I agree Hostafan. There are three utilities which are vital for our country's security so should NEVER have been privatised and those are gas, electricity and water. They need to be re-nationalised and a law making which forbids them ever to be privatised again.
Thanks to Dave, my electricity supplier was given free rein to change tariffs in order to 'make it easy' to change from one to the other. As I'm all electric (no gas supply) and was on 'economy 10' (so I get 3 hours of power to the storage heaters during the day, so I can feel some warmth other than first thing in the morning), they put the price up of the equivalent new tariff by 17%. I've contacted every supplier in the country and NONE of them will offer me an alternative: "Oh, we don't do that one."
