The trend is also away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy, both for environmental reasons and for energy security, precisely because bad actors such as Mr Putin can potentially interrupt the supply as a form of economic sanction. Any genuine actions from Mr Putin to punish Britain by curbing energy supplies would be noted by the rest of Russia's customer base and would add impetus to a trend which already exists.

Default Tragedy from 1970

I've pieced this together from a blog and a newspaper article. The Wichita State vs Marshall game yesterday brought up some tragic facts, embodied in the now head coach of the 'Thundering Herd'. Because of the 2006 film 'We Are Marshall', many are familiar with what happened to the school's basketball team back on November 14th, 1970. But earlier that year, on 02 October, Dan D'Antoni, then a 23-year-old graduate student and assistant basketball coach at Marshall, was where he always was - at the Huntington, W. Va., home of close friend, mentor and Marshall team doctor.
Hagley often traveled with the Thundering Herd on similar charter flights, giving the tragedy a personal impact.
“I can still remember Doc saying, 'That crash will tear everyone apart,’” D’Antoni said. “What a nightmare. We’re sitting here, but we have no idea what kind of tragedy that is for a community.’ “
Just six weeks later, tragedy hit Huntington. Marshall endured its own immeasurable nightmare. “Like the commercial says — 'Life comes at you fast,’” he said, forcing a smile. A Southern Airlines DC-9 charter carrying 70 people — Marshall players, coaches, staff and boosters and a flight crew of five — came in far too low on its landing approach in rainy and foggy weather and crashed into a Wayne County hillside. The plane hit nose-first, killing everyone aboard — the single worst air tragedy in NCAA sports history.
D’Antoni knew almost everyone who perished. Star quarterback Ted Shoebridge was his best friend. Kicker Marcelo Lajterman was dating the sister of his wife, Alice. Coach Rick Tolley, who turned around the sad football program after a three-year, 27-game losing streak, was D’Antoni’s longtime neighbor in Mullens, W. Va., and coached him in baseball.
But Ray and Shirley Hagley were by far the hardest losses. “Dan was just devastated,” brother Mike D’Antoni said. “You can’t describe how much. There is numbness, a defense mechanism in all of us for something like that and you shut down. And Dan needed to — to be so young and to lose so much.”
Ray and Dan had become fast friends when D’Antoni was a point guard on the varsity basketball team, leading Marshall to a pair of NIT appearances. “Doc was my big brother,” Dan D’Antoni said. “He was only (34), but I saw him as older. He took a lot of interest in me.”
D’Antoni lived in a small apartment above the Hagleys’ garage, had the run of the house and never missed one of Shirley’s home-cooked meals with the family’s six children.
Hagley bought him his first TV. When he graduated, Hagley signed a note for his first car, a green Buick Skylark convertible, and helped get D’Antoni the freshman basketball coaching job at Marshall. His backyard basketball court served as the site for two D’Antoni basketball camps — by then, Mike was a freshman basketball player at Marshall.
“Everyone has that one person you connect with, and for Danny it was Doc,” said Kathy D’Antoni, Dan and Mike’s sister. “He was a mentor to Danny, and he saw a lot of himself in him. They would have done anything for each other.”
When D’Antoni married Alice after a one-month courtship, Hagley moved the couple from the garage apartment to a bigger one above his doctor’s office. And when the Hagleys jumped on the ill-fated plane to attend Marshall’s football game at East Carolina, the newlyweds were the natural choice to watch over the children.
The evening of Oct. 14, a college football game was interrupted by a TV news bulletin. D’Antoni immediately felt a surge of despair. “Then I heard it was a Southern charter … it took (the press) another 30 minutes, but I already knew,” he said.

Sorry Mal, but that may be doubted.

Despite this Reuters article beeing already 3 years old, it is still up-to-date with today's reality. Contracts are contracts in the business world. In-house British resources are almost exhausted and Norwegian capacities can not be increased any further. Fact is the UK is progressively dependent on Russian supplies to ensure its future energy security.

Of course, you are free to switch to more expensive US resources. Let's see what your Ministry of Economics says about this topic.

To change the subject for an instant - this bridge that collapsed in Florida didn't anyone question the speed at which it was erected? Surely, if you build a bridge or walkway in under a week(I think it was) you would question the rigidity and whether that sort of structure is safe or not!

They replaced the railway bridge across Dalston Lane in East London in 2015. The station platform is on top of the bridge and the road goes under it. I expect you are familiar with the road and the bridge, GM.

The old bridge was removed and the new bridge was installed from pre-fabricated units in less than 48 hours to fit it in over a weekend and not cause rush hour chaos. So far, the new bridge appears to be doing exactly what it said on the tin.

Err no I am Norf Lunnun not East mate, but I'd bet on British engineering lasting a lot longer than US but it seems to me that something erected that quick must be thoroughly checked so I reckon either corners were cut OR they didn't check it properly.
