Coalition hypocrisy writ large upon the face of the British landscape, in a Sino-British deal that’s likely to get right up your sinuses.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s ConDemNation today)

The Lib Dems and Tories have just agreed to raise UK electricity prices for the next 35 years.

The Tories and the Lib Dems furiously attacked Ed Miliband when he pledged that Labour would freeze electricity prices for 2 years.

They argued that governments setting prices was akin to socialism.

Strange then that part of the deal to allow Chinese and French state-run companies to build the new nuclear power station at Hinkley means that energy prices will have to double in ten years.

That means the Tories and the Lib Dems have just guaranteed price rises of 10% a year for the next decade.

Not only that – but as part of the deal electricity prices are then guaranteed to rise by inflation for the next 35 years in order to give the French and the Chinese a good return on their investment.
