Looks like we, here in good old Britain, may have little choice. We currently have the least spare capacity ever. So in the event of a station (power, that is) going off-line there may not be enough power to go around. That may not affect the head of British Gas and his third heated swimming pool but anyone relying on electric to heat or cook could well be in for a cold sandwich. In a cold dining room.
Of course, EeeOre have just been exposed (allegedly) using an interesting accounting practice that, whilst not illegal in any way, shape or form, involves lending money between their businesses at differing interest rates to lessen their tax burden.
All well and good, that's the nature of business to maximise returns for your shareholders. However, in light of their (the “big” 6 energy suppliers) recent bizarre performances in front of the committee of MPs investigating their egregious, and unusually simultaneous and similar, price rises with their claim of making 5% returns may require a dose of something.
In my case, a large cider.
I am looking forward to the forthcoming bills with pleasure. I have just opened a shop and in the interests of enabling customers (hah!) to actually see what I have to offer I thought I would have some lights. Oh, and a small heater. Looks like I shall have the first book shop operating by daylight only whereby customers are required to don Eskimo outfits to enter!
Hey, ho. So without further ado, my selection of books this time cover industry, power, power, power, politics and er, power. Of course, buying one of these means I can keep myself toasty!
Owned and run by David Gower-Spence, this site also lists the books many other independent second hand book sellers from across the world. All of us, I am a dealer first and foremost with a small stock of around 40,000 secondhand books, are committed to providing the level of service that you would expect of professionals in the out of print and antiquarian book world.
The site offers secure ordering, of course, and you deal directly with the book seller to complete the transaction. Your questions regarding any book for sale can be directed to the dealer if you prefer. That contact is welcomed and can be made through the site. With a little fewer than half a million books here, you are not going to find every title listed of course.
That said, if it's here then you can rest assured of being in the good hands of our little band of brothers! Comments on the site, dealers and most things can be directed to me (using the contact us page) but please, don't mention politics, recession, bonuses or, indeed, quantitive easing!
I, personally, also keep a small selection of stock at the Post
Office in Peasedown St. John and you can get an idea of
what's in stock at any time by clicking
As well as thousands of second hand and out of print books,
I offer a range of bibliographies, book valuations(currently suspended due to other pressures), you
can sell your books through the site if you're a dealer and a free
book search service. You will also find a selection of links to other book related web sites.
