    Not remotely worth the hassle. Just another piece of government-inspired propaganda to try to fool people into thinking Cameron's doing something useful for once.

    More useful would be forcing the energy companies to pay out the £50+ per customer handed to them on a plate by the government when they cut green levies last year. The deal was that they would pass it back to customers, but most of them are refusing to do it for all their customers.

    What a useless naive government we have that they trusted the energy companies to play fair.
