This is the biggest pensioner con trick in years.
Prime Minister David Cameron claimed that energy bills would fall because of the freedom of customers to switch suppliers at will.
Act One: In our household we were tempted to switch from EON to First Utility a few months ago.
Act Two: The same comparison sight who contacted us to facilitate the switch from EON to First Utility called us today and suggested we move to a different suppler. How often will this go on, and who will profit? The comparison sites?
The sales promotion agencies?
And who will be better off?
You remind me of a second hand car salesman, David Cameron.
I’m reminded of a tale told me by a colleague some years ago.
It was about a man who sold a good looking watch to a customer.
That customer sold the same watch to someone else, who complained because the watch didn’t work, so they went to the original salesman and demanded an explanation.
The watch was opened up and there was nothing but an insect there, long dead, who may have given a tick-tock when he was alive, but no longer.
Appealing to the original salesman for an explanation he was told
“You misunderstand. The watch was not to tell the time, it was for buying and selling”
Who is profiting from this con?
