When did we go from a handful of suppliers to 30 though?

The fact that the people working in private companies don't want a state supplier is hardly surprising ffs.

What, suppliers going bust? I've literally put the numbers in my post.

This wasn't people who worked for suppliers, so wouldn't have been a competitor.

His point is that there were fewer suppliers going bust as there were fewer suppliers in the market.  For example if you go back to 2010 there were the big six and around 10 other suppliers.  The explosion in licences is what has led to the implosion of suppliers.

Ah right, fair enough. I don't know the stats for % of new entrants going bust over the past 10 years.

But I think there's still a decent argument that a packed market with companies entering and imploding fairly regularly makes it more unattractive.

I don't disagree with the sentiment. 

The reality is that compared to some of the projects that the SG have pumped money into, an energy supply company would have far more impact on the country and could even be directed toward those that are in fuel poverty specifically.

This government is better at producing glossy brochures and leaflets than actually doing stuff. I wonder when those new ferries will finally be in use?

Aren't you the moron that thought CalMac should provide ferry services to uninhabited islands?
