Ed Miliband – 2021 Comments on the Energy Crisis

The comments made by Ed Miliband, the Shadow Business Secretary, on 11 October 2021.

Yet again we see that in the face of their failed energy policy, the Government has nothing to offer businesses or consumers to help them with the crisis they are facing. For firms and families waiting to hear how the Business Secretary might help, there is a total absence of a plan and no extra help.

The Government is squabbling amongst itself, with the Treasury even denying they are talking to BEIS about providing help for large, energy intensive industries.

It is becoming clearer by the day that the Government that got us into this mess because of a decade of inaction is now paralysed by the scale of the crisis and cannot get us out of it. All the while, it is businesses and families who are paying the price of government denial, failure and an appalling refusal to understand what our country is facing.
