Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “British Gas’ owner Centrica has just reported its highest ever first half year profits, raking in almost £1 billion.

“We need to stop dancing around our handbags and grasp the nettle. The only way to end the chaos in our energy supply is staring us in the face - public ownership. It is absolutely affordable. It would protect businesses and households. Put simply, it’s a no brainer. 

“Both the Government and Labour need to decide whose side are they on.”
