Our wonderful caring Gov has as usual done firk all for people who still cannot afford to heat their homes-BBC NEWS. Fuel poverty if you don’t know is when 10% or more of income is spent on fuel.

Ed Milliband, the energy secretary said: “it's shameful that the UK has such high levels of fuel poverty,” nice words so why hasn’t anyone done anything about it.

Because of the Russia/Ukraine problem gas prices are rising, and “they” say that our prices will rise, but: haven’t the fuel suppliers been telling us that because they buy gas in advance cuts will not happen for a while. Doesn’t that mean that when the prices were low they bought gas, and by now the price cuts should be in force.

We are being ripped off (again) by the energy companies; we are being ignored by the Government(again), who only seem interested in “foreign affairs” and sod the poor and the old who are struggling to keep warm.

Maybe if enough people die from hypothermia this winter (but of course the death certificates will say “flu” or “old age”) then the Gov will get off it’s collective arse and, instead of “requesting” that the energy companies reduce prices they will use what influence they have left and firkin TELL them to.

But as usual this piss poor so-called democratic Government will stagger on blindly oblivious to the people that elected them and allow us to suffer because deep down they really don’t give a stuff.

I would like to be proved wrong but somehow I don’t think I will be.
