Just read this on Sky News online:

The government previously confirmed the energy price guarantee, which will reduce the unit cost of electricity and gas so a typical British household pays around £2,500 a year on average on their energy bill for the next two years, from 1 October.

It is incorrect! The ‘price guarantee’ will NOT REDUCE the unit cost of electricity and gas. The unit cost is still going up on 1st October, albeit not by the original 80%, but it is certainly not reducing! This sort of incorrect reporting infuriates me. People read it; believe it and ‘congratulate’ the gov🤬
