Uk Government Seeks Power Sale

Recommended Posts

Britain’s leading energy suppliers have been approached by government advisers to sound out interest in its 35.2 per cent stake in British Energy, which is valued at £2bn-plus.

The government has mandated UBS to help with a potential sale process, while British Energy has appointed NM Rothschild as its adviser. Eon and RWE of Germany, Électricité de France, Iberdrola of Spain and Centrica of the UK have all been asked if they would be interested in acquiring part of the stake, people close to the situation said.

haha either they are idiots or about to create a massive tax raid.

Sorry, shouldn't giggle, but when I saw the thread title I had visions of them offering to ratify Lisbon at 200m Euros per clause.

It's great to see the spirit of thatcherism selling the family silver again in times of desperation. Looks like joe public won't be getting a look-in this time.
