Well the forecasters managed to predict a cold blast from the continent, bringing along with it heavy snow. It was forecast to hit the north east coast of England today. They were not wrong. As I write I see huge flakes flashing by my window. Whipped by a biting wind they race by, caught in the glow of my outside lamp I see a blizzard.We receive such little snow these days, it seems something of a novelty.
But come the morrow no doubt half the country shall be paralyzed, brought to a standstill by snowflakes.
Images of impassable highways, of people stranded in freezing conditions and I am sure somewhere in England, some poor pensioner shall perish from hypothermia or malnutrition (it happens). Energy prices are crippling people.
The price of electricity is linked to the price of oil. The price of oil has plummeted, so how can the energy companies be allowed to continually "rip off" the population with such disregard for decency.
Riddle me that Mr Brown. !!!
