items such as electric milking machines, electric poultry breeding equipment and so forth feel that the local powers-that-be should learn a little more about the power they have before they inflict us with another. And to stem the protests from the electrical authorities about the difficulty of keeping wires up in bad weather, we wish to state that the cables we put up ourselves years and years ago are still up, whereas the local Electricity Board's wiring has broken down several times since Christmas. "No, my boy, you CANNOT have another candle to see to read Nuclear Ned - Space Rider in your horror comic."Giles; Ronald Carl (1916-1995)22 Feb 1955GA1048.jpg
