Polly challenges Jackie over energy bills
Date posted: 03-10-2013
PROSPECTIVE parliamentary candidate for Thurrock, Polly Billington (Lab) has thrown down the gauntlet to Thurrock MP over energy bills.
Ms Billington said: “Ed Miliband has said he will freeze energy bills until 2017 if labour wins the next election. This will make a real difference for people in Thurrock who are struggling with the cost of living.
The question now is: will David Cameron do now what Ed will do? And will Jackie Doyle Price support a freeze to energy bills?
The energy companies started by scaremongering and now are offering a freeze – but only for the few not the many, as this will save families in average £120 and £1800 for businesses.
I want a better energy market that works for working people. That’s why it needs to be reset and customers given a break from spiralling bills.

If David Cameron doesn’t act it will show he’s on the side of the energy companies and not ordinary people.
Britain can be better than this. Let’s start making a difference now.”
