Summer is over, the heat has left the sun, darkness is falling earlier and earlier in the UK, soon the clocks will be going back making it all the more darker. The temperature has fallen significantly after a few weeks of wonderful warm weather.
So what is this to do with anything you ask? well the Greedy Utility companies have struck again by putting up the cost of gas and electricity just at a time when winter peeks its nose in the door.
The cost of Gas and Electricity in this Country is appalling, for many years the upward trend has been a high percentage of hikes in fuel and the British people have suffered under the cosh of greedy fat cats who get more bonuses thanks to the yearly increases, it would not be so bad if the increases were small but they are always over 10 percent each year, sadly salaries do not match the increases which makes an average working family a lot worse of every time it goes up.
Pensioners are the worse hit, they are scared to put on heating in case they get heavy bills which are all too real these days, they tend to cower over one bar electric fires rather than heat up their homes with proper heating, it is no wonder many old folks die of Hypothermia.
I realise most pensioners get some help from the Government with their heating bills annually but it does not cover a quarter of their high winter fuel bills.
It is not only pensioners who suffer, low paid families struggling to buy food let alone spend hundreds on fuel bills also fail to survive.
It is about time this present Government stepped in and capped the cost of rises in fuel and gave the fat cats a kick up the ass for screwing the British people.
It is a well known fact only the wealthy survive in this Country and the poor get stuffed and sadly it looks like this will always be the case.
