50c shackle causes blackout

Unbelievably a $0.50 shackle has been blamed as the cause of the power outage in Auckland that has cost the economy millions.
 
In fact this is shocking (pardon the pun). Labour of course will try to wriggle out of this by claiming they have spent millions on the network. They of course have failed to grasp that although they spent millions there clearly wasn't enough for a few extra shackles nor have they fixed any problems.
 
Something is wrong when a little gust of wind can snap a shackle. perhaps they should invest in $1.00 shackles.
