A pint of the dark stuff?

The local Guardian has helpfully reported the restoration of electrickery to Worcester Park and Sutton following last night's powercut, along with EDF's standard blah-blah about a fault on the underground network being to blame.

The article also pointlessly notes that "Despite being hit by the power cut punters at the Lord Nelson, London Road, Cheam were still able to enjoy pint albeit in the dark" (Blitz spirit indeed) - neglecting to report the similarly earth shattering news that Mrs Doris Steele of Cavendish Road was able to make tea on a gas hob and that drivers used things called 'headlights' to get around in the dark.
