The Gas Bill



Today the Gas bill arrived.  Naturally we arose to frozen landscapes, home and feet!  This in the week the Gas company ended the connection with their chairman, offering him a mere £13 million payoff.  The tax payer however will be happy, the taxpayer is not paying for a nationalised gas company.  Those who 'Told Sid' under the Thatcher tyranny and rushed to buy shares in these companies can possibly gather enough from their dividend to pay the colossal bills 'Sid' and his greedy friends are charging for the gas.  I wandered round to the library to keep warm reading books but found the place full of poor people reading books to keep warm there.  
The Electric company have generously warned us the bills will all rise because of this governments absurd energy policies so I am looking forward to that increase.  I have modified the payments to suit myself, and now will be running on the spot and stretching a lot to avoid hypothermia.  

Good job I am not one to complain.....

It is dreadful that governments allow ...no, encourage...privatisation and it is similarly dreadful that everyone puts up with it.

I remember those frost forests we used to get on the windows as a child in the days before central heating. Now I miss the frost forests because they were amazingly beautiful, but not enough to turn off the heating. That's a lovely photo of your park.

Fly, Tory policy has always been to privatise, and those who vote for it suffer most. Self, not service.

Jenny, I still get those. Lovely when really cold.

Lassie, You have such taste!

With all of your own gas reserves to consider, maybe you should go into business for yourself? Of course, I suppose having a hose duct-taped where it would need to be would be rather uncomfortable, but it would be a small price to pay for the greater well-being of your neighbors--right?
