You really do wonder which Universe they are living on.

In the House of Lords, Lady Rawlings, 74, asked energy minister Baroness Verma: “Have the Government considered as a simple, practical measure encouraging people to use electric blankets?

“They are the answer to many of the Government’s aims. They are very green as they use little electricity, and they reduce the need for so much heating in the home.

“They also make the home very energy efficient – ie, costing less – which is what the Government seems to have as an aim.”


Well as she sleeps in her palatial centrally heated home with a £300 per day House of Lord’s expenses; She claimed £5200 for just 16 days in June alone; one really does wonder in what world she lives. Does she not realise that if you have no other heat in the house pipes freeze. Does she anticipate that those on minimum incomes spend their lives in bed. The full story is here.

As Gordon Brown’s former Press Secretary, Charlie Whelan, recently remarked “They are on a different planet a lot of the time”! Sorry Charlie, make that ALL the time!
