New Topic

Has everybody read & is happy with the announcement that the State Fuel "Cap" Price Control will rise next April to £6,000? If they'll ramp up prices so sharply without any thought or care, surely they will have no problems with further price rises up to and certainly not limited to £10,000 per year and beyond. Just goes to show how meaningless & Toothless these "Caps" are. As any real Economist will tell you, Price Controls DON'T work, for obvious reasons.

Some here seem to be living on only a meagre State Pension. Do you think they'll increase Pensions to rise commensurate with these new prices too? Maybe some folk won't be able to afford heating & will be forced into Bed early to avoid death by Hypothermia.
This seems to be an Echo Chamber for a few Pensioners, is this a subject that matters to you?

Said it before, I do like Neil Oliver, that just raises my estimation of him.

Neil Oliver, Indeed 'twas very thought full!

The title of the thread was a let down, It's not a new topic at all, just a new thread so that we can go around in circles once more.
