Hooray, you fucking cretins, now you've given the already profiteering energy companies carte blanche to raise prices by 60%. I thought the role of the regulator was to, what was it now... ah yes, fucking REGULATE the industry, not hand them golden opportunities on a fucking plate when the mood takes them - explains the actions of the fucking FSA, anyway.
Yes, it may be true that there are valid reasons that prices will go up, but what the fucking fuck is the point of "warning" us? Is there anything we can do about it, besides emmigrating? Now you have issued the warning, even if the prices don't need to increase by that much, they probably will anyway, because the energy companies know they won't get much stick from consumers because they've been "warned".
"These are big challenges. Consumers are already enduring high energy prices," said Ofgem chief executive Alistair Buchanan.
Interesting that you recognise that. Shame you're then so willing to encourage future price rises.
