Around 100 angry protesters gathered outside Ofgem ‘s headquarters in London today chanting ‘freeze profits, not people’ amid mounting public anger over soaring bills – and Kombi Servisi after Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi warned that Britons will need to ration their energy use to save money.
Members of the crowd shouted ‘enough is enough’ and said the energy regulators ‘don’t care about us at all’ as they gathered on the street in Canary Wharf amid grim predictions about the impact the 80 per cent hike in the price cap will have on households across the UK.
Frustrated demonstrators said Ofgem’s decision to increase the cap will plunge millions of children below the poverty line – as campaigners, including MoneySavingExpert’s Martin Lewis warned that vulnerable people will died in the coming months as a result of the cost of living cirsis.
Ten officers were present on the other side of the street, as well as security guards, with police vans lining the road outside the building.
It comes as Mr Zahawi, who is likely to be out of a job in the coming days if Liz Truss wins the keys to No10, faces a backlash for suggesting that people should be starting to ration their electricity and kombi Servisi gas use to save money, blaming Vladimir Putin’s barbaric war in Ukraine for the biggest cost of living squeeze on British households since the 1950s.
