Mark Steel has a fair and moderate solution to the one-off ‘windfall energy tax’ idea – “The government tells us it wouldn’t make sense to impose a one-off tax on the energy companies, as this would be a short-term measure that fails to address the long-term problem. And, to be fair, there’s a logic to this. So, a decent compromise that might get round this difficulty would be to impose a tax on the pigs EVERY year, or if that still didn’t sort it, every week – or maybe every 25 minutes.”
