EDF Energy: Our incoming post targeted too? (WITH UPDATE - DAY 12 7/7/2017)

Re: Internet cuts since 26 May 2017

From my earlier blog post's Update 7 July (8.14am):

"And it's not just Facebook blocks, blocks on public access to our Church and State website and the daily targeting to fluctuating degrees of category pages throughout the site that Declan and I are dealing with these days. We have also been dealing with Internet cuts since 26 May. See my blog post of 21 June, Internet cuts: We pay £65 per month for BT Infinity but feel we are in a race against time to stay online (WITH UPDATE 7/7/2017 RE: 50th Internet cut since 26 May 2017)."

We had to suspend work on our Church and State website on 15 June after 4 internet cuts in one night. 4 internet cuts on 25 June; a record-breaking 6 cuts in one day yesterday; none since midnight today (as of 7 July at 8.14am).

The War on Free Expression

We have been waiting for our EDF electricity bill through the post since EDF produced the bill on Monday of last week. This morning Declan will report the matter to EDF's Executive Liaison Team under complaint reference number 282884655; see my blog post of 24 June, EDF Energy: Complaint to the CEO of EDF Energy about electricity smart meter readings (WITH UPDATE 26/6/2017). All we know is that we have not changed the instruction on our EDF MyAccount service to receive bills through the post. Perhaps our incoming post has been targeted too; see my blog post of 19 May, Royal Mail: Complaint to the CEO of Royal Mail about 'door-stepping' incidents following the loss of our employment contracts to the United States (WITH UPDATE 23/5/2017).

DAY 12 UPDATE 7 July (8.22am): We received our latest EDF bill yesterday evening by recorded post. However, this morning we found two letters addressed to Declan on the floor in the upstairs communal hall (all tenants have their own letter box). This incidence of 'door stepping' was commonplace a couple of months ago; see my newer blog post this morning, Complaint to the CEO of Royal Mail: Has Royal Mail declared open warfare on our incoming mail? And this question is raised on top of Internet cuts that are going out of control (WITH UPDATE 7/7/2017). We had hoped this email from Royal Mail CEO Moya Greene last May meant we would receive all future mail through our letter box:

Dear Mr Heavey

Thank you for your e-mail. I am sorry to hear that you have had problems with the handling of your enquiry and have asked my senior team to look into this for you straightaway.

Yours sincerely

Moya Greene
Chief Executive Officer
