British Gas puts prices up by 18pc

British Gas customers will pay an extra £200 a year after the energy giant became the latest to raise its energy prices. British Gas is putting its prices up by an average of 18pc or £121 for gas and 16pc or £71 for electricity from August 18. It means that the average household bill for a dual fuel British Gas customer will now go up from £1,096 to £1,288 an increase of £192 or 17.5pc.

  • “House prices unexpectedly rise in June”
    +”PPI at it’s highest in 2 years”
    +”Gas prices rise 18%”

    = hungry & cold people sitting in half a million pound houses that no-one can afford to buy.

    Well done everyone involved.

    Energy prices are up because of peak oil (and yes, speculation too; it makes speculating on energy a good bet). It’s a finite resource dude, you don’t need to make anything up.

  • so why does the UK have price increases?

    Because we are stupid, weak, and poorly represented by our leaders.

  • And we will be expected to pay for unilaterally embarking on a suicidal energy policy at the same time as lending other countries the money to build coal powered powerstations you would not be allowed to build over here .

    There elite’s hatred of Britain knows no bounds .

  • stole a quote from the fantastic Subhumans before looking up the entire lyrics online. Only then did I appreciate the last line! Enjoy:

    Hatred in the hearts of the young population
    Riots in the streets of the “civilised” nation
    Was it the poverty? Was it the police?
    No – it’s the British disease
    The inbred snobbery
    The patriot law
    Violence and robbery
    The state declares war

    The youth of today with a broken voice
    Have got something to say – they ain’t got a choice
    Racist police – backed by the state
    Wipe out the ghetto and build up the hate
    All the wrong answers
    All the wrong ideas
    The riot lasts a day
    But the problem lasts for years

    The great British public they can’t understand
    Why should there be riots in this civilised land?
    Why is the country being pulled to its knees?
    Ignorance is the British disease
    Ignorance is the British disease
    Ignorance is the British disease
    Ignorance is your disease
    Ignorance and apathy
    Ignorance and bigotry
    You found it all so easy to ignore the people who complained
    and let their anger rise in flames
    You thought this country was so great
    that nobody could ever hate the way the system treated them
    And then you wondered why they burnt your buildings down
