    If I recall correctly they have to honour the price, but when the fixed deal ends you'll find the next offer much dearer...

    Heat some fat in a pan, when it's hot crack the desired number of eggs into it and allow to cook. Can be flipped if that's your preference.

    When done, remove from heat and consume in desired manner.

    Happy to be of help. :)

    Why the 'free market' bit, it's the c-word that's the key part.

    The other c-word (ends in ommunism) often nationalises energy and provides either a quota or everything free of charge to the citizens. What a horrible concept! :rolleyes:

    Obviously, I'm not going to post the other c-word that came to mind, when thinking about capitalism. ;)

    But if they go bust the company that takes over the supply probably does not need to keep to the same terms.

    Indeed. Ofgem state that it is likely to be dearer than the originally contracted rate but one is free to select a new supplier/tariff. Just good luck finding one now that isn't ridiculously expensive. :(

    I read that one of the energy price comparison websites has stopped its service for the time being due to the crisis.

    All this so makes me wish for a return to nationalised British Gas, The Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) and Regional Electricity Boards.

    That works well with super fresh eggs. Most shop bought eggs spread too much in the pan if the pan is level. If you tilt the pan on an electric stove then you lose heat.

    Use a small pan.

    Don't buy the cheapest eggs on the shelf.
    Depends on the electric hob, an induction hob allows quite a lot of movement before the heating shuts down.

    Very slow connection today. Is it AP or FB? Who knows?

    Enforced diet at the Co-op. I spent all of £10.46 and most of that was bathroom stuff. :(

    That could be a record low spend for a co-op shop!
