Girls Aloud bring about major change in energy supplier's policy. Or something
Who says Bitterwallet doesn’t get things done? It’s less than a week since we ran a story highlighting the shocking fact that energy suppliers think nothing of overcharging us via monthly direct debit so that they can build up vast sums of our cash in their bank accounts and greedily feast on the interest like a hungry baby marmoset would guzzle away at its mother’s dugs.
It was a spellbinding story, which was in many ways enhanced by the way we managed to intertwine it with some shit-hot new pics of Girls Aloud dressed up to the noughts in some PVC undergear. Information, entertainment and mild erotica – all the ingredients for the perfect blog post.
Now, just a few days later, Scottish Power have announced that they’ll be the first energy supplier to pay interest to those customers who rack up large credit balances with them through paying regular, fixed direct debits.
With the word ‘rack’ hanging in the air, we’ll point those of you who want to know more to this Guardian article which has some of the facts and figures you’ll be interested in. The rest of us can just hang around here and leer at the pic of Girls Aloud, without whose help we doubt this major consumer breakthrough would almost certainly never have happened.
