What does MP think of soaring energy costs?

Many political observers conclude that soaring energy prices are ‘theburning issue’ of the day.

But how does our constituent MP Amber Rudd judge this claim? This winter many hard-pressed Hastings and St Leonards residents will leave their central heating switched off.

However, it is difficult to believe that Amber Rudd will be sat huddled down in a chair in a woolly hat, scarf and dressing gown, fighting the shivers.

What is her reaction to these energy suppliers? Are they the acceptable face of capitalism or a heartless bunch of profit-mad individuals hell-bent on exploiting a basic human need to keep warm?

She will probably advocate switching supplies but isn’t this just adults encouraged to play the childish game of musical chairs?
