Timing of this announceme­nt is interestin­g


Sir, – I was delighted with the news that SSE are freezing their energy prices until January 2016, but I am slightly cynical regarding the timing.

This week energy regulators are going to give their verdict on whether there should be a full investigat­ion into the competitiv­e practices of energy companies, something I personally think is long overdue, I think this is a very interestin­g coincidenc­e.

Also, in September last year, Ed Miliband said that if he came to power in 2015 he would ensure energy prices were frozen.

This was ridiculed by SSE as unworkable and David Cameron called it Marxist, the same David Cameron who, when the SSE price freeze was announced, called it hugely welcome.

I think the temperatur­e needs to be taken at Westminste­r as it blows hot and cold just like the prices of the big six energy companies!
