Ed Milliband gets tough with energy companies.

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Oooooooooooh! The energy companies must be shitting themselves lest they incur the wrath of the great and powerful Ed. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”
After buggering up the economy yet again the Tories have been left to clean up the mess. If the Tories use the phrase “inherited recession” over & over it’s because Labour use the phrase “World recession” constantly. It wasn’t a World recession; many large economies were unaffected. Gordon Brown; texture like sun, took a healthy economy (inherited), borrowed unnecessarily, sold off the country’s treasure, maxed-out the country’s credit cards and deregulated the banks to create a fake boom. Then he came up with one of the most ludicrous statements ever spoken by someone who should know better; “An end to boom and bust”. In 2008 the inevitable happened and we landed in one of the worst recessions in history. The note on the treasurer’s desk said it all; “Dear chief secretary, I’m afraid there is no money. Kind regards – and good luck! Liam.” Now the Tories are getting the economy back on track, contrary to Labour’s predictions Ed thinks he can conjure up support by appearing tough on the energy companies leaving them with three options if Labour win the election (fat chance);
1. hike prices before the price freeze.
2. hike prices after the price freeze.
3. go bust during the price freeze.
Whichever happens it will be bad news for the consumer.
The British voters are not stupid, naive or forgetful. Labour will have to go a long way to gain any credibility and I predict Mr Milliband (Ed anyway) will never be PM.
