Reeves Abandons Labour’s Price Freeze: “World Has Changed”

Brillo was another happy reader this morning, skewering Rachel Reeves on Labour’s energy price “freeze” spin. Reeves admits things were different “at the time“, and says that now “the world has changed”. She also confirmed the “cap” is a new policy:

AN: “I think honesty matters here… When you announced this policy the only fear was that prices were going up. It never crossed your mind that wholesale prices might come down… so you used the language ‘freeze’ and you never used the language ‘cap’. Now you’ve been forced to change. I think it would be honest if you admitted that… Did you use the word cap?”

RR: “We didn’t use the word cap.”

Ed’s flagship policy is in tatters…
