I am 61, single, a carer on benefits, living in my own home.

I am more than capable of making my own decisions.

I was brought up to believe that if you do not have the money for something you do without.

There is an on/off switch on the boiler and I do not put heating on.

I do not want conservatives to put £200 loan on my energy bill - surely that is my right?

I have always shopped around for the best prices and pay my bills weekly so as never to be in debt.

Are we a democratic country?

"Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend." 

It means do not lend or borrow money from a friend, because if you do so, you will lose both your friend and your money.
