How Sainsbury’s Deliberately Kills Old People

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

Just had a note from Sainsbury’s (which, for some bizarre reason, sells us our gas and electricity) to tell us that our current tariff ends in June and that our prices will double unless we move to another tariff or take our business elsewhere.

Double! That is price gouging. It’s the worst sort of Shylocking.

The bastards are doubling the price of our gas.

That is inexcusable.

Sarwjit Sambhi, the Managing Director who wrote to tell me this jolly news, should be horse whipped in public.

You and I can do something about this deliberate and premeditated mugging.

But millions can’t.

The elderly, the frail and the poor often don’t have internet access. They still assume that energy costs are pretty well uniform. And so, largely out of trust and loyalty, they do nothing.

And Sainsbury’s (and the other gas and electricity suppliers) take advantage of them.


Every year tens of thousands of elderly folk die of the cold because they can’t afford to heat their homes properly.

Sarwjit Sambhi and Sainsbury’s know this, of course.

And yet they have a price policy which results in thousands of deaths.

Difficult to see why that isn’t murder, ain’t it?

Sainsbury’s will be responsible for many more deaths than the late and very unlamented Ian Brady.
