Just last week our joint fuel supplier phoned with what they claimed was an enticing offer. We’ve been on a 2 year fixed price deal since March 2016. Knowing this one of their representatives phoned giving us the chance to fix our fuel price now for another 2 years. Apparently because we’d accumulated a positive balance of nearly £400 this enabled them to make this brilliant offer at around £20 a month more than we currently pay.
I’m afraid I was rather short with the representative and made it quite clear I’d take my chances
towards the end of March when I’d survey the market for the best deal. Bugger!
Mind you I shouldn’t be too upset - there’s always someone worse off. The Tories, for example. Having made a total hash of austerity - we appear to be worse off now having taken years of Conservative economic medicine - inflation is picking up 3.1% and wage growth remains piss poor. A savage hike in energy costs which will influence prices across the economy is not going to please the electorate.
It would be ironic if it was Russian gas or the lack of it that did for this shambolic May administration. Another sign of Putin’s growing influence overseas?
