I did a tour of the small business units on my estate this pm, & held a TRA

10 of 27 are closing next month as their bills have all increased by 400% to 700%

50 jobs lost

11 have contracts to next April, & the other 6 for 18 months

corner shop cafe closing too, 11 staff going
#EnoughlsEnough #energy #EnergyCrisis

is anyone else in my circle able to check with mixed use housing estates in their area, on how their small business units are doing please?

I *honestly* do feel as though I'm the only account here highlighting these issues

#EnoughIsEnough #EnergyCrisis
Zahawi is "deeply concerned"
Truss "no new taxes, or rationing"

cutting the NICs & no new windfall taxes, ultimately means the biggest shrinking of the state we have ever seen

think of the direct impact on Social Care & NHS Image
SMEs, already facing insurmountable exponential energy costs, are also facing Consumer spending already falling off a cliff, 10% down Image
#EnoughIsEnough #EnergyCrisis
Lord Prem Sikka, Richard Murphy & David Blanchflower have written to the BoE urging £200 BILLION of spending to avoid meltdown, just as I suggested on the 10th March, also urging nationalisation of energy (which tories will never do) Image

don't be fooled by #TuftonSt "think tanks" - it's all an effort to concentrate power & wealth in the hands of the 1% and there's real world evidence:
Tax cuts for the rich…

These 6 videos could massively slash fuel bills! 💵 + COULD COST NOTHING!

Please share far & wide you could be really helping someone out this winter!

The first 'The Secret to Boiler Efficiency' is full quick wins anyone can do for up to 15% saving.
The second is more advanced to really refine your efficiency to its max! It's all about squeezing those last flow temperature drops down.

Maybe one for the more technically minded, or find a Heat Geek who knows all this! This could save up to 15%.
This next one is all about timing your heating, should I leave my heating constantly on, or time to come one as often as possible..? Savings possible here could be over 10%.

1/ Thread: Why #Starmer's "plan" isn't even close to a solution and will do nothing to tackle the root causes of problems in the energy market or inflation itself. #EnergyCrisis #EnergyPrices
2/ It's only for six months:
There's nothing to stop energy companies immediately jacking up prices once the "freeze" ends. This underlines the problem that the "free market" does not work and cannot work in a natural monopoly like energy. #EnergyCrisis #EnergyPrices
3/ A policy by the establishment, for the establishment:
The plan is simply an attempt to cover over the cracks until the controversy dies down. It's therefore primarily a means of safeguarding the status quo rather than a genuine attempt to deal with the underlying issues.

How to tackle the current climbing Inflation:
Consumer price index (CPI) June 2022 stood at 8.2%.
From the ONS report linked below:…
"The main drivers of inflation were from housing and household services (principally from electricity, gas and other fuels, and owner occupiers' housing costs) and transport (principally from motor fuels)."
From the Washington Post 8th August:
"Recent second-quarter earnings reports proffered eye-popping figures: BP posted second-quarter profits worth $8.5 billion, its biggest windfall in 14 years...

@UKLabour's dire response to the energy crisis and the false premise on which it is based...
#energybills #EnergyPrices
2/Incompetent messaging:
Announcing their policy drive, Labour confirmed that they weren't yet "on it", while criticising the gov. for not already doing more.… #energybills #EnergyCrisis #EnoughIsEnough Image
3/ Redundant economics:
Labour's "plan" is to double down on the trickle-down economics that led us into this mess, offsetting the cost of their plan to end the overcharging of people on pre-pay meters by giving the already profit-swollen companies even more cash. #EnoughIsEnough

Struggling to pay 𝐄𝐍𝐄𝐑𝐆𝐘 𝐁𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬?⚡️💷


@MartinSLewis has given really helpful💡Advice & ⚠️Warning 👇🏽

#EnergyPrices #CostofLiving #EnergyBills #Help Image
DO NOT refuse to pay your energy bill in October. Below is how you can make a stand and hurt your energy supplier without getting into debt/damaging your credit rating:

1. Cancel your DD & pay for what you use each month.

2. You then need to 📝 of complaint to your supplier
Once that complaint had been raised, your energy supplier can't take any debt collection work on your account, so they can't pass your details to the credit reference agencies etc. That bill gets put on hold whilst they try to resolve your complaint.

Our analysis of materials released by @IESO_Tweets in response to our Freedom of Information Request

2. According to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator’s (IESO) October 7, 2021 (misleading) report,Decarbonization and Ontario’s Electricity System, phasing-out gas power by 2030 would raise residential electricity bills by 60% [page 1].

3. In response to a Freedom of Information Request (FOI), we obtained drafts of the IESO’s report. These drafts reveal the following facts:

I've opened the dreaded letter from my energy provider confirming price increases. My #energybill has risen from £116 to £290 a month. My other bills are on the rise & I've really been feeling the pinch in the supermarket. I'm more & more worried for all of us #energyprices 1/5
How are people expected to survive, let alone live? How can your average low income person/household afford this at all when I'm worrying myself, as a medium income person? If other countries can cap it at 4%, then why can't the UK? 2/5
Having been on a low income before, for many years, I know for many people/households, there's nothing left to cut back on. If this was 15 years ago, I'd be starving myself to feed my kid, getting a 2nd or even 3rd job or getting into more debt - probably all three 3/5

#heatoreat #energyprices #EnergyCrisis #energy #CostOfLivingCrisis

tweeps, just got in from work, shit just got real....... Mum's in tears.....

standing charge also doubled
two further things to note,

the letter also warns that their bill will increase *the the same percentage* in October, ie: to £6,600

the doubling of standing charges is, according to Martin Lewis, to *cover the cost of the companies which went bankrupt*

and I have a question
how the hell are businesses going to cope, expenditure will feed back in to price rises across the board, including food.

Also: what about old peoples' homes??????

there is no cap for business.....

The 5-year contract which was signed in 2019 foresees the transit volumes of 40 bcm in 2021, which amounts to 109 mcm/day.
It is deeply alarming 🚨 and quite informative to note that Gazprom is now paying for capacity and not using it!
Since the beginning of the month, Gazprom is shipping 86 mcm/day which is ~25% less than what it's paying for. There is a great disconnect between the words and the actions when it comes to the role of the Russian Federation in the European gas crunch.

Ukraine stands ready to transport as much gas as Europe needs and our spare capacity, available at this very time, is nearly twice that of #NordStream2
