UKIP Dorchester Office Left In Darkness


Published at 8:44am 11th December 2014.

Politicians may be used to lengthy debates but UKIP West Dorset aren't getting anywhere in their discussions with npower.

The party took over a vacant shop in Dorchester in November.

npower promised to reconnect their elecrity supply on the 9th December, but have so far failed to do so.

They've now pushed that date back to 22nd December.

UKIP say that means their plans to open the shop will have to be put on hold until after Christmas and they will also lose around a month and a half on their seven month lease.

UKIP Campaign Director for the West Dorset Graham Brant said: "It is completely unacceptable. We are in a Catch 22 situation and it is all down to nPower.

Mr Brant said they had onsidered taking their complaints to Ofcom but learnt that the regulator could only intervene after an 8-week dispute procedure with the energy supplier.
