We can afford to heat our house but that doesn't mean we have the central heating blaring morning, noon and night. It comes on for under an hour in the morning and an hour or so in early evening; during the day there's no need yet. Some houses I go to are heated so everyone can laze around in shorts and t-shirts, why? We sit in jeans and a long sleeve cotton top, if we're cold of an evening then we might put the central heating on for another hour or more likely we'll put on another layer, or even a thin blanket whilst sitting on the sofa.
Heating one's home is a necessity but there's no right to heat to excess. If you're cold put on another layer.
The BBC's anti-Conservative bias blinds them to the truth but also leads them to the inconsistent position where with one breath they tell us we must save energy to save the planet from CO2 induced man made climate change but with the next that we must all have the right to live in homes heated so we can relax in shorts and t-shirts.
