This is Toryland!! The land of the wealthy. If you are not rich you are worthless!

Whatwe need is a more direct and open reporting of the facts below!  These will impact most people and I think newspapers and the public should be asking WHY???

* British Gas made a profit of £1.3bn between January & June.
* BP announced profits of £6.95 billion between April and June alone.
* Shell has profited by £9.4bn in a year.

The MEN at the top:
* John Pettigrew, boss of National Grid received £6.5m bonus on top of his salary.
* Chris O’Shea, chief executive of British Gas owner Centrica was paid almost £2m last year in salary and benefits.
* Centrica’s non-executive directors were paid almost £1m.
* Scottish Power’s CEO Keith Anderson is on £1.15m.
* E.On boss Michael Lewis is on £1m.
* EDF’s Simone Rossi is also on £1m.
* And their top execs enjoyed a share of £4.65m.
* Peter Simpson of Anglian Water earned a £1.3m pay package.
* Welsh Water bosses awarded themselves bonuses of over £930,000.
* Severn Trent bosses awarded themselves bonuses of £5.56m.

* Thames Water’s Sarah Bentley, received a £727,000 bonus on top of her £2m annual salary.

Meanwhile there are…

* People who haven’t had breakfast and/or lunch TODAY, because they can’t afford it.
* People using FoodBanks because food is becoming more of a luxury than a necessity.
* Children celebrating a birthday without presents.
* Parents worrying about new school uniforms – and some schools enforcing rules which are not cost-effective.
* People who can’t get to work because they can’t afford to put petrol in their cars/pay for public transport anymore.
* People who are working so much they’re making themselves ill, and they STILL CAN’T AFFORD to pay their bills.
* People who have been given fines by these same energy/water companies because they couldn’t afford to pay their bills in the first place – increasing their debt.
* Customers being told to do STAR JUMPS TO KEEP WARM for crying out loud!
* Hose pipe bans when gallons of water leak away everyday.
* Elderly people NOT DRINKING because they’re worried about running out of water!!!

All this and energy prices are set to rise up to 75% in October…

THIS IS MADNESS!.. I’m all for supporting profits ..I’m not for supporting greed at the cost of lives of others..

Something needs to change..

Why are energy companies allowed to get away with this?
Why is  our government not stopping them?? …..in France they have nationalised the same companies!..  And yet our government are putting more plans ahead to continue this daylight robbery from working people…many homes will be repossessed next year. No one will be able to afford to rent or even access a rented home as in Hastings. Most rental homes are now Airbnb due to the changes in tax laws making rentals less desirable to landlords and Airbnb the more profitable option – and don’t get me started on the NHS!

What can we do to stop this blatant fingers up to us all?

It’s bloody depressing and feels as if we will all be back to ‘knowing our place’ Victorian England in our new 3rd world style UK …more reason to have an Irish passport. But really!!! Seriously…what do we do?

Yours, desperately seeking light and positivity.

  1. You’re right, Opher, but you don’t go far enough. The entire political, bureaucratic, academic class is in on the fiddle. As are Big Business and Big Money. And they’ve been in on it for decades.

    As to “Seriously…what do we do?” My answer is, tell the truth. While we still can.

I'd like to hear from you...
