"Businesses have condemned an "appalling" £1bn a year green stealth tax that will add 11pc to the energy bills of British companies."

hospitaller thinks: "You could see this coming from 100 miles away – carbon pricing has nothing to do with the environment and never will have. It is simply another tax grab, going to government to pay for all its waste and inefficiencies. It will cost jobs and screw the economy into the ground. The only beneficiaries will be in China and India, where they are not stupid enough to reduce their competitiveness through means like this. The British people are gutless and stupid to put up with this without protest."
