Back in August I wrote this: UK Gas and Electricity Crisis Looming about how this winter we faced real difficulties with our gas supply. After the Christmas week I now think problems are imminent. Maybe the end of this week if the forecasts are reasonably accurate. I've written this: It was cold, will it be cold when it matters? about the current situation. I'll be amazed if we make it through this winter without the most significant energy problems we've seen in more than a decade.
