It probably says more about the Labour Party leadership when the only policy they seem to have come up with that has rattled the Con/LibDem Coalition is ED Miliband's plan for a two year freeze in fuel bills.
The Coalition has been on the back foot over energy costs since Mr Miliband's announcement at his party conference in September that he intended to freeze prices for 20 months if Labour wins the next general election in 2015.
So from early next year the cost of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), an insulation scheme, will be reduced in a move that should shave £30 to £35 from bills.
There will also be a taxpayer-funded £600 million rebate on the Warm Homes Discount, which helps those in fuel poverty, saving customer another £12 on average.
Yippee. But of course it not money taken of the Energy Suppliers its a form of direct taxation transferred to indirect taxation.
However the Coalition government will son be able to say that they have reduced the number of people in fuel poverty at a stroke.
By simply change the definition of what being poor is.
