Yes mine is no joke next month it goes up from 45 a month to 126 per month, which is a 181% increase, and, I don't have any arrears - the family are looking into it for me.

We are only in a small flat and our gas bill was horrendous! - and we are both out at work a lot of the time. The continuing increase in utility bills is frightening!

On a serious note Chris... if you are with NPower and are registered disabled, ask them to put you on 'First Step Programme', and they'll see about putting you onto the lowest possible Tarif

I thought that they were purely nuclear - electric.

I want a gas and electric supplier to change to.

I have a duel-fuel account with N Power, Chris.
They do both gas & Elec, and give a discount for using both with them. We are on the FST Tarif (First step Tarif), which is the lowest possible Tarif.

Chris if you check out this link, it may help you make your mind up.
At one time not all companies were allowed to serve every area, putting your postcode in this link will show you companies that serve Your area.
Best of luck regards Dave

PS when i last got news of the supplier wanting to put the bill up i explained that our usage was not constant over the year as we spend some time at our holiday caravan, if you have a reason why your usage increased over a certain time , ther may be room for ammendment,

Can't afford to change over this month shall have to wait a couple of months.

Nell is very ill and I am expecting her to be taken into hospital either tonight or tomorrow.

If something is not done, soon, then there is a very real chance that she will die; I am very worried and getting to a rip-roaring bloody angry state that yet again she is in terrible pain but there is no sign of any operations.

If the worst does happen, I shall sue, not only the Hospital Authority but also Gordon Bloody Brown.

Interestingly enough these idiots who pass so many laws that most people do not even have time to read them, passed the latest series of anti-discrimination laws and DDA and Equality Act and there is a 'Quite Interesting' fact that since all of Parliament is subject to the provisions of the DDA, this supercedes all Parliamentary Acts; that overturns the principle of 'Parliamentary Privilege' that legal barrier to taking MPs and Ministers to court for their decisions taken in Parliament.

Everything is now 'on hold' and we shall see what happens from here on, I feel very drained and my stress levels are through the roof.

If I were a totally business orientated person I would just live for that, but I am not and this having to drop everything at a moments notice is playing havoc with my life.

Do I run away and say, sorry my disability before yours?

No, when one takes on any relationship then one takes on everything to do with that person, good and bad.

So I shall care for Nell and we shall see what we can do to make life a little easier.

I can give 14 days and that will have to be long enough for the various agencies in London to sort out backup for Nell.

Shall have a look at direct payments for her to employ her own people.
