Maggie Currie

It's that simple. In any situation, if you can stop, ask that question of yourself and accept that no matter how much you want to answer it with "well, actually, I didn't create this"... you did.

Now that Npower has joined the rest of the gang in bumping up bills for Brits, isn't it time something was actually done about it? Yes, Ed's got his price freeze, and the Coalition have their 'wear jumpers to keep warm' enlightened scheme, but this is all a bit like tinkering with the clothing of the people on top of a wedding cake, when the bottom layer looks as if it's crumbling.
