There has been a lot on the news this morning about the energy market as there has been a report by Offgem. The speaker for the companies said, when asked why they don't just put people on the best tariff, that we would then not have a competitive market.
So, the only way a competitive market will work is to take more money off some consumers than they would otherwise pay. Who will those people be? Most likely those who are least able to help themselves and therefore often those, the elderly and infirm, who need the cheapest fuel they can have.
Surely it is time we stopped thinking a competitive market for everything is always the best and went back to the mixed economy?
