Whilst The Rich Get Richer The Poor Freeze: No More Deaths From Fuel Poverty

nomoredeathsfromfuelpoverty-980x778

Every Winter, in one of the richest countries in the world, people die because they can’t afford to put the heating on.  Yet still fuel prices soar with the poorest expected to pay the most through thieving pre-payment meters.

Every last penny made in profit by the big energy companies is paid in blood.  They know if they put prices up then people will die –  often older people or those with serious health conditions.  They put prices up anyway.  As Fuel Poverty Action say on their website:

“In 2012/2013 10,000 people died from fuel poverty, including thousands of people in London, and we are likely to learn that thousands more died last winter. At the same time the Big Six energy companies made £3.7bn in profit – this is equal to £370,000 profit for every person who died.

Much of that profit comes from pensioners, people living on meagre benefits or those earning paltry wages.  After landlords have had their slice of the UK’s social security budget, much of the rest ends up in the pockets of energy companies.  Yet it is benefit claimants themselves who are called scroungers, not the vultures rinsng them from all sides. with soaring rent, bills and food prices.  Staying alive in the UK – not being happy – just being alive, is becoming a daily struggle for those on the lowest incomes.  The fat cat rich scoff at this, or pretend it isn’t happening.  But nobody can deny the mounting body count.  This wonderful fucking free market we are all supposed to worship is killing people.  We have to stop that, because they won’t.  They are getting richer and don’t care.

A day of action against fuel poverty is taking place this Friday 28th November.
Meet at 11.30am outside the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall before marching to Energy UK Regents Street (facebook page).  A Pensioner’s Block is meeting at 11am at the main entrance of Charing Cross station, join the facebook event here.

    • “THE £2 BILLION POUNDS THAT THE HMRC CAN’T ACCOUNT FOR WOULD SAVE 30, 000 PENSIONERS LIVES THIS WINTER”

      GEOFF REYNOLDS | November 21, 2014 at 9:42 am | Reply

      “HMRC cannot account for £2 billion”

      The fact that two billion quid set aside as tax relief for “ENTREPERNEURIAL RELIEF” has gone walkabout, beggars belief, or does it?…………………………………..

      • ………….the only time the poorest UK pensioners will feel the heat from the gas is when their coffins are collapsing in the crematorium ovens.

        • ……………makes one wonder if old wrinkly has fitted thermostatic radiator valves at her 775 room palace, which incidentally, is only a stones throw from the nearest food bank………………….

          or a million miles from her impoverished subjects………………..

          • Every year in the UK between 25–30,000 deaths are linked to cold weather. Keeping warm is a real concern for the elderly at this time of year and a number of steps can be taken to prevent hypothermia. The NHS can offer ‘hypothermia alarms’ which will monitor the ambient temperature; when the temperature falls below a designated level the alarm will sound alerting any carers in another room (similarly to a baby monitor).

            ……………………………you dont need an alarm to tell you when you are too cold, it will be written on the coroners report.
            Alarm bells have been ringing in Westminster for as long as i can remember, but they choose to look away, satisfied that the cold weather will have no impact upon themselves………….

  1. It would help tremendously if so many of these pensioners had the sense not to vote for the Tory bastards, which they do in droves. Turkeys. Christmas. And if it’s not them, it’s Tory Plus, UKIP.

  2. Reblogged this on Still Oaks.

  3. overburdenddonkey

    it’s really up to us, we the people, to shake up the UK political establishment, rattle our chains until they break… http://new.livestream.com/IndependenceLive/RIC2014 hear the words, passion and determination of; saffron dickson, cat boyd, robin mcalpine, patrick harvie (scotgreen msp) etc etc…

  4. im making a fortune out of this.

  5. The trouble is, as you accurately pointed out, the people who die are the poor elderly, sick and disabled, which saves the govt money. Vultures – you got that right too.

  6. State pensioners get a one sum Cold Weather Payment of £250 no matter the weather over the winter. Disabled people get a payment if it gets below zero for seven days in a row of £25 over that 7 days week. That is not the case if you have been sanctioned – No Cold weather Payment.

    • That has been so for over 15 years. Not keeping up with inflation & price rises.

    • It’s not £250, one of the first things Cameron did when he slithered into power, was to cut the CWP to £200. I know, I’ve just had mine. As for ice days, that £25 payment applies to those on Pension Guarantee Credit.

      • exactly and the eligibility is determined in the warmth of the September month prior – as we all know it is much warmer in September than cold dark February

    • …………….but those disabled, like myself, who had their lifetime disability awards stolen by the DWP, are left with nothing. A fate just above death.

    • I don’t know if you’ll see this reply now with the voids article being the 2nd one down, but if you’re disabled you can now apply for a £135 grant from any fuel company each year. It’s really helped me these last few years, but probably only makes up for how much they’ve all put the prices up!

