We are saved!

I have written 9,200 words on this over the weekend

They will be out very soon

The energy plan is to arrive!

Anyone want to guess what it will be?

I’m going for print money – or gilts – to nationalise the companies so that taxpayers can carry the losses. Any others?

I hope to publish a plan to address all these issues very soon

  1. He’s spent a whole weekend on it? Surely we are saved!

    How arrogant do you have to be to think that one man can plan a major economic policy over the weekend?

  2. Bloke in the Fourth Reich

    Well here in the fourth reich, the crony crapitalist government is going to charge extra fees on every gas bill to bail out gas companies who locked in prices to some consumers and didn’t cover themselves with futures or stock. Legalised breach of contract by diktat.

    And we don’t even get the companies nationalized into the bargain.

    What do you call this, privatizing profits and socializing losses, eh?

  3. Spud was quoted by the interviewer in the R4 Today interview with Beer Starmer this morning. Apparently approvingly. Sir Beer ducked the question, I believe.

    (I’m probably right – he ducked all the others)

  4. Murphy sets his aspirations far too low. Rather than grifting in pursuit of vermine, what about a Nobel Prize or two?

    I’m sure if only he’d divert his planet sized brain from tax policy for a week or so he could solve the economic, technical and theoretical problems of nuclear fusion power generation, perpetual motion and, for good measure, show how to turn water into wine and feed the starving hordes with a brace of haddock.
