The article discusses the issue of poverty in Great Britain and the plan of Ofgem to dissolve its corporate technical directorate. As the price of life's essentials continues to rise, those on fixed and low incomes are going to find it harder to balance their budgets. While the government's main method of curbing carbon remains fiscal mechanisms, the prices of energy, water, food and transport will rise inexorably. The news that Ofgem is dissolving its corporate technical directorate has raised some eyebrows inside and outside the organisation.
