You can get it cheap places like Mountain Warehouse and I genuinely think it's something that might be worth recommending or gifting to people who are going to struggle.

        For cheap thermals - Lidl Crivit are good.
        The best (IMHO) are Merino wool

        If you've got a Decathlon near you, they are worth checking out: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/browse/c...rs/_/N-1r62f6w

          I am in a solid-brick detached house in band G/H (forget) FYI so it's not like I'm unaffected by this. I doubt many here have bigger energy bills than I do. But I still think government efforts should be on those who are hardest hit.
          Sheesh. Do we need sarcasm markup?

            Yup....

            But that election is looming and this could last for quite a while.

            When the BoE acts too late and then responds aggressively, there is rarely a "soft landing".

              Message from the BoE today: brace for the biggest annual fall in living standards since comparable records began 30 years ago. Yikes.

                Ah, the Trump defense. Say something moronic then claim it was 'a joke'. Maybe you should work harder on your prose.

                Oh yeah Lidl are a great shout, though the good stuff goes in minutes. We have queued for opening time when they get kids waterproofs in 2-3 times a year.

                Merino is pricey though and hand-wash? I might suggest our church starts an "underwear drive" because we live in a deprived area. I hadn't considered it but the wife pointed out if you're on benefits, a council tax rebate is (we think) meaningless because you don't pay it anyway.

                    Yep, Boris will continue being a convenient idiot for the Tories for a while yet.

                      Some of the thermals are advertised as "Motorbike thermals" - and they normally get left for a few days. The difference between then and "normal" thermals is that they have 3/4 length legs that stop where a motorbike boot would start, and they allegedly have more flexible pieces.

                      Pricey and hand wash, yes. There are lots of alternates in between.

                      Practical Christianity gets a big thumbs up from me.
