Now that it has been publicly announced that our energy bills will double next year compared with the amount we have been paying this year, now is the time to make it clear who are the benefactors of this heist.

The company that our energy suppliers buy our gas from is jointly-owned by Russia and Germany and no doubt many British shareholders are about to profit from these increases.

But also included in this increase is the five per cent VAT that the government is about to see their duty double.

What has not been published is that 20 per cent of our energy bills include environmental tax.

Why is Mr Starmer not opposing this tax hike. I do wonder why.
