The crooks at EDF – their Gallic gullets already bloated by massive government renewable energy subsidies – are putting up electricity prices in the UK by an eye-watering 8.9%, forcing tens of thousands more Britons into fuel poverty. Their website is crammed full of eco-nonsense like this…they are saving the world dontya know, so who gives a stuff about pensioners and low income families? And meanwhile, the BBC brings us the pathetic squeaks of protest of climate change minister Chris Huhne, who, they faithfully report like lapdogs, is going to fight the increases. If they were doing their job properly they would be telling us instead just how much his rabid climate policies have caused the hike.
But fat chance. The reality is that the BBC is also part of the scam. EU pensioner and apparatchik Lord Patten, chairman of the BBC so-called trustees, tops up his fat earnings by a number of directorships, including as a member of the “stakeholder advisory panel” of a company called…EDF. His companion in the three-monthly pow-wows to tell the Frenchies how to extract more of our cash is – er, another BBC trustee, Diane Coyle, his deputy chairman. Chances of the ranks of BBC eco-warriors – already dragooned by the trustees into suppressing the views of those who disagree with climate change lies – reporting the truth about this gang of Gallic thieves? Zero.
