“That’s tip number one,” confirmed Simon Williams, Head of Evil at Energy Bastards Ltd.
“Tip number two is putting a jumper on. I imagine you people aren’t really smart enough to come up with that one yourselves?

Hayley Rice commented, “I am retired, wheelchair-bound, and I live in a bungalow with no stairs.
“Literally none of those tips help me. What WOULD help me would be the assurance of Energy Bastards that their prices will not go up too much, or even that they will be using their enormous profits to help offset these bills for their customers.”
Williams chuckled, “Don’t be silly.
“We’re Energy Bastards, not Energy Nice People. The clue’s in the name, love.”
