Never mind at least the Brexit promise of scrapping VAT on fuel has been honoured, and wasn't another lie....

Re: The energy crisis

These increases are going to change everything. It'll be goodbye to pubs, chippies, a lot of small businesses etc. Probably end up going to 3-4 day week openings for a some businesses. A lot of people just can not afford it full stop. What a complete mess it all is. And that's just for starters, if predictions are correct this is just the beginning.

Re: The energy crisis

And these are the updated forecasts for the next two 3 monthly price cap announcements from Cornwall Insight’s whose forecast for todays October price cap just announced was pretty much spot on.

Re: The energy crisis

If we didn't have a failed Johnson zombie government, we might know if we're expected to pick up the full whack. Instead, due to the bureaucratic and slow-moving process, millions of Brits will have sleepless nights until the next prime minister is in power.

Re: The energy crisis

This is the guy who his first response to Covid was to tell the public he'd gone round hospitals shaking hands with suspected patients. Hounded out or not, he's out of ideas.

The "we must do all we can to protect retail/hospitality" brigade from 2020/21 are surprisingly silent since these are the supposed lifeblood of the economy.

Re: The energy crisis

Seriously why are people running around like headless chickens?

Until whatever help is going to be introduced is announced there is NOTHING you can do about it.

This perpetual crap induced by a toxic media is becoming increasingly boring.

I suggest people concern themselves when the true effect is known.

Sun forecast for the bank holiday get out and enjoy it.

I think people are 'running around like headless chickens' because they are genuinely worried. Telling us not to concern ourselves until the true effect is known would be like me telling you not to worry if your company announced staff would find out in a few weeks if they are going to be amongst the 90% of staff to be made redundant.

He's right about one thing though there's nothing we can do about it, that's precisely why people look to government in a time of crisis.

Re: The energy crisis

Our Government has lept into action this morning to reassure the public....
Well they would have done, but turns out we haven't got a Govt atm. Too busy doing their annual playground backstabbing each other. Power is everything, literally....

Wonder if Rishi is concerned about the heating costs for his new £400k swimming pool he's added to his mansion? Do the plebs spare a thought for the poor sod ? We should crowd fund some help for him.

True, the ineptitude of the government certainly won't be helping - it'll be making it much much worse for some people. I don't understand why both candidates can't say now what they'll do. If they're concerned about the one upmanship we've seen to date, then they could both release a written plan at the same time (but that would mean caring for more people than the paid up party members).
