Cameron won't take on the energy companies; Labour will

Strong against the weak, weak against the strong. Its a description that sums up David Cameron perfectly, says David Ellesmere, Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Ipswich.

There can be no greater illustration of this than the way he refuses to stand up to the energy companies.


When British Gas recently announced that it was cutting its gas bills by 5% David Cameron welcomed it and said it proved we dont need to reform the energy market.

What he didnt mention was that the cuts wont come into effect until the end of February - after the worst of the cold weather - and that wholesale gas prices have actually fallen by 20%.

This demonstrates exactly what Labour have been saying about the energy companies: they are quick to put up our bills when global energy prices increase, but slow to reduce them when global energy prices fall.

David Camerons comments show hes not interested in taking on the energy companies.

Hell never have to worry about paying his gas bill. So he refuses to help those who do.
