Letter: Your view - Losers in this lofty scheme; Comment OF THE DAY.

Byline: John Cunningham

IT is all very well the Government offering people financial help to install devices such as insulation in order to combat the current fuel price, but I stay in a middle flat.

As such, I have no say in whether the person in the top flat puts in roof insulation or not. I also do not have any say on whether those living aroundme put in central heating or not - even though all these scenarios would increase the heat in my flat.

Then there is the time it would take for insulation to be put in. Given my local council's record, we would be lucky if it was done by 2018.

What we all need is cold, hard cash so we can pay our bills now.

This Government is out of touch with the realities of life and I am afraid Gordon Brown's latest heating scheme is only making a big rod to be used on his back at a later date.
