Apparently, DC's excuse for calling an engineer was that there was a leak and the electics were wet.  I heard an interview with one of the engineers who was on the call.  He didn't sound too impressed, though he was clearly under instructions to say nothing.
You'd think any politician would hesitate to call the electricity board when half the country's under water, though.  Or maybe he thought reporting a power failure would show "we're in all in this together"  Grin

Either he wanted to "dampen" the opposition, or he wanted to "electrify" his constituents  Cheesy

Would a qualified electrician be on such a low wage that he or she would be eligible to claim Tax Credits ?

Yes.
My nextdoor neighbours son is a fully qualified sparky. He was earning less than the NMW working full time for an electrician company. Their excuse was that he was "still learning on the job" so despite putting himself through all the courses and exams at his own cost they continued to pay him like an apprentice.
The result? We have lost a skilled member of the workforce. He now works night shifts on a production line instead because he doesn't want to be an electrician now.
