CYNICAL con trick or not?

Just paid British Gas bill for March – £30 more than last year. Look back at previous bills find that since June 2007 they have all been estimated. Conclusion – assume that British Gas knew there would be a whopping price rise and were content to estimate low meter readings and then clobber us with the correct ones when they could get the most profit. As the French say C’est la vie.
