Yes but it could well be founded on the Climate Change schtick, as Ed and Lib Dems are eco warrior's and want to replace gas with Renewables.

I am getting prepared for no gas and electric.

 

60 cans of baked beans, sauna suits and elastic bands.

 

At least I would stay warm, even if the beans are cold :)

 

There has been talk for years that energy supplies during the Winter have been close to not meeting demand and there would be blackouts.  Hopefully this Winter won't be when they have to trigger emergency measures including closing down major users of power and having blackouts for periods.

UB, this article fro the Guardian's economics editor relates to some of what you're saying. He's talking about a triple financial whammy and at least some of it comes from the 'just in time' economy.

The combined challenges loom of an economic slowdown, rising energy costs and the transition to net zero, says Guardian economics editor Larry...

Not surpising some people opt to move to the South of France.  

 

I can see many more Brits looking across the channel and being a bit jealous of our French neighbours.  Economic outlook for France is looking a lot healthier than the UK, good level of growth and low inflation.

What is Johnson trying to do now? Even the Mail thinks he risks inflaming things further with France. First the jibes in Franglais and now Macron is behaving like a lover being jilted at the last minute. I guess Bozo has plenty of experience of dealing with that.

The Prime Minister risked pouring fresh fuel on the fire over the £50billion Ausuk submarine pact by breaking into 'Franglais' jibes and appearing to...

The head of Iceland supermarkets says there are more food banks than branches of Macdonalds in th UK, on BBC Question Time.

 

Also that removing the increase in UC will mean a choice between heating and eat for large numbers of people. In one of the richest countries in the world, it's not right.

UK should not need food banks.

 

Biggest issue affecting UK household finances is the cost of housing.

 

In my area in the south west, it costs about £1000 a month for a 2 bedroom house. 

 

OK If there are 2 people in work earning above national minimum wage.  But if one of them is not able to work for any period or they are self employed with no work coming in, they may struggle to cover rent and also be able to pay for basic living costs.

 

If people are in employment, where the earnings are not going to be reliable, as soon as they start struggling they need to be making a claim for Universal Credit. This may provide benefit entitlement which will help towards living costs, during any period where earnings are reduced.

 

Use a benefits calculator website such as Turn2us or Entitledto, to check the level of earnings where claiming Universal Credit might be required to provide support during a downturn in earnings.

I hope people are able to read this in the New York Times. Their thoughts on the PM's style and ambition to join the USMCA agreement.

 

WWW.NYTIMES.COM

U.K.’s prime minister makes headlines, yet experts say it is unclear if his lighthearted style is helping stake out a post-Brexit role on the global stage.

Each time I look at this thread, even the title is an offence and insult to the British (while it lasts) nation

 

What will we call England and Wales and its Tax haven protectorates?

 

Although Johnsons 'protection' runs to sub 20 miles now doesn't it?
