It will but shared with even fewer greedy bastards meaning they will get even richer.

Nothing wrong with being rich. Unless of course if youíre not.

Very true LL but it's not like the average house owner has a choice anymore which the energy suppliers are manipulating.

More choice than ever. I think the point missed is the energy rises are are not unique to this country. Across the globe prices are going skyward at a speed which make the space shuttle look pedestrian. Besides we no longer rely on British Gas as our sole provider anymore. Iím making not excuses for any energy company. I have no vested interest or money invested in any of them.

The problem is most of us in modern homes need them for the coming winter whoever we choose to go with.

If homeowners don't pay more providers will go out of business leaving just a few to choose from.

There aren't many left except the big boys.

The idea made the Guardian today, so hopefully word will spread now that it's in the 'papers.

It will be interesting to see if the can't-pay-won't-pay movement gains momentum. The danger is thousands may jump on the bandwagon thinking they can get they're energy for free rather than reducing their direcet debit to what would be deemed as a reasonable amount.

If they don't pay anything when would they pay back what they've used🤔 I've seen a few videos of drivers only paying so much of their fuel bills minus what the government have added on which seems more reasonable.

I hope people realise if they don't pay all sorts of things could potentially happen.

Not saying they would happen, but people who are thinking about not paying should at least know the potential risks.

Now the talk from Truss is cutting National Insurance - nobody seems to want to pay towards it and they then wonder why the health service is in a mess and the pension crap

So youíre the one paying for it? Well Iíll take my hat off to you for being so generous of spirit.

You do realise that NI isnít ring fenced for the NHS & Pensions surely? I doubt (though one of your socialist holier than thou acolytes will gleefully dig up the numbers) that all NI annualised contributions go anywhere near paying for those two mammoth drains on the exchequer.

It is a sound bite from a politician aspiring to become leader of a political party who happen to have control of the HOC. Get used to it, everyone of the cunts who sit in the HOC will be at it in two years time when the next GE is called looking for as many votes as they can lay their grubby hands on.
