Green Stealth Tax Will Sentence Millions Of Britons To Fuel Poverty (via Tory Aardvark)

Just a little over 10% of your disposable income spent on bills places you in fuel poverty? Good grief, where does that place me then?
After paying my rent alone, my leftover income is a mere £77.62 per week ( often £10 less if less hours available) so after paying out a minimum of £24.50 to the Water Board, £22 to the electricity company, and currently £16 for gas ( I daren’t use it in the winter now!) that leaves me with just £15.12 per week on average to buy food/clothes/transport/all life’s other expenses for myself and my son!
For the record, we do NOT live like Royalty, we rent a tiny damp-ridden horrid flat, best I could manage, rarely have any lights on after sunset, we share one bath per week to save water, ( there is NO shower here sadly), and don’t run the central heating at all, there is only a 2-ring gas hob that rarely works anyhow, and I rarely have anything worth actually cooking in the electric oven!
Since the local bus company recently decided they wanted £24 per week for a local travel pass, we now have to walk everywhere, which on a very poor diet is actually not doing us any good.
I currently hate the Government for preaching one thing to us all with regards to austerity measures, some of us have been living in austere times for a heck of a lot longer than they realise, especially when THEY themselves are lording it up at Wimbledon, and various posh dinner parties lately, and I also hate the utility companies who do seem to be taking the mickey out of us mere mortals, the less I use of anything the more it is costing me………yet they cry “repairs and carbons taxes” yet proclaim such ridiculously HUGE profits on a regular basis!

  1. Happy this was worth the amount of work it took me to be able to view it. Absolutely insane what kind of work arounds I had to do to load your post. Never ever emigrate to Syria, utterly arbitrary websites have been blocked by our ISP’s for no apparent reason. Best Regards, Ashli Showden
