  1. Today I received my British Gas Bill (Estimated as always) which said they were doubling my payments from £130 to £260 per month - not cheap I know. I didn't have to worry about it as they were going to adjust my direct debit. - how kind. I phone and ask to speak to the person that thought this one up and and was told there wasn't a person as it was all fully automated - I did point out that even automated systems had to be programmed by people but this seemed to be beyond her scope of understanding. I was assured that it wasn't personal and that more than likely this will have happened to all direct debit users with estimated bills - most reassuring I think not. When I gave my gas usage reading I was told my bill had actually gone up by £1. 50p per month. I asked who I could complain to was told I could only complain to British Gas and I have now apparently been assigned someone to look into it who will contact me in due course. I can not imagine the stress this is going to cause to people struggling to pay their bills up and down the land. It is just wrong - they (British Gas) can not be bothered sending out meter readers and can not even make a phone call to ask for one and yet they can double a bill without even blinking an eyelid. And I and others can not complain to outside bodies about this. I wonder just how long it will take them to contact me?
  2. What right does the UN Commission have to do this ? I get the impression the Falklanders are not happy about it either ?

  5. Hi there, We received the 2 months notice from our landlord as he wants to get the property back. We found a new flat and want to vacant this property 3 weeks before the end of the 2 month notice given by landlord.We told him we want to leave 3 weeks earlier but he tells us we have now to give him one month notice on the day our contract gets renewed as per the contract states. If we do that, we will be leaving only on the date in which the landlord wants us to leave as per his original notice. We are on a rolling contract, after receiving the notice from Landlord are we still required to give notice to him? This doesn't make sense to me? Any help is much appreciated! Nataly
