Nandy Backtracks on Energy Nationalisation

Lisa Nandy

Labour’s Shadow Energy Secretary and rising star Lisa Nandy has today distanced herself from Jeremy Corbyn’s calls to take the big six energy firms into public ownership. Speaking today, Nandy said that:

Jeremy and I don’t want to nationalize energy…we want to democratize it…There should be nothing to stop every community in this country owning its own clean energy power station…generating power and heat for their own use.

In little over a month Labour’s gone from nationalising the big six to installing solar panels on school roofs. Are there any Corbynites that will stick to their guns?

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
