Articles from Tory rags in 2019 doing the rounds.

Energy bills would increase by 2k a year under Corbyns radical energy and nationalisation plans..

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
I pay my gas and electric by debit card via the British gas app. They get paid on the latest day i possibly can and not a day earlier. I always decline their kind offer to store my card details to 'save me time' in the future. They can also forget the idea of me setting up DD's,i'll pay these cunts how and when i want.

Also,does anyone really believe that energy prices will go down to more realistic levels after this coming winter? We are constantly being told of the horrors to come after September but what about subsequent winters?

''assuming this is because they are in some way implicated or have shares, pensions, investments in the energy companies, or they provide funding to the conservatives?''


How dare you imply that certain members of the government are self serving cunts, I mean, surely the PM wouldn't put up with that behaviour....unless he needed a flat decorating or a free holiday.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
What I am trying to understand here is that none of the solutions I am hearing to increasing costs of energy are being at all addressed with the energy companies who are raking in triple and quadruple profits off the back of this.

It seems as if they are untouchable and the solutions we are hearing from the list of future PM's is to either adjust taxes or to provide financial aid to people who are struggling.

It really fucks me off that not one of them seems to want to address the issue at source - assuming this is because they are in some way implicated or have shares, pensions, investments in the energy companies, or they provide funding to the conservatives?

Cancelling Direct Debits is an excellent way to go - companied can borrow against these as if they are cash in the bank. THEY make more money out of them than you save.

Just set up a reminder on your phone/computer to pay the bill on the due date; the company can't then treat it as a guaranteed income. Make sure that you pay though - at least what you can afford.

Lots of "coulds" in there, Ted; I'd be surprised if such matters ever got anywhere near a court given the backlog covid has dumped on the UK justice system - prosecute a child rapist of give the energy companies more money?

Wrong choice would be political suicide.

`The movement has equated the potential strike to the national Poll Tax strike, which saw more than 17 million people refuse to pay the Poll Tax in the UK in the late 80s and early 90s`.


Yeah I remember that shit show... those cunts left me and plenty of others hung out to dry...

Yeah it's not pleasant these `estimates' but it still seems to me the majority of people I am hearing shouting and screaming the loudest are the ones in the Bigger houses... with the Bigger cars... and have currently 3 holidays booked this year.... just saying like??

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
I wonder how many people on 'eco-tariffs' which claim to be 100% or near enough renewable feel about their prices doubling or trebling after being told renewables are much cheaper than fossil fuels. Its almost like its all bullsh1t.

Thousands in China refused to pay mortgages on unbuilt houses that had ceased construction.

If the Chinese can protest under such an oppressive regime then surely we can with all our freedoms?

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
God knows what happened there......

What is Don't Pay UK and will it work? Campaign urges millions not to pay winter energy bills to protest rising prices but legal experts sound a warning
Don't Pay UK is calling for a mass payment strike if energy bills aren't reduced
If the strike is called, millions might cancel their direct debits on October 1
Legal experts warn that energy firms could cut off power to protesters
They could also instruct debt collectors to recoup the money owed
The campaign is calling for a mass energy bill strike and demanding a reduction in energy bills to an 'affordable' level.

It has not specified how much energy firms would need to reduce bills by in order to call off the strike.

The movement has equated the potential strike to the national Poll Tax strike, which saw more than 17 million people refuse to pay the Poll Tax in the UK in the late 80s and early 90s.

Don't Pay UK says it wants to hold energy firms accountable, with its website reading: 'We want to bring them to the table and force them to end this crisis.'

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
This is an estimate for my future bills with Octopus !!!

£6,617.11
Based on the latest industry estimate of your energy use. Regular readings make this more accurate.

I have a detached house and was only me and the wife living here but now 3 adults and a 6 year old but that figure is insane.
Octopus fixed rate deals aren't temping neither !!

You can't wave that 6th-form common room debate bollocks about without providing some figures and workable methods.

"Fairer" taxation always (ALWAYS) involves everybody else paying more tax - and fucked if you're taxing money I've put aside for a rainy day in case I might need it, however much it is - it's already been taxed when I first earned it.

Tax rates, tax bands & allowances, to support your argument please. List of loopholes to be closed would also help.

Start reforming tax laws & closing loopholes and sit back and watch the rush for companies to move (further) off-shore/cancel UK investment.

How will the government cope with/fund all the extra work involved in chasing up the corporations & "super rich" without vastly expanding the HMRC workforce?

Such a workforce will need to include people at least as clever as the tax lawyers & advisers already employed by corporations & the "super-rich", and they won't work for peanuts for the government when they can earn a nice wedge, thank you very much, advising corporations & the "super-rich".

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
“What I don't understand is BP and Shell have both announced massive profits for the last two quarters, so, that in mind, why can't Ofcom keep the cap at a much lower price?”

Those profits are made overwhelmingly outside of Britain. We could tax the fuck out of them but if we did, they wouldn’t be inclined to declare their worldwide profits here for much longer.

The actual answer to this is to use less energy. We have turned into a nation of entitled fuckers who have forgotten how to turn a light off, or how to turn a radiator off so we don’t heat empty rooms, or maybe we could put a jumper on when it’s cold.

We have an array of machines in our houses that demand energy, most of those machines aren’t necessary and are there purely to provide entertainment or make our lives a little bit easier. Even the poorest households have multiple phones, TVs, tablets, games consoles plugged in and sucking up juice.

We have turned into such a nation of spoilt wimps that we deserve everything that comes our way.
