Tories put 'fat cat' energy bosses before struggling people this winter


TORIES and Lib Dem MPs have voted against a bid to cut energy bills this winter.

The Coalition Government blocked Labour's bid to give the energy regulator the power to force suppliers to cut bills.

Bills would have been cut by law whenever the wholesale cost of energy fell.

As temperature's plummet, it would have helped people struggling to pay their bills.

Instead, the Big Six energy suppliers will continue to make record profits for fat cat bosses - even though their costs have plummeted.

Angela Rayner said: "The Tories, Lib Dems and the two new UKIP MPs have put the fat cats first.

"They voted for the energy bosses to continue making staggering profits, even though people are struggling to pay their energy bills this winter.

"It is cold-hearted and cynical and shows whose side the Coalition and UKIP are really on.

"Only a Labour government will take tough action to reduce gas and electricity bills."
