Whilst I agree brexit was a f-ing stupid idea and voted remain, our wise overlords were pushing through new gas exploration (also f-ing stupid idea) because we had a bumper sales day selling gas to the EU at high prices. Once Holland and Germany's storage facilities were full, prices dropped... Except they didn't in the UK.

We also have no nationalised energy companies so we can't dictate the price that is reasonable to pay. We get the price dictated to us. We've basically become hostage to neoliberalist capitalism - let's play "who can run a country into ground the quickest!"
