Ever since Ed Miliband called for an energy price freeze to help tackle the cost of living crisis, we’ve heard yet more stories of hard pressed families being hit hard by the Tories’ failure to act on rocketing energy bills.
Ed is standing up for families and businesses by calling for action now – not just the promise of another review as was announced by David Cameron last week.
Nothing less than a price freeze will do, because that is the only way we can deal with energy companies overcharging, and get people a fairer deal.
Labour’s energy freeze will save money for 27 million households and 2.4 million businesses and our plans to reset the market will deliver fairer prices in the future.
The energy market is broken and Labour is determined to fix it.
People are sick and tired of paying over the odds because David Cameron is too weak to stand up to the energy companies.
The real test of leadership is not whether you stand up to the weak, that’s easy.
The real test of leadership is whether you stand up to the strong.
