Electrical fire sparks evacuation at Maidstone Hospital Oh dear. That nice chap Tony Blair wrote to me in 2005 when a backup genny fire there caused a three day evacuation of A and E. And that was the third incident. TB (the PM not the disease) had, as a result of the Maidstone fire, ordered copies of prior reports of concern, about backup gennies, to be sent to the Northern Ireland Office. I don't know WTF he thought the NI Office was going to do. Send over some lads to help sweep up ? In 2005 it was a bang when mains power restored whilst the genny was still online. Bit of a switching anomaly. The genny wanted to be a genny but it is just a motor in reverse and the mains wanted it to be a motor. Splatter. As I understand it. still it is a change from the usual reports of MRSA and extortionate settlements for departing Chief executives.
