“Privatising essential services is like taxing the consumers including poor and old to make even more rich tiers of management”

“British gas are ripping me off”

“I was put on the wrong tariff when I switched my account to Scottish Power [from E.On] One year later I am still trying to obtain the discount I should have had. It is impossible to speak to the same person and I have had a succession of calls going over the same ground. The process is far to complex and the default option always seems to favour the supplier.”

“Contracts and cancellation fees reduce competitive opportunities!”

“the price has almost doubled since then tho, so i’m thinking of switching my supplier again. edf seems like a very good deal!”

“needs some clear, honest comparisons”

“I found it relatively easy to switch”