  7. There needs to be price controls on heating.

  8. Lots of Heating On Buses & Trains With Your Freedom Travel Pass !!! All Day Heating !!

  9. Fuel poverty is when one chooses not to heat the stables, Self disconnection is when one chooses a below zero lifestyle.

  10. The Wonders of DWP never cease.

    If they cannot kill the old by “Cold”, lets see if we can kill them another way by starving them of thier Pension as they’re not working.

    • “PASSIVE EUTHANASIA”

      The sister of a mentally ill man who starved to death in David Cameron’s constituency after his benefits were wrongly cut has accused the Government of “killing the very vulnerable”, as official figures emerged suggesting dozens of people could have died in similar circumstances.

      Freedom of Information requests by the Disability News Service revealed that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has investigated decisions made about welfare payments following the deaths of 60 people since 2012 – the first time the DWP has tacitly admitted there could be a link.

      However, campaigners believe the number of deaths could be far higher, claiming the changes to benefit rules have amounted to “passive euthanasia”.

      A public meeting in Witney in Oxfordshire on Thursday will hear from the sisters of two men who died after their benefits were cut, Mark Wood, 44 and David Clapson, 59. Mr Wood, who had a number of mental health problems, was found starved to death last year after his benefits were reduced to £40 a week because he was deemed fit for work. A government review later found that this decision had been a mistake.

      The Prime Minister has said his death was “tragic” and pledged to “help find the answers to make sure that lessons are learnt”. However, Mr Wood’s sister Cathie Wood, 49, said she felt that members of the Government believed “these people aren’t worth having around”.

      “They must, in their secret hearts, think that,” she said. “It worked; he died. They say they want to protect the very vulnerable, and they are killing the very vulnerable. I think it is a really huge, hidden scandal and there are going to be more people who die this winter.”

      Mr Wood, who had been “desperately trying to be independent”, was reclusive, and only told his family that his benefits had been cut shortly before he died. The coroner said his death was probably partly caused by his being “markedly underweight and malnourished”.

  11. Apart from the poverty, those pre-payment meters make life a hell of anxiety and inconvenience. You never know how close you are to the emergency level, at which point you have to rush out, whatever the weather, and top up, provided a topping-up place (and the money) is available. And of course, you can’t afford to pay in more than necessary so as to have a comfortable margin.

  12. “THE DWP KILLING MACHINE MURDERS PENSIONERS AS WELL”

    ……………as well as what, you may ask?

    As well as the poor and disabled it would seem!

    A few years back the DWP tried to distance itself from the startling rise in benefit related mortality statistics, trying every trick in the book to play dumb on the rising carnage……………..

    They even told lies in freedom of information requests;

    “The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has sparked fresh anger after it finally admitted that it does carry out reviews into the deaths of some claimants of disability benefits. The DWP had previously stated, in a Freedom of Information (FoI) Act response, that it did not hold any records on deaths linked to, or partially caused by, the withdrawal or non-payment of disability benefits.”

    Closing their eyes whilst putting their hands over their ears did not seem to be doing the trick so they now have a new approach, “LET’S PRETEND WE ARE INVESTIGATING SOME OF THE DEATH’S “.

    This new strategy on, hide from the truth, is called a “PEER REVIEW”;
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has carried out 60 secret reviews into benefit-related deaths in less than three years, Disability News Service (DNS) can reveal.

    DWP released the figures in response to a series of Freedom of Information Act (FoI) requests by DNS.

    It said in one response that DWP had carried out “60 peer reviews following the death of a customer” since February 2012.

    There have been numerous reports of disabled people whose deaths have been linked to the employment and support allowance (ESA) claim process, or the refusal or removal of ESA and other benefits, including the writer Paul Reekie, who killed himself in 2010, and the deaths of Nick Barker, Jacqueline Harris, Ms DE, and Brian McArdle.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    ………………………so what exactly is the purpose of a peer review?
    There must be only one answer, “absolutely nothing”

    Since when does a proven murderer have the power to invesigate their own crimes?

    “THE DWP FEAR AN INDEPENDENT INQUIRY LIKE A VAMPIRE FEARS A CRUCIFIX”
    ………….any in house committee investigation would be another whitewash.

    MARK HARPER, the new disability denial czar has now plucked up courage to become the latest DWP trigger man. The instant he took office he received the smoking gun that puts innocent people to death………..

    “The new Conservative minister for disabled people has insisted that his department is right to ignore reports of deaths linked to the loss or non-payment of disability benefits”.

    “Mark Harper said he did not accept that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) should be collecting this information or trying to learn lessons from such deaths.”

