British PM says that the children on school strike are “wasting lesson time”. That may well be the case. But then again, political leaders have wasted 30 yrs of inaction. And that is slightly worse.

🚨 LOVELY EMAIL FROM RED BOX READER KLAXON 🚨 Hi Matt, Seeing as it’s Valentine’s Day and you asked how we’re doing, I though I would share a little story with you. About a year ago I wrote into Red Box for the first (and until today, only) time with a comment...

Yeah, I think the fact that a fossil fuel company is annoyed with green taxes suggests they're doing exactly what they were meant to do, there, Sir Jim.

Curiously, the “at worst, as simply stupid” line flagged in the press release appears to have been cut from the letter that was actually sent. Did someone think better of being quite so rude?

Sir Jim Ratcliffe sure knows how to charm. A week after claiming the UK government doesn’t understand the Richter scale, here’s the Ineos boss’s latest missive: to Jean-Claude Juncker, lambasting Europe’s “at best foolish, at worst stupid” green taxes.

Hi, I think they are referring to the story I wrote in today’s paper about strengthening opposition to fracking and the government’s rejection of industry calls to relax the seismic rules - I quoted Ineos expressing disappointment at that decision

Also never sure that “no plans” is the most robust denial. Conceivably one could be considering something without having actually made firm plans to act on it yet...

They have, including to me, but this week they had gone strangely silent - they hadn't responded to any requests for comment since Ineos's rant on Monday - which was fuelling suspicions over whether a change might have been afoot.

Bad times for Petrofac, the oil services company run by Tory donor Ayman Asfari. Shares down 25% after one of its former senior execs is convicted of bribery. SFO says Petrofac paid $50m to secure $4.5 billion of work in Iraq & Saudi Arabia from 2012-2015.

A gentle periodic reminder that price comparison websites are not "consumer groups". They've got skin in the game. Entirely fair enough to quote 'em, but please don't represent them as something they're not.

Exactly, it’s wholly subjective depending on your standpoint - clearly bad news if you’re a fracking company/supporter though!

Not sure if the government regards this as burying bad news but, 45 minutes after Ofgem announces the biggest energy price rise in years, BEIS has finally responded to Cuadrilla calls to raise earthquake limits, confirming it has no plans to do so.

Wholesale prices have softened since October. If they stay at present level, we’re heading for a c.£50 drop in the retail cap in October.
