Chill on the gas, and the utilities

OK, so:
1) the Russian gas freeze doesn’t matter overmuch. It does amusing things to gas prices, but ultimately a whole bunch of other people still make gas so it doesn’t really matter.

2) if utilities passed wholesale prices onto consumers, as an enormous coterie of cod-socialist morons were suggesting would have been a good idea when wholesale oil and gas prices briefly plummeted in the autumn, then – instead of really trivial and non-relevant rises averaged over a couple of years – we’d have actually seen some terrifying “giz a tenner or you’ll freeze”-ness re-enacted.

Conclusion: paranoid freaks get upset about irrelevant nonsense (i.e. it costs fuck all as a % of our income) like energy and food; neither really matters; world continues, aside from the extent to which idiot politicians have bent to accommodate said paranoid freaks.
