Tories to go for gas security before low-carbon transition


It was Mrs Thatcher’s government that initiated the “dash for gas” which made us/UK dependent on gas imports, consuming an abundant available heating and cooking fuel with very little thermodynamic loss, downgrading it to generate electricity with the inevitable losses. Moreover gas has a huge infrastructure for delivery to houses and many other users. Now it appears the Conservatives are set to repeat the mistake.
