Reading supporters fight energy swindle

November 05, 2013 9:54 AM

Local supporters gathered on a bright but cold lunchtime in the centre of Reading’s shopping district to protest at the government’s green taxes on energy and sky-high gas and electric bills. They handed out leaflets in support of our ‘Stop the Energy Swindle’ campaign.

If you too are fed-up with ever-rising energy bills, go to www.energyswindle.org and send a letter to your local MP. Every one counts as our campaign seems to be having an impact on the Chancellor. The newspapers report that he is considering lopping off £75-worth of green taxes on the average energy bill, we need your help to make sure this happens and more.

‘Green energy taxes are a bad thing because the costs are exorbitant,’ said local supporter Joe Green in Reading. Renewable will always need subsidies because ‘they can only provide real assistance if and when the sun shines and/or the wind blows strongly enough and for long enough when the power is required.’

Reading shopkeepers were delighted to see that someone was taking on the government and its green taxes. ‘Good on you!’ said one.
