When Theresa May came to power she said she would be thinking of and acting for the little people in preference to the powerful and entitled.

How long before she will tackle the Standing Charge on utility bills which loads costs upon poor folk and low users?

The Standing Charge had begun to fall out of use until it was suddenly encouraged by the Nasty Tory Party in coalition with the Nasty Libdems, acting on the advice produced by a committee chaired by a Nasty Labour Party MP.

NPower leaped at the opportunity and raised my gas bill by 650%. Fortunately I was able to find a supplier with a proportional Standing Charge. But my interest was piqued.

And now Anglian Water has spotted a nice source of free money.....
