I mean the 1940s are broadly irrelevant anyway for most 21st century comparisons but it doesn’t stop nostalgia for the good old days permeating British political discourse from a generation who weren’t there.

Yes, it's normally a sign of a weak argument being propped up.

Re: Energy companies collapse

BP pull the plug on Pure Planet. No one wants the customers now. I think Octopus said they were taking no more after Avros lot. Nightmare times

Quote from The Sun:
In an online statement Pure Planet said: "Due to the global energy crisis, record high wholesale energy costs, and the restrictions placed on us by Ofgem’s Price Cap, we are unable to keep operating Pure Planet."

It comes as another three energy firms are predicted to collapse before the week is through too.

Analysts reportedly said Ampower, Zebra Energy and Neon Reef could be at risk of collapsing next.
One thing is for sure, energy will be getting much more expensive this winter.

We're going to run out if it's a bad winter, so your bills will be low.

Love that positive spin, keep it up

Us hardy older folk will be fine, we grew up without central heating, double glazing (I remember frost on the inside of those steel framed windows), a fire in one room and draught excluders (snake things) everywhere, no cavity wall or loft insulation.

Plenty of thick jumpers though

It's already much more expensive for companies buying it. For consumers like us, we're lucky as it's price-capped until April next year. That's when we'll notice a hike in bills. Those transferring onto variable rates before then will notice a hike too but not as much as is likely in April.

Apart from pardoning the Salisbury bombers, there's not much we can do about it in the short term.

I remember the fern patterns on the inside of the windows. One small coal fire in the front room, a parrafin heater in the kitchen diner and plenty of blankets on the bed.

You tell the young of today and they don't believe a word of it.

Tin bath in front of the fire


my house has no cavity wall to insulate, no central heating, mostly single glazed windows ,iron stove in living room, the loft is insulated but who lives in the loft kitchen is a walk in fridge from nov-april.

Didn't Edwina Currie say that, perhaps the elderly could wear wooly hats if they're cold. Actually when I think about some of the things she said, like good Christian's don't get aids, you only get cervical cancer if you screw around, she really was the Pritti Patel of her day
