Seems they are making excuses that they paid £1bn in UK taxes, and that major Pensions Companies heavily invest in them, and that during 2020 Pandemic they made a loss, and the govt didn't help out then?

The profit of the big 6 (as they are now) just seems obscene... but we have no way to hit them where it hurts, as we all need to fuel our cars, purchase food, and heat/light our homes!

They are predicting £3600 per year now to heat/light the average home... that's £300 per month, with interest rates/mortgages rising, many may find themselves in dire straits, in the next 12 months :-(

Martin Lewis says an awful lot of his twitter replies are suggesting a payment strike.
Could end up looking like that anyway if enough can't afford the bills.

They can make excuses but the principle, let alone the optics, during a cost of living crisis is abhorrent.
