TURNING UP THE HEAT ON BRITISH GAS
While everyone else is tightening their belts, British Gas today announced a 98% rise in its profits, making £585 million profit in just the first six months of 2010.
Clearly British Gas profited from the very cold winter because older people and others had to use more gas to stay warm.
Rather than further price rises, surely British Gas should be looking at how to help older people with their gas bills in this coming winter and beyond.
