Makes me so angry. While we are not on a meter, we cannot have a direct debit since I pay this particular bill(my husband pays others) and I'm self-employed so I never know how much I will have at the end of the month in my account (sometimes my husband pays this one as well). Because of this, we pay over the odds too for our utilities. It's not fair.
Its never made sense. You get charged more for paying them up-front, vs everyone else who pays less for owing them money?
Surely if you're going to charge people different based on pre-payment vs bills, it should be the other way around to reward people who you are making interest off?
Power For The People is coordinated from Glasgow by Ellie Harrison, with the help of a small network of volunteers around the UK.
The campaign operates as a ‘non-charitable campaigning body’ and so is free to carry out political activity and act as a pressure group.
