From STV last night:
Energy companies have agreed to work with the Scottish Government on a package of support measures to help people struggling with the cost of living. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon met with representatives from the sector in a summit at Bute House in Edinburgh on Tuesday. At the meeting, it was agreed that the UK Government must immediately cancel any further energy price rises for domestic consumers.https://news.stv.tv/scotland/first-minister-nicola-sturgeon-hosts-energy-summit-amid-cost-of-living-crisis

The ousted Tory leader was spotted laughing and waving with his wife of 15 months onboard a private boat on the picturesque Greek island of Evia. The trip with their two children, Wilfred and Romy, comes straight after they celebrated a belated honeymoon in Slovenia. The British leader has been criticised for being absent amid the UK’s energy bill crisis.https://metro.co.uk/2022/08/22/boris-johnson-island-hops-in-greece-before-final-two-weeks-of-work-17221951/

Dominic Raab is the Deputy PM. Rishi Sunak is a candidate for PM. What are they doing?
I know! The favourite to be next PM! She’ll be on this:
Ah, ‘within weeks?‘ Two, five, eleven? But her priority is still tax cuts?
Her next Chancellor. What does he say:
Sensitive, caring – that’ll be like choosing between the Devil and the deep blue sea?
