“I am extremely concerned about the situation many people will face in the next 12 months,” he explained.
“And one of the problems we’ve had is that a lot of the tools we have for the bottom earners, they’re predicated on the idea that you have your income and your expenses.
“The way this works is to reduce people’s spending below their income. We’ve gotten to the point where, for many people, that simply can’t happen no matter what we do. and that’s why I’m calling for political intervention.”
He tried to help people by keeping things around the rising energy price cap as simple as possible.
“The cheapest fix currently on the market is £2880, actually higher than the October price cap predictions (currently £2490+), so it’s not worth getting a fix today. It’s just not worth it.” he said on Good Morning Britain today.
“Pay attention to the price cap. However, what you need to pay attention to is that your company – because there is no open market here, comparison sites are gone in a moment – will never offer grant you a much cheaper repair deal.”
