Burn wood!

It's carbon neutral (except for the delivery), and it's not dependent on foreign suppliers.

As you say, a total non-story.

This was a perfectly normal, planned, contracted procedure.

A legacy of Maggie. BTW there has been voltage reductions on the last few days & as I write this (I'm getting 210 volts, it was less than that this morning) in my opinion. I think the 'National Grid' is flat out.

Do the power suppliers have a legal obligation to provide power/energy?

What I mean is that, if the place I work in closes (like it did on Tuesday) because of the snow - people are annoyed, but theres nothing they can do about it.

However if EG British Gas stop supplying gas for whatever reason - is it illegal?
