'Nasty attitude' Naga Munchetty blasted by BBC fans over grilling of Labour MP

“We’re going to respond with interventions that make a difference to people – so as well as what we’ve already laid out with that windfall tax, I can tell you today that part of that will be ending the practice of people who pay for their energy in advance through prepayment metres being charged more than people who pay by direct debit.

“That’s about four million households across the UK, and the intervention to stop them being charged more will be worth about £200 extra to them up to March next year.”

He added: “We recognise fundamentally the scale of the crisis, we know action is required-“

“Sorry,” Munchetty interrupted. “For prepayment and customer, you say you’ll save them up to £200 until next year, savings or next year, but BBC’s research department took a look – if you look at this, actually, a prepayment customer would say £46 on this, it barely touches the sides whether it’s £200 or £46, does it?”
