WTF is happening to the UK??? – Windfall tax on companies who operate in a highly competitive industry and who actually don’t make that much money from domestic consumers.
I can't help thinking this place is doomed and we're witnessing a full-scale return to a 70's style Labour administration. Just this quote from an idiot from Unite makes me want to pack my bags... 'Unless energy companies are prepared to take genuine action...the government must take tough action and levy a windfall tax' Dougie Rooney, Unite union. and... National Energy Action, which helps people on low incomes, said it was keen to see further details. "We would welcome proposals to extend financial help to vulnerable groups such as families with young children and people with disabilities, " communications director Maria Wardrobe said (Derek Chair and Franny Sideboard refused to comment!).
