Only £57😱  standing charge will be over £30 a month leaving only £27 for gas and electricity?  Are you sure you donít mean £57 per week?
.

No definitely £57 per month 👍

Well.... The reality is that you are paying more than £57 a month because they are chipping away at your credit balance as well.

I really don't mind being in credit, they've already offered me a refund which I declined+ I have the opportunity to "skip" payments if required everyone has their own preferences with finances,. if I needed it I'd simply request a refund.

That's exactly why I put the £1500 in there to pay my bills , the monthly payments are based on our estimated usage & of course  our remaining credit balance, simples 👍

Horses for courses.

Personally, I think the power companies are scumbags and they get what I owe them and nothing more.  :-X 

The cash is better off in my account earning a pittance in interest!  ;D

I don't mind paying for something I use regardless of price, the one that gets "my goat " is vehicle tax & all this emissions boll ocks, we all know that it's utter shite and the cash isn't going where its supposed to, we must have the worst roads in Europe,  all motorists are being fu**ed up the arse in the UK good & proper. We've recently come home from the Carribbean islands I know that there are bad parts but overall the roads are fantastic nearly every vehicle you see is a large SUV & the sun is shining  & the crime rates are virtually zero, signs stating that bad behaviour will result in the  offender being jailed are clearly  visible, try using " mental health issues" boll ocks over there.

 Re the fuel costs/direct debit,had I agreed to the ridiculous figure of £300 per month from the 1st of July 2023 I would have so far paid £3000 to them when in fact I have to date paid them £2070 & still have almost £600 credit .

We too could sell all our infrastructure to the Chinese...  ::)

Plenty of criminality everywhere, but some places are better at protecting the tourist areas from too much of it.

Just shows what utter nonsense can be put out, I'd sooner spend a fortnight at any of the islands we visited, than a weekend in any English coastal town , the UK has become a total disgrace. We visited Jamaica in 1979 & it was pretty bad then it is the only place I wouldn't go to now. We felt absolutely safe on every island we visited & were not hassled on any of the beaches.

Not surprised to see any of those islands on the list the only surprise is that Haiti and Dominican Republic aren't in the top ten.

The tourist industry brings in alot of money, so the various hotels etc go to alot of trouble to keep their properties safe.

Not sure it is utter nonsense.  Most Caribbean islands have extremely high crime rates, often around theft and mild assault and muggings. Very often you are advised not to leave the hotel unaccompanied, and only use official tours.

The root cause is often down to poverty rather than greed.  Which is why many of those islands have beaches that are secured from the locals, and discrete but heavy armed security around the hotels.  No matter what excursions you book, you will never get to see the "real" island.  Same goes for other places, like the Red Sea resorts.

I'm sure the lefties will claim similar for our run down towns in the UK, but we know that's utter 'dangle berries'.  We have a welfare state that, rightly or wrongly, keeps our lame and lazy in fags and lotto tickets.

I can only reiterate we walked around all the islands we visited & felt totally safe it was a real pleasure to receive good service & politeness from every business we strolled around, the areas we visited were absolutely spotless any rubbish was put into the many bins which were available, they really put the UK to shame, however Jamaica is a completely other story, we have a Jamaican shop owner in Spalding who went to visit his Grandparents for the first time in 2017 he felt unsafe & will never return, we went there in 1999 and were advised not to wander off the complex.We didn't see any security on any of the beaches again they were all spotlessly clean at one point I picked two empty beer bottles which I had drunk to return to the bar 100 yards away but these were taken from me as I was " on vacation" and it was Elvin's job to do that not mine, he put me in my place..😄
