EU environmental rules could lead to Britain running out of energy within three years, Ofgem has warned.

Britain is facing the rising risk of an energy shortfall as supplies are being hit by tough European Union environmental laws and the closure of ageing coal and oil-fired power stations, according to the watchdog.

This has been known for years. The last Labour government acknowledged it in an energy paper before the election (The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan, 2009) – although it was carefully tucked away in the “Analytical Annex”. Mr Ed Miliband knows all about this. Which is why he’ll probably not mention it. Can’t have anyone snitching on the EU.
