    Energy Supplier Gone Bust

    Had an email from Scottish Power the other day which informed me that my current energy supplier has gone bust and that Ofgem have given my account to them. I now have to wait 4-5 weeks until I get a welcome pack from Scottish Power before I can change suppliers. What a pain.
