Re the cost of living list, this list is not appropriate. The energy companies with their enormous profits would win again as it would be our tax contributions used to provide this funding . This would lead to their even greater profits at our expense instead of that public money being used for our long urgent needs in NHS and all public services. Additionally, there are working people in many industries in need of better wages to keep up with the rise of the cost of living. They need a proper settlement to their disputes in pursuit of this need.
