The complicated choice facing Democratic presidential primary voters, desperate to pick the right candidate to beat President Donald Trump in 2020, was encapsulated this past weekend. Elizabeth Warren, who on Saturday delivered populist fire in her formal announcement speech, represented the view that fierce ideological conviction can carry the day in the general election. The next day, Amy Klobuchar touted her Midwestern roots as she personified the belief that a candidate from the middle—both politically and geographically—would be the most electable nominee.

This isn’t a glitch in the system, it’s a profit model that is rife among the energy behemoths. “These business models are there to screw the customer,” says Matthew Clemow, co-founder of challenger brand Igloo Energy. “It’s a shame that it’s one of the only ways that they’ve worked out how to make money.” With Ofgem figures showing that 60 per cent of Brits are on SVR tariffs even if they’re more expensive, companies are getting rich purely from people’s inertia. And although there are 70 or so suppliers in the energy market, Clemow argues that some of the challengers aren’t offering … [Read more...] about As competition heats up, meet the energy company taking on the Big Six by cutting consumption
