40 years ago we didn't have £50 a month mobile phone contracts. We didn't have Amazon Prime, Netflix, Apple, Sky monthly contracts. We didn't have a new car every two years on lease. We

Can't argue with any of that :thumbs:

 

Some people are really going to suffer when the cold months kick in.

Why though all the benefit scrotes are getting £1200 to pay their winter fuel bill.

I know its cool to jump on the "cost of living" bandwagon but I'm not that old and I can remember as a kid not having central heating and a coal fire in the front room only. Dad used to know the coal man so always got it "a bit cheaper", joke was I was the coal mans son but even back then we couldn't always afford to buy coal every week. 

Winters were always bad and the condensation on the windows in the bedroom actually turned in to icicles and I'm still alive, I have great memories of visiting my great gran who used to have a knitted blanket wrapped around her she was as fit as a flea and never moaned. 

Different times I know but perhaps we have all got a little bit soft and are falling for another MSN crisis story?

I thought it was all part of the "Net Zero" plan ?

Keep petrol, diesel, gas, electric prices artificially high so we wean ourselves off them and reduce the carbon emissions.

In 2008, Oil was $130 a barrel, petrol was under £1 a litre, now oil is $90 a barrel and petrol is almost £2 a litre.

Go figure !

Cheers.

And my point is my lad just had his £300 quid "cost of living" allowance and went to Longleat for the day! He can get rid of his and his wifes latest mobile phone contract, netflix, amazon, internet and sky before he will heat or eat this winter. My parents, grandparents and great grandparents did'nt have the luxury of that choice and none of them died of starvation or hypothermia.
