    Default Energy companies going bust

    My energy company (Green.energy) who have given me good service sent me an email that they have ceased trading.

    Unfortunately, I am in credit to about 500, I presume that I can say goodbye to this?

    Thank you Grant, that is reassuring, they will probably sign me up with British Gas, If so, I shall leave them as soon as possible.

    The reason I've got so much credit is that months ago Green gave me a bonus for paying up front.

    Sad to hear, but this was one of the reasons we've always stuck with the 'big boys', such as British Gas, even if sometimes they've been more expensive, rather than moving to whatever 'flavour of the month' new energy supplier was being touted as better, just because it was cheaper.

    However, I hope you guys retain use of the credit you've paid for, which I'm sure you will

    hopefully they'll all go bust and we can go back to a government owned single energy company that supplies at cost plus investment. Like any sane country would have.

    The only reason we have all these companies is to scam the consumer. They saw it in America (where the abuse of the system to make profit was staggering and led to black-outs, google for 'Enron blackouts') and thought 'We'll have a slice of that over here too.'

    Don't talk to me about 'Krankie'; she's dead to me (as they say in the mafia) now that she's brought bona fide vaccine passports into force in Scotland. In fact, most of her behaviour throughout this pandemic has shown her true (authoritarian) colours, and if I were in Scotland I certainly wouldn't be voting for her, as I would've done once!

    As usual, a potentially good idea, if done right (to reduce government control and offer more choice/cost savings for the consumer) has been ruined by taking it to extremes, through sheer greed for gold!
