    Electric for last 12 months 898 euros

    Heating Oil for last 12 months  580 euros.

    Coal                                     480 euros

    I've finally found something that is better value than the UK unless you lot are complete energy wasters!

    Dermot do they not use peat anymore ?, I watched a programe on it a few years ago,
    I have a wood burning stove but it seems like i have to spend all day on the blady thing, so i dont bother with it anymore, probably me doing it wrong, At the garage they use oil burners for heating,
    old engine oil is stored up over the summer, also all the trade take there old engine oil in,
    I once put 12 gallon containers in a customers car when going for an mot (Carefully on cardboard)
    I forgot about it and Wilf who's car it was rang and said "Reg have you lost anything" As soon as he said it i thought Blox, Er oh mmm, sorry wilf i needed to drop it off at the testing station  
    He took it the next day, Good job he knows me

    The stupidity of 'Red-Edds' latest gaff is that the energy companies in the U.K. will have a field day hiking prices from now until the next election in case by some miracle Edd actually does get to be prime minister in 2015 and freezes their prices. My leccy bills in Tenerife are half the price of my leccy bills in rip-off England.

    Last quarterly bills, electric £227. Water £72. Most of that electric is just wasted by teenagers who leave everything on........Heating oil is £2,500 per year but difficult to know how much of that is used for other purposes   but at a guess I would say over £1k even though we only heat the right hand wing of the house. 
    Annual use of community water and leccy in Tenerife is probably less than €25 but of course I only spend about one sixth of my time there. 
    Acres of Solar Panels and Windfarms on Tenerife probably help over a long period too, just placed on virtual wasteland unlike in UK where they use up arable land or placed out at sea where the maintenance costs are obviously much higher. 
    Fracking is the fecking answer here I believe, just got to sort out the NIMBYS and tree huggers.

    We are ripped off in The UK by every government Lab or Con. Petrol etc has a huge amount of tax on it then we pay v.a.t. on the lot so we pay tax on tax. All our hard earned then goes to pay for them that find it hard to get off their backsides or overseas aid. What funding did we get from abroad when we suffered severe flooding a couple of years ago. Easy answer. Naff all!!

    Daughter has a square black fire thing in their living room, burns anything, they mainly burn peat which they cut themselves so it's free, and wood which they collect from the shore line, so to run it, it costs them nothing, just a bit of work, it heats their central heating system for the whole house and hot water...

    Hey he sounds like one of us Reg, come to think of it he sounds like most of the people I meet. I just hope in my lifetime I get to vote in a Government that thinks along the same lines. Hard work deserves reward, anything else is bullshit. And as for that foreign aid....... 
    Just been shopping in supermarket today, place was full of white foreigners. Ludicrous.
    Did have a funny moment though, as I was walking in a fat bird was coming out munching on a cream cake......  Couldnt even wait to waddle to her car let alone get home.
