We seemed to manage for many years without the expense of a Mayor and didn't suffer as a result.

Some of the biggest buildings in the area had power outages, and my workplace lost internet and phones. Here's hoping it takes them another day to get it all sorted...

My company is still closed as of today. They emailed me to "go swimming, take a walk and an afternoon nap".

Latest from the council is that the Cottons Centre - home of the Southwark call centre, amongst other things - is still without power.

According to the council, "EDF is currently unable to supply a timeframe for when all businesses will have power".

I asked EDF for an update yesterday and am still waiting.
