You’ve gone completely insane!
From the Guardian:
Labor has confirmed that it will block all new domestic oil and gas developments if it takes power, proposing instead to invest heavily in renewable energy sources such as wind power and also in nuclear power.
Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Jonathan Ashworth said details would be forthcoming.
“What we’re going to do in the coming weeks is set out how we’re going to invest in the green jobs of the future, cut costs and create a more sustainable energy supply,” he said on Sky’s Sunday show Sophy Ridge.
“We’ll be laying out that in a significant mission in the coming weeks and then we’ll announce more details.
A party source said: “We are opposed to the granting of new licenses for oil and gas in the North Sea.” They will do nothing to cut the bills, the Tories have admitted; They undermine our energy security and would push through our climate goals by horse and carriage.
It’s a mystery how the development of oil and gas from the North Sea is “undermining our energy security”.
