Debt woe blamed on rising bills

Rising energy and council tax bills are forcing increasing numbers of people into debt, a charity has warned.
The Consumer Credit Counselling Service (CCCS) says its average client is spending £32 a month more on utility and council tax bills than in 2003.
Malcolm Hurlston, chairman of the CCCS, said that for many customers, rising utility and council tax bills could prove
the straw that broke the camel's back.
"For those on the brink of debt problems, any substantial increase in utility bills or council tax can have dire consequences and
push them over the edge,
" he said.

Debt levels are beyond the pale in the UK. MEW will not keep them out of trouble forever.
