Too easy for anyone to believe of course.
The former prime minister Gordon Brown has demanded fresh government financial support for households struggling to pay energy bills as he warned almost a million more households would be in fuel poverty this winter.
Currently the green nonsense adds £6 billion a year – £200 per household so we’re told – to bills. Remove the green nonsense and fewer would be in fuel poverty, right?
Don’t forget, fuel poverty is spending more than 10% of household income upon fuel. £200 is about 1% of median household income. Yes, it would make a difference.
