Thanks ton the best endeavours of the Axis of self-entitled evil ConDem Alliance there are lots and lots of low paid and poor people in the UK who would welcome a free or very very cheap television of any kind.   

As mentioned upthread, the BHF shops seem to sell old televisions.

Until they find that their energy bills have increased further beyond their means.  A crt telly uses c.4x the energy of an lcd although it does produce some heat as a bonus.

Unlikely to make that much difference - 10 or 15 quid a year extra in electricity (maybe £30 for an outlier) is probably a lot easier to find than two or three hundred for a more efficient telly.

Well obviously they wouldn't be out buying a more efficient telly when the answer is to be spending their time trying to better their lot by working harder or simply looking for work.  Don't you read the DM?
Sic transit and all that..

Just phoned the Bootle branch & they were OK with the 14" colour CRT's but unsure about the 12" B&W ! 

Perhaps branches in London & the affluent South have customers with higher expectations.....
