Comparison Sites are....

So I spend the best part of my weekend looking at alternative energy suppliers.  Wasn't life just easier when it was just good old British Gas.

I hate First Great Western and the fact that I have to use them.

And finally if you really must book a train journey then read this article from the Mirror and make sure that your train travel is as cheap as possible How to get cheap train tickets.
