Re: Not smart enough

> more than 10% of your disposable income on energy

That definition (for UK.gov at least) seems to have changed, presumably because the 10% is too easy for the peasants to understand

I don't think it was ever 10% of disposable income - it was 10% of gross income because fuel is one of those things that we simply cannot live without, like food and water. Fuel costs are one of the things taken off your total income, and what is left is disposable.
