Green Ed’s Taxes are Officially Under Review

The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson has confirmed this morning that green subsidies on energy bills are now under review. Just yesterday Cameron said that those very same green subsidies were “necessary”A quick and welcome u-turn, even by Dave’s standards…

These taxes bump up gas and electricity bills by up to 9%. Without nationalisation government cannot dictate how energy companies are run, any more than it can dictate the price of oil. What it can do is ease the pressure for bill-payers right now by suspending Ed Miliband’s levy. This isn’t some notional freeze in the future, you don’t have to wait until 2015 to do this. The Tories should bin their commitment to these taxes right now, and let Ed be the one who pledges to increase energy prices at the next election should he want to bring them back. If Green Ed thinks there is a cost of living crisis, he should be big enough to admit the part he has played in it.
