Something Needs to be Done Before Winter Bites.

The fact that former Prime Minister Sir John Major has called for a new tax on the profits of energy companies really does show the need for something to be done before winter bites.

Everybody knows that Red Ed Miliband's price freeze idea is such a joke that it isn't even worth the paper its written on but the fact of the matter is that as many people face the choice of heating or eating when winter sets in something needs to be done.

I say we expand the number of energy companies so as to create more competition because it is absolutely clear for all to see that whatever the company, they have all bitten off more than they can chew and in many cases even breached price guarantees.

Tax payers deserve better, service users deserve better and the government needs to act sooner rather than later.
