From the dept of barefaced lies we get Amber Rudd telling us on BBCR4 Today that guaranteeing EDF energy £90/MWhr for 35 years is “great value for money. Her justification for this outrageous heist on the public purse and billpayers wallet is that it’s ‘low carbon energy’.
Hello Amber? Global surface temperature has not risen in nearly two decades while global CO2 emissions have risen faster than ever. Oil and gas prices are at a historic low, and looking likely to remain low.
Amber says we need “a mix of energy sources”. So where are the plans for new gas fired plant?
The BBC interviewer weighed in asking why we don’t make more use of interconnects to cheap continental energy. You can rely on the BBC to continue it’s illegal role as the mouthpiece of the EU. Tethering the UK to Europe by energy interconnects as the closure of UK generating capacity continues unabated is a sure way to make withdrawal from the sinking EU ship more complicated.
