Because of the ever-increasing price of energy, about one quarter of people in the United Kingdom have indicated that they do not intend to use their heating system this coming winter.
The price cap on energy is scheduled to increase in October, which would result in an 80% increase in monthly costs. This will result in the average annual energy bill for a household increasing from £1,971 to £3,549 ($2,300 to $4,150).
The average annual energy bill is expected to reach £6,522 by the spring of 2019, which is a figure that is high enough to put nearly half of the population at risk of falling into fuel poverty.
According to the findings of a study conducted by Savanta ComRes, 23 percent of those polled have stated that they will not use their heating system in any capacity at all.
The percentage of persons who think they will be forced to take out a loan to pay their energy bill climbs to 17% for those with children under the age of 18, compared to 11% for those without children.
As the expense of supporting "the current thing" begins to bite, there is a diminishing desire for sending more money to Ukraine. In the meantime.
In March, 48% of British citizens were in favor of imposing sanctions on Russia, even if it meant higher inflation and energy prices; but, as of right moment, only 38% of British citizens hold this view.
Sam Pointer, an insurance account manager who has three children under the age of three, was quoted in the Sunday Times as saying, "It is a struggle."
“If the government could find some way to support Ukraine to come to a peaceful solution, that would be great. But I’m not too hopeful.”
If the government does not take drastic action in the form of financial bailouts, many analysts and observers predict that there will be massive public upheaval.
When people "realize how bad this is going to get," according to the words of one senior figure in the energy industry, they may take their fury out on the streets in the form of violent demonstrations. This information was relayed to the administration.
