Starmer: Govt windfall tax U-turn inevitable, get on with it

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer says a government U-turn on a windfall tax on energy companies is "inevitable" and the fact that Prime Minister Boris Johnson continues to "dither" shows that he does not "get" how serious the current cost of living crisis is for most people.

He claims the PM is "choosing" to let people struggle when he does not need to.
