ESB hikes

• With the difficulties being experienced by thousands in this country paying their energy bills, it has broken my heart to read that the ESB has announced profits of almost €250m.

It is well-known that ESB staff are perhaps some of the very best-paid in the country and this is something that I never really had issue with.

But, with the company being allowed to raise its prices by so much over the past two years and so many people not being able to afford their energy costs, I feel very strongly that it is time to call halt or have them reduce their charges -- even if only until we get out of this financial mess.
