News, Martin Lewis warns hard-up people could STRIKE over energy bills as cost of living crisis worsens: detailed suggestions and opinions about Martin Lewis warns hard-up people could STRIKE over energy bills as cost of living crisis worsens.

MARTIN Lewis has warned of potential “consumer strikes” over soaring energy bills.

Households across the UK have been left with rising food, fuel and energy prices as inflation hits 9.4%.

It’s meant people’s money not going as far, as staples such as bread, eggs and petrol all increase in cost and the cost of living crisis deepens.

Asked on ITV’s flagship political show Peston last night whether he feared civil unrest with energy bills predicted to go so high, Mr Lewis said: “The big movement that I am seeing is an increase of growth in people calling for a non-payment of energy bills, mass non-payment.

“Effectively a consumer strike on energy bills and getting rid of the legitimacy of paying that.

“It’s small at the moment there’s a Twitter handle with about 5k followers.”

Mr Lewis described the current sentiment as “close to a Poll Tax” situation, with the energy bill price cap set to rise in October.
