Once again the a**holes at Kibtek have given their customary pressie to the Brits (or those that celebrate on the 25th). Electric turned off for servicing. Cheers Kibtek, I hope your new year sucks!

To all you apologists who will say 'they are Muslim and dont celebrate Crimbo'... Dont be so naive, its a slap in the face and you know it!

They wrecked one of our last Christmas' there; 2006. Electric off from 10am to 8pm. Thankfully the Turkey had been cooked on Christmas Eve. I was doing 8 vegetables and needed our electric oven to work so as we only had 3 gas rings and I also wanted to do roast potatoes.

We hung on and hung on, but finally gave in at 6pm and I cooked off 3 of the veg and carved the Turkey by candle light. I wasn't a happy bunny that day I can tell you.

Now it looks like Kibtek are doing there usual tricks. I bet the electric wasn't off that much at the time of Bayram was it?

Must be localised, not heard anyone say they lost electric.

In answer to 1, what do you expect people to do for the day, nothing!!!! It is nothing to do with religion in this country 25th December is not a holiday, get used to it. How many british effected on 25th compared to the whole of the population!!???? You are a very minor, minority group.

If the 25th of December is not a holiday, (and christmas is not celebrated here in north cyprus) then why were 30 land registry staff treated to a "christmas meal" at the Archway ??

Guess I was lucky that I did not experience any power cuts Christmas day, but I would like to point out that we did in our village for several hours during the local recent Bayram - so it is NOT aimed at the Brits - just another of those little things that make the place Cyprus! It may be infuriating, but it is infuriating for all, and I for one have no idea of the probs that Kibtek face as everyone puts on their electric at full blast for heating, cooling, cooking etc.

But of course, EV ERY power cut always happens just as I want to use the computer!

I worked 3 years in Istanbul and we were always given consideration and respect

for our Christmas celebrations. Ridiculous to suggest they deliberately did this

This is my 7th Xmas here, only had a power cut once (2005) for 1 hour on 25th Dec.

Absolute nonsense to suggest KibTec target Brits or whoever on such days.

MESSAGE 1 What a small minded pathetic statement. Why oh why do you live or holiday here , if that is how you feel.

You should know what it can be like here, Why do think almost every single business has a back up generator.

We have had no mains electric since feb 14 th this year. (it's no big deal) we cope infact we live very very well.

Just goes to show what a load of spoilt B------s we have become having everything put on a plate in the UK.

Enjoy the life here, and don,t be so negative.

Oh dear - thia Donty certainly knows what to post!!!!! and then no more to say.

25th December İS just another day here - sorry - but that is a fact - does any other country in the world check all religious dates and occasisons prior to actioning any work - get a life!!

There was a power cut on the last bayram too - a long one at that.
