I immediately told my son he has to cut down showers as he is always having one, and everyone to turn everything off and not leave lights on etc.
Like a red flag to a bull sending that email yesterday to a Yorkshireman

Not only have we spent the last couple of months unplugging everything the moment we stop using it, my husband is now trying to buy devices to reduce the water flow from the shower! Unfortunately for him I notice every time, and that's one thing I can't compromise one. :-) (He's forgotten what trying to wash hair is like!)

That's quite impressive! We did have fixed rates, until our supplier went bust.

All quiet I'm afraid, I keep an eye on DVC fan & there's certainly nothing on there at the minute. I'm expecting some sort of big fanfare if & when though

I wouldnít say that the article is wrong, just that it doesnít really say anything new! It states that borrowing restrictions arenít ending yet, which they havenít. It also states that being allowed to go over is at their discretion. That has been the case for months. On another forum I have heard of many cases where people have been allowed to go slightly over because they called and asked. Unfortunately, other people who called have been refused.

Itís just one of those articles that implies itís saying something to get hits. At some point the restrictions will end or people will be officially allowed more, and at that point they can claim they said it first!
