Are prices in the UK higher than elsewhere?
Energy prices are rising faster in the UK than in any other country in the EU, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
The OECD report found UK energy prices are 2.2% higher than last year. The rate of energy price inflation is four times the increase in Germany, while prices actually fell in France, Belgium, Denmark and Spain.
That wasn’t actually the question was it? They were asking about the level of prices, not the rate of change. And the UK is resolutely mid-table on the level of prices.
Lying bastards, eh?
