Cameron And Clegg Vow Energy Bills Cut
|Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg|
Cynical duplicitous rhetoric, straight from the propaganda machine of the energy industry cartel. Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber are playing catch up and are loosing. To offer the bribe of a 96 pence per week cut in energy bills, in the expectation that people will tug their forelocks and be diffidently grateful for such generosity, smacks of desperation in their frantic efforts to stem the growing resentment and criticism of energy company excesses. Add to this, the patronising insult of a taxpayer funded gift of £1000 to home buyers to spend on "energy saving measure" completely dismisses those who live in rented accommodation both in the private and social housing sectors, where much of the housing stock stands damp and cold and in desperate need of maintenance and insulation. A not very well disguised attempt by government to divert attention away from the real issues and camouflage neglect with a veneer concern.
The energy companies are out of control and promises to 'reset the broken energy market' and make bills simpler by Ed Miliband, or a 96 pence per week bribe with a £1000 gift for "home owners" from the ConDem coalition, will not bring the cartel back into line. Until such times as politicians acquire the fortitude to do what is right rather than what may be expedient to placate public perceptions, then the energy company consumers will continue to be exploited and subjected to the excesses of market greed.
