    So unless some other body such as a Parliamentary Committee starts asking questions we're not going to find out any more about it?

    It really is time for a requirement for analysis and public reporting of the reasons for such disruptive outages. Without that industries are not going to learn the lessons needed to improve.

That in turn will allow the directors to take whatever financial risks they like, safe in the knowledge that the taxpayer will bail them out.
