Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) BP profits, TUC General Secretary Paul Nowak said:

“These eye-watering profits are an insult to working families as millions struggle with sky-high bills.

“Oil and gas companies have been allowed to get away with treating the British public like cash machines. 

“The government has left billions on the table by refusing to impose a proper windfall tax on the likes of BP. And even now ministers are refusing to take action to fix our broken energy market and stop this obscene price gouging.  

“We could have lower household bills and an energy system that served the public, if government taxed excessive profits, introduced a social tariff and created public ownership of new clean power.”
