This week’s post is about a very serious & effective political act that any of us can make, right now.
No need to wait for the next general election, you can enforce your vote immediately.

We have an amazing chance right now. In 1996 the EU began deregulating the gas and electricity markets, to open them to competition & since then we have had the choice to choose what company we get our personal supply of energy from.

Imagine the whole country switched tonight (it only takes 5 minutes)?
We would wake tomorrow with a completely different national energy policy & the government & their fossil fuel backers would be bypassed!
