European Union’s Lies About Fossil Fuel Subsidies – It’s Just Lower VAT On Household Energy Bills

The European Union has a report out telling us that the UK provides more fossil fuels subsidies than anywhere else. This is nonsense nonsense amounting to a lie. But then when did something like that ever stop The Guardian? Or the EU for that matter:
