I consider £80 a month a LOT to spend on heating. yet you consider £137 low.
When I lived an a cold draughty flat, I did things to mitigate the issues, such as fitting makeshift double glazing (thick cling film and sticky tape) and draught excluders on windows and doors, with the long material draught excluders at the bottom of the doors - not perfect, but every little helps.
I actually consider £137 a month a lot, and I was highlighting our usage as a comparator, not a baseline, so your interpretation of my comment was incorrect.
I actually agree with you re people not being able to afford heating being wrong, but my post was in reply to someone spending £225 per month, not those people.
