Downing Street Confirms Energy Price Freeze Story is Untrue

20131129-094318.jpg

Paul Waugh quotes a Treasury source as saying that the story doing the rounds this morning that the government was going to ask energy companies to freeze prices is “complete b******s”, now a Downing Street source has confirmed to Guido that the story is untrue. Which given their recent record for u-turns, egg-turns and intellectual incoherence is perhaps surprising. Number 10 sources stress that it was the BBC who got the story wrong, saying it appears to have come from a “confused” energy company and so is not a u-turn. Another expertly handled No. 10 press operation.
