- Vis disastrous... They weren't good that's for sure. Operating profit 2013: £2,695m 2012: £2,743m (2%) PBT 2013: £1.6bn 2012:£2.4bn Taxation charge 2013:£1,022m 2012:£1,112m (8%) UBS sell was rather prescient. Their target 280p. Political pressures wont help going forward. At least they weren't as bad as BAe!

- They are 2% of gas customers moved to cheaper suppliers However the £50 per household profit from gas is not excessive Equates to 96p per house per week Red Ed has made a compleat prat of himself with his pontificating regards profits Great dividend earner so I will take the recent drops as historic with future rises in the sp imminent

- philanderer Thanks for bringing the article to our attention. Not good. Glad I haven't bought any shares yet and it is making me have doubts about this part of the sector; wait and see what the results are like.

- Fangorn2 I will buy Centrica, at the right price, it is approaching good lows and political influence could be a little overdone. It is potentially a good income stock and it is just a case of gauging when all the bad news has been discounted and corresponding share action exhausted. I am sure you would agree as a LTBH investor.

- I note Ed Davey's letter did not mention how much money EDF is making out of the UK energy market. The Government is totally reliant on EDF to get the new nuclear power station program up and running. There is no linkage whatsoever between these two statements.

- You could well be correct EI. Bills could be alot lower without this green dross. At the bare miminum it shouldn't be funded via electricity & gas bills as its far too regressive. Plenty of ways it can be funded through general taxation if needed, not that I think it should be.

- Global warming is a complex system which is not fully understood, but if humans continue to pollute the atmosphere they maybe unwanted side effects. The addiction to growth at any cost will have unwanted side effects. Now, where can I get some more sand bags ?

- To an extent yes, however if results and the outlook were significantly weaker than expected the SP would fall imv, depending on the price at results day. Scrapping any dividend increase for 2 years may be an idea, they could use that extra money to cut prices and it would be politically expedient. It may help counter some of the argument on "excessive" margins.

- They'll be worth anyone decides to pay, when you are forced to break up the parts are worth less than the sum, off course there are attractive assets, but energy is a poisoned chalice, becoming too regulated!

- I use BG as they answer the telephone and answer emails. Tell Lib Dum Davey to try that with some of the other companies. If I want a car, I want to chose one that I want, not what some dumb lib dem wants me to have.

- News just full of negative stories around the energy industry. Today it is about how people who dont pay by direct debit get screwed so what is the reckoning that they will be forced to cut those charges.

- Miata. Economics is too important to be left to the politicians. On the stock gyrations, this is routine intimidation/accumulation time for the big boys. All in a day's work. PS - Edit . Meant to say 'Government is too important to be left to the politicians'.
