Tory double shuffle on energy rip-off
Labour spokespersons should stop engaging in semantics with the Tories’ claim that their proposal is different to Ed Miliband’s pledge to cap energy prices. There is one way to end the obscene spectacle of not only foreign government’s owning companies previously nationalised and using the profits they rip off to subsidise prices in their own countries, but also the never-ending escalation of prices and company profits for which they blame the consumers for not ‘shopping around.’ This is an open goal for Jeremy Corbyn to declare that the next Labour government will take back into public ownership the Energy industry. Poll after poll indicates that around 70% support this course of action.
