‘No desire to fight energy price hike’
“We all know that night follows day, but surely we shouldn’t have to accept that consumer energy prices should increase at exponential rates year by year ”
MAN learnt about fire providing comforting and life saving warmth countless thousands of years ago.
Yet we continue to find it difficult to obtain affordable domestic heating energy in the winter months.
Once again, energy companies are increasing gas prices to an unbelievable level.
My unit gas price has increased by 50 per cent since the start of the year. Disappointingly, the reasons given are plausible.
Some smaller energy companies are now going bankrupt.
The regulator is trying to control the situation, but these will not prevent prices increasing year by year.
The government’s answer will be consumers should seek a new provider and the old should wear double layers of clothes and drink warm liquids.
We all know that night follows day, but surely we shouldn’t have to accept that consumer energy prices should increase at exponential rates year by year.
Has the government lost interest in the very obvious lack of a solution to stabilisation of the country’s energy demands?
I can recall in another age a claim that the country had sufficient coal to provide the country’s energy demands for 2,000 years.
I can recall an argument that relying on other countries to provide our energy would eventually lead to being at the mercy of other country’s prices. COLIN BEARDMORE STONE
HIGH PRICE: Letter writer Colin Beardmore says the government appears to have no solution to tackle rising energy bills every year, fearing we are at the mercy of other country’s prices.
