Gavin Williamson is right: Britain’s energy supply is threatened by Russia

Gavin Williamson is right to warn about the Russian threat to Britain’s energy supply, writes Tony Lodge, CPS research fellow, in The Spectator.

In his 2017 report “The Hidden Wiring” Lodge highlighted the dangers of the UK increasing energy imports from Europe rather than increasing generation capacity at home. Importing increasing amounts of energy means Britain’s supply becomes vulnerable to distruptions we cannot control; including interference from Russia as suggested by the Defence Secretary earlier this week.
