The UK is now warning citizens that their energy bills are about to surge over 60% in October. About 75,000 citizens have pledged to refuse to pay their bills for a mass non-payment action under a campaign by ‘Don’t Pay UK’ that is trying to get 1 million people to join the consumer strike. Don’t Pay UK believes 6.3 million UK households will be pushed into power bill poverty this winter, with millions more feeling the stress of out-of-control inflation. Critics say non-payment will push prices up higher for everyone.

The West’s anti-Russian sanctions are pushing Europe and the UK to the brink.

Whereas Spain has banned air conditioning from dropping below 27 degrees C (80.6 degrees F) in the summer due to the upcoming energy crunch, the UK is now warning citizens that their energy bills are about to surge over 60%.

From Bloomberg, “UK’s Ofgem Warns Households to Prepare for Difficult Winter”:

Britain’s energy regulator Ofgem warned that bill payers face a challenging winter ahead as energy prices continue an unprecedented rise that could push millions into poverty.

Bills are set to climb more than 60% in October to record levels and again in January, as surging energy prices push up the cost of supplying households. The UK has a cap on tariffs that shields consumers from daily spikes in wholesale prices but there’s little protection from gas prices that have tripled in just the last year.

“I know this situation is deeply worrying for many people,” said Jonathan Brearley, Ofgem’s chief executive officer. “The trade-offs we need to make on behalf of consumers are extremely difficult and there are simply no easy answers right now.”

Pushing millions into poverty is a small price to pay to defeat Putin.

The sadly un-humorous fact is that most of these countries, including and especially the US could convert to making their own ETHANOL fuel from crap land. Despite all the lies people have been propagandized with, Brazil was able to get 6 times or more Energy out than it, including making the tractors to work the land. A number of years ago blaming the rise in food price due to making alcohol was also BS propaganda. It was from corn and Ethanol doesn’t consume the protein, just the carbs. That protein can be used for animal feed or fertilizer, enabling more… Read more »
