Oh stop f#cking whinging about the cost of electricity !
Going to make this short and sweet.
The South African hubris of the week is to lose their minds over the cost of electricity going up by 25% on Friday. You morons !
Now wrap your pea brained, idiotic and stupid minds around this and shut the fuck up.
1)South Africa has in 17 years increased the percentage of people with electricity from 30% to 80%. That costs money !
2) For these such reasons of high new demand and relatively low supply, the less developed a country the more expensive electricity is. However even when compared to highly developing countries, South Africa has cheaper electricity than all the Brics economy countries.
3) And even despite that South Africa even has cheaper electricity than most developed first world countries.
4) South Africa is currently building a bunch of new power stations. These cost money !
Ok ? Got it ?
Now if you insist that this 25% hike is going to hurt you there are so many things you can do. Firstly you could make a effort to conserve electricity you muppet ! Turn off appliances you aren't using, invest in a gas cooker, put in solar heating or put a timer on your geyser. Those few steps will more than halve your electricity bill.
So if it's really about money that you're bitching about and you haven't been doing these things you have no excuse and need to shut the hell up right now.