    PLEASE NOTICE WHAT HARPER HAS SAID………

    “HIS DEPARTMENT IS RIGHT IS RIGHT TO IGNORE REPORTS OF .DEATHS LINKED TO THE LOSS OR NONE PAYMENT OF DISABILITY BENEFITS”

    This statement, made by Harper will be his downfall. In making it, he has openly admitted that the deaths are inextricably linked to benefit cuts of which he is aware.

    ………………add to this the thirty odd thousand pensioners who will inevitably succumb to the elements this winter and you have a state assisted killing machine that hails it’s savings above the lives of it’s victims.

    ……………………DWP (DEATH WILL PREVAIL)

    • Whilst attending an ESA TRIBUNAL in Scarborough magistrates earlier this year, i informed the magistrate, JUDGE WALL, that my family and i had been struggling to buy food and that we had not lit our fire for four years.

      he laughed in my face…………………………

  13. from The Independent –

    A homeless man who died in a fire in a bin storage area near Newcastle may have started the blaze to keep warm, it has emerged. Darren Robson, 43, was found dead on Friday morning in the seaside town of Whitley Bay. Firefighters had been called to a blaze in a wheelie bin storage area behind shops at 6.20am and recovered his body after it was extinguished.

    Mr Robson’s friend, Chris Parker, told the Newcastle Chronicle he had asked him for a room for the night hours before he died. “He asked to stay at mine but I couldn’t let him,” the 29-year-old added. “He used to sleep on the beach and light fires to keep warm, so that’s probably what happened. “He has been sleeping [in the bin store] for a while just to stay out the cold. I think he had a blanket and a mattress in there.”

    Northumbria Police said the investigation was continuing and they could not confirm the claims.

  14. The U.K.’s power generation and distribution network was sold off to foreign sharks years ago resulting in reductions in living standards dropping for employees and higher bills /poorer service for customers. The U.K. subsidises energy prices in france via higher tariffs from french owned energy interests,whilst prices in France prices are capped by legislation to protect the populace from price ringing. Own a chunk of St.Tropez? Cheaper leccy than Felixstowe;
    Just another example of the executive welfare state and the E.U. old boy network.
    Keep voting in career party politicians for more of the same.

  15. Reblogged this on Beastrabban’s Weblog.

  16. @Gander up
    “Just another example of the executive welfare state”
    What you mean is the Corporate State. We live under corporatism – the new touchy-feely word. I prefer the old term: FASCISM

    • Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism.

      Even a quick snapshot from Wikipedia shows that the ideology is not FASCISM – it fails on the three exclusive to national interests counts, the ideology in question is hostile to the nation state.

      • overburdenddonkey

        mr r
        fascism is an end product, not defined by how it is produced…

        • If the end product is not defined by how it is produced then how can the production methods be attributed as fascism before the end product is realised, with that definition gauge every political thought could be labelled as being fascist.

          To be honest in pop-politics it has become more of political swear word to define any policy that is opposed by the utterer than a serious attempt to describe political movements.

  17. Anyone live in Merseyside?

    • “FLAGSHIP UNIVERSL CREDIT, TITANIC WASTE OF TAXPAYERS MONEY, MORE LIKE”

      If anything has led to the deaths of more UK citizens, universal credit must be top of the list………….

      The one giant fiasco is nothing more than a charade to protect the clown prince of welfare reform, IAIN DRUNKEN FOOL.
      Love him or hate him, this dolt has blasted more than a billion (a lot more if the truth be known), on a simplistic dream than has no creedence whatsoever.

      We must be the only nation in the world that works in reverse, designing software that we have to tailor pick the claimants to fit……………

      Behind the scenes are literaly hundreds, if not thousands of staff, who have to unravel the complexities that the software can;t handle.
      They too are pulling their hair out at the brainchild of a moron on a project smitten by fuck ups……….

      Even the project bosses decide to bugger off sharply as the LA LA LAND escapade become more elusive. One boss had a year off sick on full pay, the other just one month on sick before his hasty retreat.

      In february it was reported that only 2720 people were utilising the universal credit, most of them handpicked to suit the software………….
      Staggeringly this worked out to be good value for money, meaning for each person on the scheme it had cost £225 thousand pounds !!!

      …………there is an old saying, “BUILD A MACHINE THAT ONLY A FOOL CAN USE, AND ONLY A FOOL WILL USE IT”

      ask yourselves, “HOW MANY OF THESE PEOPLE WOULD BE STILL WITH US TODAY, IF THIS MONEY HAD NOT BEEN WASTED?”

      “HOW MANY PENSIONERS COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED FROM HYPOTHERMIA AND DEATH THIS WINTER?”

      I wish these people would come back and haunt the cowards that strut the steps of Westminster, the natural born killers……………….
