Here in the UK, we are reminded every other week on TV to switch our energy suppliers often to make sure we get the best deal. But ... it's a PITA.

Then I saw Dragons Den, and a bunch that promise to do all the work for you, and thought "OK, lets see..." and they did very well - they find a better deal, they do the switch for you, I'm happy and several hundred pounds a year better off.

Until today when I get an email from them:
Quote:

Hi Paul,

You may have heard recently that Spark Energy has gone out of business.

no, what? You jest ... a quick search and Spark Energy collapse leaves 290,000 without supplier | Business | The Guardian[^]

Oh fer Elephant's sake ... I only just switched to those buggers! Anyone want to pay me to use their competitors services? I may be a kiss of death here....
