EDF’s UK profits is proof of our broken economy

EDF raked in more than a £1 billion in the UK.

Commenting on EDF’s UK profits rocketing to £1.12 billion, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said:  “It’s clear that the energy crisis is causing absolute misery for consumers in the UK while creating bumper profits for companies like EDF.

“Energy companies are raking in these record profits on the backs of people who can barely pay their bills. And it’s going to get worse if the Chancellor allows the price hike to go ahead this April.

“We really need to fix the system. Rishi Sunak should pull the plug on unfettered profiteering and bring in a tough windfall tax to fund a pay rise for the NHS.”
