    There's bound to be a surge in fatalities once the current increasing case numbers have been in place a few weeks. And sadly one of the motors driving it is likely to be the health service itself....

    Precisely. See my reply to Nukecad. They expect people just to suck it up. To go back to my TV analogy it's like when my late Uncle told me the price of his TV sports package and was shocked to find...

    Oh yes. To give one example, my old unit rate for gas was 3.274p per kWh. My new one is 3.718p, a 13.5% increase and in normal times a scandal but this year a bargain. The rate they originally...
  6. Energy increases - complain, complain, complain. It can work

    Like everyone else I'm just about to experience a rise in energy costs as my current tariff runs out today. Everyone's circumstances are different but I thought my experience might be of use to...

    Happy Birthday and thanks for all the advice you give on here. Closer to state pension age? I'm too damn close. Only a couple of weeks to go. The important thing for me is it's guaranteed. No worries...

    I'm sorry but how many times does this need to be said. The reason there is no clinical evidence on Pfizer past three weeks is that Pfizer didn't produce any. Unlike Oxford/AstraZeneca which is being...

    Just checked mine and it was paid in on same date. I have a smart meter for electricity but due to location of meter they can't do the same for gas and obviously no one's been to do a reading in the...

    Yes, we'll have to agree to disagree. I remain convinced that the 12-week decision was taken on an on balance assessment rather than a hunch or a guess. If decisions of this magnitude are taken on...

    My version is that the JCVI thought long and hard before issuing its advice. It's not the sort of thing that's done lightly. Yes, production and supply is the major issue. Importation is only a...

    It's not a 'gamble,' it's more a calculated risk. This isn't something entered into lightly.

    Yes, I suppose the 'government official' with a track record of speaking truth to power and who has been open about the risks involved from the outset has become a lackey of the state overnight.

    I think it's PRECISELY the question people should be asking. There are many households in this country where one person will be higher (often significantly so) up the scale for vaccination than...

    I think this is right. If all that was needed to increase vaccination rates in say London for example is to provide more vaccines then there would be no need to reduce supply to the North-East if...

    I know Iceland have recently discontinued some items in their Gino D'Acampo range. I use them a lot as it's easier to get a delivery slot there than the bigger supermarkets and also easier at short...

    You credit the government with a foresight that's been lacking hitherto. If they'd been actively planning to exploit what you - IMO - rightly call their Brexit ineptitude I doubt even they would be...
