APPARENTLY 12 energy suppliers have gone bust this year.

I know customers are protected, but obviously, these companies owe money to someone. I take it the taxpayers are getting robbed again by these spivs, they add green taxes to all bills then fail to pay them to the Exchequer.

The Government has lost hundreds of millions over the years, yet nobody has been prosecuted. Why?

HARD to take seriously these new, glossy TV adverts from First Bus when, despite mounting criticism, this company continues to flout the law regarding the wearing of face coverings on their buses.

It’s mandatory, ie the law that this should be implemented.

What do First Bus not understand about that and why are the authorities not taking action against them for its blatant failure to implement?

THE Scottish Greens have warned against a “backwards step” of increased reliance on nuclear power.

Over the last 143 days, on average, renewable energy, mostly wind, supplied only 18.5% of our electricity.

Nuclear was 16% and fossil fuels 43.6%. The Scottish Greens should instead warn of a “backwards step” of increased reliance on unreliable subsidised wind turbines.

NOT since the Second World War has the country faced such a massive crisis, regarding food and essential supplies, such as petrol and diesel etc.

The difference is that the current crisis has been brought about by the false claims made by Boris Johnson and his government of misfits about the advantages of leaving the EU.

His most notable false claim was the amount of money that could be saved per week for the NHS by leaving the EU. Besides being a false statement, it was also a hypocritical statement for Boris to make, as the Tory Party was strongly opposed to the introduction of the NHS by the Labour government in 1948.

When in government the Tories have consistently underfunded the NHS. Boris, who is a traditional Tory, mistakenly thinks that the UK is still a world power.

Regardless of the serious plight of the country, under his leadership, Boris is more concerned that at the finale of the last night of the Proms the orchestra will not play the Tory anthems “Land of Hope and Glory” and “Rule Britannia” to the flag waving audience, even though they are perceived as relics of colonialism and slavery of Britain’s past.

With a massive majority in Parliament, and a Labour opposition in disarray, Boris is free to create further havoc on the country.
