Yes some MHKs regurgitate data from their departments without understanding it

It's the weirdness of our system. Laymen and laywomen get put into positions of chairman and then are expected to become experts overnight. It's a bit of a comedy that they actually try to convince us that they are credible.

Less AI and more alien lifeforms. 'Cos the figures they dream up certainly aren't of this world...

At least they confirm now that they don’t owe the MUA any money

This highlights the stupidity of the whole arrangement. Why do we even need MG as intermediary. We sell them gas that they sell to us. The gas network they use is ours leased to them. They should have just let these fuckers go bust back at the start of the year.

Gas Bill arrived today.  Same time last year, charge for hot water and cooker was £28 + £10 standing charge - £38 total.  This year - £68 total.  Nearly 100% increase and that's with me trying not to use so much hot water. Balls to this.

Get a small immersion heater?

Very similar here a couple of weeks back. Winter is not going to be amusing. Might be cheaper to go live somewhere off-Island even, by the time everything is added up?

Interestingly, only two direct payments were recorded on the bill. They missed off June and July's payment.  I spent £10 of credit trying to talk to the billing department before giving up.  I'll drop them an email instead. 

Does anyone else have experience of missed payments from the bills?

Na.  Been there done that.  These days I get traumatised just going to Doolish. Just had two tons of wood delivered this morning to add to my already foraged stores.  The old toilet makes a good wood store.  It's now nearly full and has cost me £100. Up yours Manx Gas. x

Your wood supplier??

Judging by the time it took you to (fail to) get through to the billing department, loads of people.  When I've had billing problems in the past (usually because the reminder letter before the bill) it's usually been fairly simple to get through and the staff have been helpful.

Looking at my bill they've clearly got (yet another) new accounts system with all the usual teething and transition problems.  So they may have lost loads of payments at least temporarily and it will take ages to get things sorted (this is why I avoid direct debit).

Yep. Both payments for June and July were missing from the bill that arrived this week, but both definitely left my bank account.

Weirdly, although neither appears on the bill, the value of one of them - presumably the June one - HAS been credited. The July one is completely AWOL though, despite being taken three weeks before the date on the bill.

Shoddy bunch of chancers - I blame that Jo Cox personally!

MG make 5% profit regardless of price.  This is based on EBITDA, which is easily manipulated.  

Gas prices have been volatile, but one thing's for sure Manx gas are making at least 5% profit guaranteed by government 

And Ancala's Management Fee levied against MG will be paid to USA regardless.
