Ofgem, the energy regulator, has warned that Britain faces sweeping energy blackouts by 2015.
This is hardly surprising as EU rules have forced the closure of large combustion plants and the transfer of energy production to unreliable, expensive ‘renewables’.
The Large Combustion Plant Directive has begun to shut down plants that provide us with a third of our national energy use. This law has already sounded the death knell for aluminium production in the UK. This shows that, contrary to Europhile arguments, the EU has actually cost British jobs. Now the EU is going to turn the lights off.
Any moves to keep the lights on will undoubtedly mean more gas production, more imported fuel and higher costs for consumers.
We really aren’t getting value for money by being a part of the EU, are we?
