Wrong kind of weather

It seems the perennial energy argy-bargy is flaring again. Now one contributing excuse appears to be "Consumers are not consuming enough, so we may have to hike the prices"

It's all about supply and demand. Centrica will supply gas and demand as much money as they can.

Its really heart-warming to hear our regulators and watchdogs come out with some fine statements, then do very little to justify their existence in the roles they are suppose to play.

I was watching a television program yesterday, which was discussing commodity brokers and how some farmers are having to be very innovative in negotiating crop prices 3 years ahead. What stocks are being withheld, are there for the 'rainy day' fund!.

But gas and electricity price rises are just becoming a total excuse for greed on the behalf of the suppliers. There is suppose to be competition out there, but you tell me where it is?.

It's my fault. Because of the high cost of gas and electric I have reduced how much I use.

I will send a letter to BG explaining this and if they keep putting up the price I will stop altogether and go and live in a tent like Gaddaffi.

If they do listen we may see a small reduction in our bills.

I will let you all know if they give me a reduction.

I do have a garden and a wind generator. I also use solar panels on the caravan.

I can resort to a Kelly Kettle to do a mashing of tea if I want.

I feel for those who are not so self suffient and have to do without to pay their energy bills.

I will survive because I have been able to cut back energy use.
