The energy companies and the utilities are laughing at you all the way to the bank. As you struggle to meet your fuel and energy bills these companies continue to drive inflation higher and higher whilst maximising their ever increasing profits and paying huge dividends to their shareholders. It is immoral that they are making huge profits and not simply passing on costs to consumers. Instead they are adding huge profit margins to their prices. In this way they are fixing prices and driving inflation without regards. Their behaviour is immoral and wrong. They are exploiting consumers and laughing at them whilst the Tory government does nothing at all.
To tackle inflation you must reel in the profiteering of the Energy and Utilities who are driving inflation upwards for their own ends
To tackle inflation you must deal with the Energy and Utilities companies because these are the root cause of inflation. The energy and utilities companies are driving inflation upwards through their greed and exploitation by over inflating their prices and maximising their profits. The profiteering exploits of these companies is immoral and seemingly has no limits. These are not increased costs that the consumer is being asked to pay for : they are increased profits. The energy and utilities companies are misleading the public and driving inflation ever higher.
What is a Price Cap and why are the energy and utilities companies deciding what the Price Cap is ?
Surely a Price Cap is a limit drawn up by the government to say and dictate a fair price for the consumer. Well not in this instance it seems. It appears that a Price Cap is an amount decided by the energy and utilities companies themselves setting what they believe is a fair price for the consumer to pay. Really ? Fuel and energy is not a thing that we as the consumer can live without in the 21st century. It is a necessity for our modern way of life. These energy and utilities companies realise this so can dictate what they expect us to pay. This comes as a result of the complete lack of regulation in the industry for decades dating back to Margaret Thatcher’s policies of privatisation of the industry. Now we all see and witness the result. Thank Thatcher for all this goodness and blatant profiteering and this current ‘Opt-out of all responsibilities’ government.
The government now has a duty to reel in these energy and utilities companies by making them operate for the good of the UK and its citizens. If this cannot be done the Government should stop them operating in this country by withdrawing their licences to operate. The government has a power to stop companies operating if they are deemed to be outside of national interest. Now is the time to act but don’t expect this current government to do this. The Conservatives have no effective policies that can be used to this good. Other countries are quickly realising this.

It’s time to take control of the Energy Market in the UK and give it back to the people for the good of the people
The Tories won’t do this so they remain effectively powerless to deal with Inflation. Currently Sunak and Truss are skirting around the issue with half baked ideas regarding lowering taxation. 4p was the figure being discussed or discussing ideas that could lead to recession and job losses. Borrowing money is not the answer nor is giving small handouts of £67? going to make any impression. To tackle Inflation you must address the causes and that means dealing with the Energy and utilities companies and putting a government freeze on any more price rises. It means introducing a Price Cap that benefits the consumer instead of penalising them. Government intervention is needed. This is a crisis. It needs a Cobra Meeting and a War like effort whereby we are all in this together. The time us not right to let the immoral profiteering of the Energy and Utilities companies bring down Britain. We are all in this together. The Government should be taking control of these immoral companies and acting in the interests of Britain and the majority of it’s citizens. Sadly the Tories are not capable of this.
