    I think with a quick scout around the tariffs of all the major suppliers you'll find bg around the cheapest and none of the foreign johnnies are investing a damn thing to secure a GB sourced energy supply.

    Sometimes I wonder if BG intentionally aim to engage less clever people because they think that with their repair prompting lap-top programs thats all they need and having less real diagnostic skills will make it more difficult for them to become self employed.

    Why are you calling me a 'white van man'?? I'm the CEO of a large Bona Fide company, that employs a number of RGIs on our books, many of whom are far better qualified in all types of work, than a BG CPS parts changer.

    We have a very large customer base & are taking customers from BG on a daily basis as a result of their poor service & poorly trained staff.

    Your so right there delta some of the basics that is asked in the CC is embarrassing to the industry.

    Speaking as someone that has employed former BG staff - but only for a very short time!! I can assure you, there's nothing these chaps could teach anyone in the industry.
