I have watched my neighbours struggle to stay warm. Now the fuel allowance is to be lowered.
We live in a small group of retirement bungalows. We are all electric.
I have watched my neighbours struggle to stay warm during the past 2 winters, they stay in bed, keep their curtains closed and only heat one room. Now the fuel allowance is to be lowered.
How can George Osborne reduce the fuel allowance when the heating bills have gone up??? We already live below the poverty line on or pensions.
Every year between 30 to 60 thousand oaps die from the cold, reducing a critical allowance will just kill us off quicker…
i guess that is a saving
Cooking the books is a luxury for Osborne, most of us can not afford to cook at all, in fact a few of my neighbours have run out of elecricity so have no heating, lighting, cooking facilities, but thats ok because there is no food to eat anyway!
This is the reality of 21st Century Uk.
