Brits face “Heat or Eat" living near London

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

Remember "Heat or Eat"? It’s still happening. In fact, it’s worse than ever.

Heat or eat is something we saw in the newspapers about ten years ago. It was a scandal that our older generation was facing a "heat or eat" struggle during the winters – not having enough money to pay for both food and heating. And as a result, pensioners across the country were freezing to death and starving to death — something NOBODY would expect in a First World country.

And while this still happens — it’s a tragedy that our government simply can’t do enough about given their financial priorities currently lie elsewhere — it’s now spreading to professionals who live on the outskirts of London.

Well, Theresa May was able to did up 4 billion pounds to give to South Africa, and always has funding for illegal migrants, and so-called refugees from Syria originating and escaping from Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, et cetera.

How about worrying about Brits first. That would be a nice change.

It’s here too although maybe not quite as bad yet. Canadians are fooling themselves if they think we’re better off. The brainwashing continues and the ridiculous restrictions are out of control. Action, through means of law and/or force, is needed to stop this insane war that is building up to destroy our country, our freedom and our lives. No action = defeat.

The heat or eat dilemma faces many people in Britain. I myself doubt that many “professionals” are seriously affected, but the poor, the sick, the disabled, the unemployed, are hugely affected by this scandalous situation.
The heat or eat syndrome is a consequence of the privatisation of state-owned energy companies in 1990. With privatisation, and the imposition of a dual burden unknown under state ownership of (a) paying directors vast salaries, and (b) guaranteeing high shareholder returns, the consumer – Joe Public – was faced with energy costs that are many times higher than they were when electricity and mains gas companies were state owned, and the generation of profit was not of prime importance.
Here’s just one example of the rip-off approach practiced by the privatised electricity companies: between 2005 – 2009, the UK price of domestic electricity nearly doubled, from 7p per unit to over 13p per unit: an increase of 17% each year.
“When Margaret Thatcher came to power in 1979 . . . much of the economy of Britain and almost all the infrastructure were in state ownership. That is to say, in the hands of the people of Britain.” (From my Blog entry, “The Scandal of British Privatisation”, 21st August 2018: if you wish to find my Blog, Google rabbiedeoir+blog).
Privatisation in Britain has seen the consumer pay vastly higher costs for energy, water, rail travel, and (for those who rent their homes) for rentals. Privatisation represents the greatest act of grand theft by the rich from the British public since the Enclosures of the 18th and 19th centuries.
I (and many others) advocate the re-nationalisation of privatised businesses in Britain, targeting the utility companies (water, electricity and gas) and rail companies first of all, then the many other examples of legalized theft from the people of Britain after that.

The progressives call that Utopia.

London’s biggest problem is it’s lack of white people and over population of savages.
Did anybody ever ask why? NWO?… EU?… UN?… Islam?

The reason they can’t afford heat is because of the massive taxes on heating fuel and electricity. Taxes that they hand over the the wind scammers. The same thing happens in in Europe. It’s really nothing short of genocide.

The price of being part of the EU and submitting to the costs imposed due to Green Meanie radical environmentalism. Enjoy that energy poverty mate. Don’t worry though, the Green Meanie industrial complex is doing just fine. Al Gore, the high priest of the Church of Man Made Global Warming, thanks you for your blind obedience and patronage.

The simple answer is to toss out the Death Cult, they cause the problem. Just think of how much money could be saved if these parasites were sent home….Who needs em.
