Why are second home owners getting Rishi Sunak’s £400 energy bill discount TWICE?

Last Updated: June 7, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Rishi Sunak: he has found a way to make sure rich people get twice or three times as much help from his energy bill discount as people who genuinely need the money. How utterly disgusting.

Rich people who have second homes will receive Rishi Sunak’s energy bill discount twice, in a slap in the face for people who are in genuine energy poverty.

Those with three homes will receive £1,200 – of which two-thirds of the money would be better-spent on people in real need.

Obviously, nobody can live in two or three houses at the same time, so there is no reason for these people – 772,000 with two houses, 61,000 with three (including Sunak himself) should receive these huge extra amounts.

The total amount of extra money being paid out to rich people is £357,600,000. They don’t need it; they won’t use it to cover extra heating costs – and vows to donate it to charity miss the point.

There has been criticism of Rishi Sunak’s energy bill discount after it was revealed that second home owners will get it twice – double the £400 received by others.

The Treasury has confirmed that this applies to every individual house – including second homes.

Rishi Sunak has found a way to turn an offer of help to people suffering energy poverty as a result of stupid Tory political policies into a grubby handout of public money to rich private homeowners. What a dirty trick.

    Who is getting £400, I was under the impression that it was only £150(that’s all I got) so where is this figure of £400 coming from?

      £150 is from the council to help with council tax (I think).

      £400 was originally the repayable £200 loan. Now it’s a grant/payout going to every household (as I think it was described). It turns out Sunak meant every house. Bit of a difference there!

    I know as a pensioner I will receive another payment in the Autumn, but it will not add up to £400, I agree that vulnerable people should get more help(those on but if pensioners are getting £300 who is getting the £400, assuming that it is not going to vulnerable, the 8 million households on means tested benefits, pensioners and the already rich(if they can afford two houses, then in my book, they are rich)?
    I must be misreading the previous post you gave us back in May, but why have I received £150 in June? Strange and I don’t understand it.
    I don’t watch any MSM platform “news” which it invariably isn’t, or read propagandist pro establishments toilet roll tabloids, so am dependant on you to provide real news.

      Do you mean this article – https://wp.me/p4Sru1-gbc?

      It doesn’t mention the £150 help for people in the low council tax bands.
