The owner of a small coffee shop in Westmeath, Ireland, posted his one-month electricity bill online for all to see: € 9,836.92
He asks, rhetorically in his public posting "in the name of God, how is this possible?"
Well, it's possible because YOUR GOVERNMENT imposed economic sanctions upon Russia, and refuses to allow the purchase of Russian natural gas.
So that caused gas and electric companies in YOUR country, to have to find somewhere else to buy natural gas.
Trouble is, all the other places that sell the gas, also sell it to other countries in the world, and with the new demand to supply YOUR country, the laws of supply-and-demand kicked in, making it that much more expensive for YOUR country to get any gas.
The electric companies need gas to generate steam, to turn the turbines that make your electricity. So THEY have to now pay extreme prices to get that gas, and YOU now have to pay extreme prices for electric.
This trouble is caused directly - and exclusively -- by YOUR government.
The people YOU elected, are to blame. Personally!
Maybe this business owner should head over to the offices of his elected officials and tell them to stop minding Ukraine's business, and remove the sanctions against Russia?
Because if they do not remove those sanctions, YOUR electric bill is going to keep going up until YOU are out of business.
Is THAT what you elected you government to do to you?
