The UK electricity bill is the highest in the entire world

So now we know. All Rishi Sunak’s talk about working hard to get our energy bills down has been silly nonsense.

The UK has the highest electricity bills, not just in Europe or the West, but in the World.

Worse still, the UK had the third-sharpest increase in electricity prices worldwide, over the last five years.

The 35 per cent increase suggests that prices were already high before pressure from events like the Russia-Ukraine war pushed them up further.

And that suggests government mismanagement. It should be a national government’s duty to make sure its citizens get the best value for money when they pay utility bills.

Wasn’t that what privatisation was about – at least in part (the other part being investment in improving the infrastructure)?

New research reveals that the UK has the highest electricity bills. Brits pay more for their power than anywhere else on the planet.

There’s only one logical conclusion: global issues didn’t make the real difference – Tory government decisions have forced up the cost of living in the UK to breaking point.

    Not true of course. Denmark and Germany’s are higher and their systems are nationalised.

        Put into Google “Who has the most expensive electricity in Europe ? ” The answer will come up as – Denmark is highest !! 2nd Germany !! 3rd is UK !! You are spreading deliberate lies and false information !

        Have you taken this up with City A.M. and the researchers who provided that organisation with its information?
