Cut our energy bills now

We, the undersigned, demand the government takes urgent action to cut domestic fuel bills, especially for the poorest and the most vulnerable.

The cost of living crisis is hurting us. In survey after survey, thousands of openDemocracy readers have said they are most worried about the impact that rising fuel prices will have on them. Some have said they expect to have to turn to food banks for the first time because of rising energy costs.

Being told by ministers or MPs that we just need to work longer hours or take on more jobs or learn to cook is laughable. The cost of living crisis demands real government action, starting with urgent steps to cut fuel bills now.
