Illegal gas.

By 11 February 2009 48

Today I tried to disconnect my gas.  Or rather I tried to stop paying for it. We've lived in a southside rental for the last 3 years and apart from a six month stint when we moved in have not used the gas.  (There's only 1 bayonet in the loungeroom for heating and it's unflued). I've been to...
