The Government is coming under heavy criticism (again) for not stepping in to control the spiraling fuel bills we face in the UK. For a long time now, campaigners have quoted alarming numbers of elderly and vulnerable people DYING because they cannot afford adequate heating and fuel for cooking, especially during winter months.
Some call for more financial subsidies to help pay for higher bills, but others are demanding the energy providers reduce their tariffs to more reasonable levels. I certainly feel the more ideal of the two would be to reduce the cost of energy supply; there aren't limitless funds to subsidise lower incomes, and there is serious question as to whether the mounting rates are justified in the first place.
