The lights are off, nobody's home

Ofgem has finally admitted that the EU and British government have put us in serious danger of electricity rationing and blackouts thanks to their regressive, ill-thought-out policies requiring power stations to be closed in favour of windmills.

UKIP has been warning for some time that we are approaching the point of no return where too many power stations are being decommissioned without adequate replacements being brought online to keep the lights on.  Windmills will only produce a fraction of the electricity we need and at many times the cost of coal and gas power stations.

The deliberate undermining of the UK's energy security, making us reliant on imported gas from countries that really aren't very friendly towards us - giving aid and comfort to our enemies - isn't incompetence, it's an act of treason.
