Get Behind the Mirror’s ‘Fair Price For Power’ Campaign


The Mirror is running a campaign which calls upon the Government and fuel bosses to act now over rising energy bills.

With more and more people being hit where it hurts the most – in their pockets – the paper is calling on its readers to back their ‘Fair Price For Power’ campaign.  And so far the initiative has achieved a phenomenal response,with 15,000 worried energy consumers adding their weight behind the campaign since its launch.

But more still needs to be done, and the Mirror is appealing for anyone concerned about escalating energy costs to get behind their campaign, which they can do so by filling out coupons printed in the paper.

The campaign is urging suppliers to lower their bills and to scrap their confusing array of tariffs. The Mirror is also appealing to the Government to launch a Competition Commission probe, which would investigate why 99% of the UK energy market continues to be controlled by the same “Big Six”.

As more households continue to struggle to pay for their energy bills, energy campaigners believe ministers need to help out the hard-up and elderly vulnerable members of society, by dipping into the estimated £1.6 billion they are set to collect in VAT this year alone from soaring energy bills.

“We support the Mirror’s campaign for a fair price for power. Rising energy prices are obviously a major concern for people across the country with many struggling to afford their bills,” said Audrey Gallacher from Consumer Focus.

As the Mirror continues to campaign for a fairer price for power, householders should also consider the benefits of switching energy suppliers to try and source a better deal, draught-proofing their doors and windows or installing cavity wall insulation and loft insulation.

  1. I agree with all the confusing tariffs and escalating energy prices.who knows where we will all end up. Pensioner

  2. I am absolutely disgusted with this government… Steal from the poor and give to the rich, that seems to me their manifesto. God give me strength. I would like to add my name to the growing list of people who are totally disillusioned with the way this country is run and is heading. Chaos and meltdown are two words that sorting to mind.

  3. Give pensioners back the full fuel allowance. Reduce gas prices when the companies get their reductions

  4. I am fully behind your campaign for fairer fuel prices. I am a pensioner and frightened to use my heating.

  5. I urgently reccommend that this campaign is supported and a fairer price for power is initiated by companies to stop rising energy bills

  6. IT IS TIME PEOPLE TOOK TO THE STREETS TO REMOVE THIS MUPPET GOVERNMENT WHOSE MANIFESTO IS TO GIVE MORE AND MORE TO THE RICH AND ENCOURAGE THE RICH TO SCREW THE POOR. THIS GOVERNMENT WILL NOT BE SATISFIED UNTIL WE ARE BACK IN THE 19TH CENTURY. THEY MUST BE REMOVED FROM POWER BEFORE THEY DESTROY THE COUNTRY.
