Fuel advice cold comfort

THIS coalition Government keeps on giving us a load of rubbish about how concerned they are regarding the affects that the high fuel prices have on the pensioners.

Yet when the fuel prices are rising so sharply they have taken away £50 from the winter fuel allowance - £250 down to £200 will inevitably result in a higher death rate for old people this coming winter.

The Government made a big show of the so-called crisis meeting with the fuel companies and all that they could come up with was to advise consumers to shop around - it seems that they are possibly afraid of the fuel bosses.
