 So if someone cant call for help in a power cut , or a few houses burn down, and a few people die as a result then its not an issue as their lives are not worth the expense of installing a replacement system / systems that are just as robust


For the reasons you describe, and exposed by the recent storms I believe, the switch-over to Digital Voice has generally been put on hold now that it's been realised that a more robust system needs to be developed.

The house burning down has actually happened.  I believe it was not far from us, in Aberdeenshire? IMBW
