Fuel Poverty Action 28/11/2014 - IoD to Energy UK

Went along to this FPA action, and not just because we are personally affected - helloooo Southern Electric/SSE trying to charge us £2k+ for 3 months worth of electricity. A mistake in this case... How many others have 'mistakes' that are not as blatant or advocated effectively against?

A rhetorical question. Capitalism has a lot to answer for, but hey! A tiny percentage of the population, the 1%, get wealthier on the backs of these pensioners' deaths. Shame on them.

David Clapson killed by benefit sanctions and pre-payment metersDavid Clapson killed by benefit sanctions and pre-payment metersFuel Poverty Action 28/11/2014

From The Guardian 9/9/2014:

The coroner said that when David Clapson died he had no food in his stomach. Clapson’s benefits had been stopped as a result of missing one meeting at the jobcentre. He was diabetic, and without the £71.70 a week from his jobseeker’s allowance he couldn’t afford to eat or put credit on his electricity card to keep the fridge where he kept his insulin working. Three weeks later Clapson died from diabetic ketoacidosis, caused by a severe lack of insulin. A pile of CVs was found next to his body.
