    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.
