    Not sure what French stuff you think we will do? Refuse to pay for a utility that has already been withdrawn?

    Is the latter what most people have?

    It had nothing to do with a civil war.

    The bit of French that l refer to is their way of recognising they are being screwed over & do something about it, something we need to have the balls to do instead of rolling over & being crapped on, or is that the British way of being ruled, accept what we are told.

    Protest the way they protested over the poll tax years ago. Don't tell me that won't happen, it happened years ago & it needs to happen again.

    If you want to be defeatest about it then crawl away & take it on the chin without moaning about anything because you ain't entitled to moan about anything if you do not get involved.

    Not paying the poll tax did not result in loss of services. Not paying a utility bill results in loss of power. They are nothing alike.

    People protested about the poll tax in order to have it changed, it was changed. If you don't protest about something you believe in you deserve all you get.

    Sit back & tell yourself nothing can be changed, you may believe that, many don't.

    Don’t be so naive.
    The poll tax was changed when the Tories realised it would cost them an election.

    Carry on thinking that then.

    Yes I do.
    But they’ll be even more desperate as they freeze with no heating.

    Don't be so naive, one way or another it won't be allowed to happen. The first death that can be attributed to lack of fuel during this crisis will bring trouble to this government.

    Ok big man tell us what you think a successful protest would result in.

    You have your opinions, I am not going to get into an argument with you here as it will be pointless.

    Don't call me big man either, have some manners or are you just confrontational ?

    You are the big man advocating civil disobedience.
    I do not respect that view at all.
    You advocate action, yet you now back away from telling us what you hope your action will result in.
    Just unthought out hot air as far as I’m concerned.

    I am not advocating civil disobedience at all, protest is a right to anyone. You quote things as you see them in responses & then try to tell us there are no alternatives, there is always alternatives. Any actions I might take will be for change, the same as it always has been for me, at the moment options are out there yet they need to be considered further.

    This is my last thought on matters, do as you see fit, I will do the same.

    Taxes are something the government controls completely, though. Energy prices are not, short of instituting subsidies (which they are, if only £400).
