The Labour Party has failed to deliver on its promises to deliver green and cheap energy to Britain's households, it has been claimed.
That is according to the Green Party, which has argued that not enough has been done over the past 13 years to enable households to benefit from power that is both affordable and environmentally sustainable.
Speaking as the party gears up for the upcoming election, in which it is tipped to win at least one seat in the House of Commons, a spokesperson maintained that Labour's latest environmental pledges are little more than 'greenwash'.
In particular, the Greens have argued that Labour's plans to help low-income pensioners pay for their utilities is misguided, with a more proactive step needed to help pensioners benefit from cheap energy.
"What pensioners need is homes that are easier to keep warm," the spokesman explained.
"The Green Party wants to prioritise pensioners and those in fuel poverty in a £4bn-a-year home insulation plan that would cut the fuel usage of almost every home in the UK and sustain 80,000 jobs in the process."
As part of its election manifesto, the Green Party has outlined plans to introduce tax rises to raise the £73 billion needed to realise its economic, social and environmental ambitions.
