Pigeon English, michael’s about right, try this chart:
If I was the British government, I would be rather worried about this chart; very, very worried. UK natural gas has now breached the equivalent to $40 per million Btu barrier (~300 pence per therm). In oil terms, it's now trading above $230 per barrel of oil equivalent. pic.twitter.com/5hUnGASH8N

Michael, thanks for the correction; considering the time scale, the conversion to electricity generation by gas must have started under the Conservatives. Blair’s lot continued and expanded it, and rolled out the gas boilers in homes though. Maybe British Gas should never have been privatised?
– “What do the poorer countries/people do, freeze to death, this Winter?”
How about we Insulate Britain? It’d stop those protesters from blocking the motorways too.
But that’s too slow, it’s too late for this winter. Many deaths from freezing can be avoided if more people congregate in fewer buildings.
