Record cold in Britain triggers government payouts for heating subsidies

______________________________



.
6 Jan 09 - Cold weather payouts for pensioners and the vulnerable reached record levels today after Britain’s deep freeze plunged temperatures as low as minus 11C. Forecasters warned that tonight will be even colder. These are the first payouts since the home heating subsidy was introduced 10 years ago.  The icy conditions also stranded thousands of motorists.

          “Note the comments at the end of the article,” says reader Becky Kahn.
          “People seem to be more concerned with the distribution of government
           payouts than whether global warming is a hoax.”
