    Now that is dangerous ! However, to the matter in hand !
    People who whine and winge about a hook up costing £3 ! Look at the expertise and expense of constructing power stations and distribution of the leccy through pylons etc.
    I think that's a pretty good deal !
    And, what's the price of a pint or a glass of wine in a pub ? Certainly more than £3 !!!! Yet we don't get many posts about that, more to the point, we get loads of piccies of funsters downing their tipple and long may they do so !:cheers::cheers::cheers:

    That's a dangerously sensible post, you'll be banned.

    They also whine and winge about fuel at £1.15 lt , which has to be discovered, recovered and refined .. at huge cost.. often in hostile environments and cost to human life.. ..compared with beer , about £6 per litre for what is little more than coloured water.

    same goes for natural gas.. yet we have NIMBYs stopping it's recovery in Lancashire.. I hope the same NIMBYs turn off the gas supply to their homes..

    We don't whine about it only costing £3.
    We moan that it's only that !
    It should be more , metered to your own usage preferably. People should be charged a standard price for a pitch , and what ever else for your electric usage and other facilities on top.
    That way people like us , that don't use any , at all, get a very cheap pitch. (y)
    I also think you should be charged for showers, toilets, and washing up facilities too. I hate subsidising folk who have Leccy heaters in their awnings Mid winter and because they never use their own facilities in their vans.:imoutahere:
