Emergency cold weather payments for the elderly

Interesting that the Government are going to pay OAPs £25 a week towards heating bills during the current cold weather. Disgraceful that tax payers are going to have to foot the bill and further line the pockets of energy companies, when the Government should have forced them to reduce their prices in line with oil prices months ago! Personally I'm sick of excuses for the continued high prices of gas & electricity. They were damn well quick enough to put them up in line with oil prices, and they should be forced into bringing them down again. It's months since oil prices tumbled for heavens sake. Promises to do so later this year aren't going to help pay winter bills. The Government should act now, no more excuses, and also impose a hefty tax on energy company profits.

Of course I agree that we shouldn't let the pensioners freeze, but I do also agree that the government should be able to do something about the energy companies. They are taking the biscuit.

I know that they buy fuel in advance but prices have been decreasing for over 6 months now, it's time they started reducing... I think they are waiting for the cold spell to end so they can make even more profit.

This country is falling to bits!

No, take some action against the energy companies instead of expecting tax payers to foot the bill. This government is a pathetic joke! Most of our utilitiy companies are owned by foreigners, a good example of how short sighted the idiots are.
