UK spare electricity capacity to fall this winter per BBC News
This BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-33527967 manages to warn of power shortages this winter but apart from this brief comment: ' EU regulations have forced older polluting power plants to close.' barely hint at the reasons.
Maybe the last Labour government and its obsession with replacing proper power stations with windmills might be partially to blame.Perhaps we could all ask Ed Miliband to pay our surcharges for us.
