UK cold snap kills 2,500 in a week

The bodies of George Bates, 89, and his wife Gertrude, 86, were found huddled in the living room of the home they had shared for 64 years.

British Gas, which was owed £140.62 by the couple, said the Data Protection Act had prevented them from passing information to social services.

What is going on here? Come on socialists, take care of your sheep!

I can't tell if British Gas is privately owned or not, or if it's a state-sanctioned monopoly. You don't see things like this happening in the U.S., do you? I suppose it does on occasion. The article above says 50,000 people are expected to die this winter due to the cold.
