People are dying because Gordon has used green issues to raise taxes

The high cost of energy

Rising fuel prices are behind a trebling in the number of homes disconnected. What lies behind these rises? 50% is due to taxes imposed by the Treasury. The sad link between green measures and public impoverishment looks set to continue. The government bungled the green tax programme. They claimed the tax would be targeted at big business but the manner in which these costs have been imposed means that they are reaching the public. When a massive cost comes out of nowhere (as these did in 2007), companies will always seek to raise prices. This could have been avoided by talking to business leaders, followed by a slow roll-out of taxes and compensatory measures. When thousands of people are dying because they can't afford heating, a little more thought could have gone a long way
