    However, hasn't Ofgem proposed FORCING energy companies to provide sensitive details about their customers to competitors if they haven't switched in a few years? Obviously not the same thing, but trying to treat part of this latest wrongdoing as being concerned with sharing customer data is clearly horse manure.

    I doubt they are allowed to provide this data to anyone due to data protection, privacy laws, etc. I love to know how E and EE got around these, or maybe they didn't!
    I am not a financial adviser and neither do I play one on television. I might occasionally give bad advice but at least it's free.

    Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them.
