Re: British Gas ready to increase prices

according to the chief of british gas.... on BBC news just now.... although it is a price increase....
it means that customers will pay less than they did last year.... ( I can`t remember the reasoning he gave for that)....
but he did say that BG has not increased its prices for 2.5 years !...

Re: British Gas ready to increase prices

thanks shutter
people cant afford to pay any more
their being made by the government by law to
subsidize  private commercial arrangements
and have deregulated the free market to allow foreign global cartels
like british gas(BG Group plc-a multinational company with operations in 27 countries. Key areas for the company include  )
   
   * USA
   * Trinidad & Tobago
   * Brazil
   * Nigeria
   * Tunisia
   * Egypt
   * UK
   * Oman
   * Norway
   * Kazakhstan
   * India
   * Australia
to buy up all  vital utilities here and trade here while
many people are having to leave the country
because of the high taxes, the high cost of property,
the general apathy of the people just working to pay bills
many of whom now cant

Re: British Gas ready to increase prices

When I switched to Energy Smart, variable monthly DD, I did open a separate savings account for energy bills.
As I was about £200 in credit, that paid off the first three months and I kept making a monthly payment into savings account. When the actual bill was less than the monthly payment the balance went into savings and I'm now funding the higher payments extra from savings. One year later there's still just under £200 in savings before WFP goes in.
It's more for a bit of fun as I objected to BG telling me how much monthly DD was going to be and, on one occasion having to explain to them that in UK we have 12 months in a year.
The maths standard of the people calculating what one should pay was actually pathetic  Cry
