Don't know why it's difficult to understand it's a very common phrase in public sector businesses. We may all live in this world together but all schemes like this do is provide a sticking plaster through which already overtaxed people get hit. It's not a long term solution it's just lazy policy.

Also not fussed about your respect
Energy bills is an area that needs to be addressed.

Many people on lower income find themselves in rented accommodation with pre-pay meters installed. No only are they expected to pay for their energy in advance, they are also expected to pay the highest tariffs in the land. It's a totally unfair situation that needs to be changed.

I amazed how some people have an issue with those that are out of work getting a 'helping hand' for their energy bills. We all know how prices escalate which has an impact on us all. However those out of work people will be using more energy during the day than those that are not. They, as well as OAP's should be given a 'special tariff'. The utility companies can most definitely afford it.

Nobody should be in the position that they are cold or can't afford to cook. If it's a subsidy from utility companies rather than a government payout I'm struggling to see how anyone can complain.

The subsidies are passed on to Bill payers as part of government policy

Ignoring the useral green eyed i doubt this would benefit many, most poor people rent as such they get white goods from the landlord as its the law you can't be left without cooking facilities or a fridge.

I doubt a council would be able to leave someone without either, I'm not sure about that. I know a man who rented his home to the council for them to give to a tennant and they insisted that it have a basic level of furnishings including fridge, cooker and kitchen table with chairs.

You seriously think the council provide a cooker , fridge and table & chairs if you rent a house from them ? .. You need to get out more. And which law states you can't be left without cooking facilities and a fridge? You have no idea at all what you are talking about.

It was Ealing council and they were renting the property to asylum seekers and demanding minimum furnishing, the owner moved to Wales so didn't want to bother with being a landlord the council offer included them managing the property on his behalf so he wouldn't have to do anything and just get paid every month by them.

I've never seen a rental offered without basic amenities .

Also when there was gas repairs at my parents they got given a electric hot plate because they couldn't be left without cooking facilities and that place was council

What an individual council offer to asylum seekers is a whole lot different to what is on offer to " normal" tenants . A local authority property is completely empty and any white goods you supply yourself , usually through a loan from the dss paid back out of your benefits. If the council cause disruption to your living standard by way of repairs of course they will offer loans of equipment , but this is completely different to what you suggested. In 99.9% of cases with local authority you get the keys to an empty , and I mean empty , house . No carpets no white goods no curtains no table no chairs and if you are lucky and in receipt of the correct benefits you may get a loan against your benefits , if not you furnish it yourself like everyone else .. Obviously asylum seekers get more humane treatment by the sound of it .

I've never rented a place where a fridge was included and I've rented quite a few places in my time... Cooker sometimes. Only when it's built in though, otherwise not.

I've never even seen a built in cooker full stop, or built in fridge outside of ikeas showroom
