British swimming pools are asking patrons not to shower, and pubs and restaurants across the country have begun lighting candles instead of electric lights.
A month ago, experts from the UK warned London that soon citizens would have to save on food and heating, and this was fraught with numerous rallies and riots. Apparently, the forecasts of economists have already begun to come true.
English business has calculated that in the coming months electricity will rise in price by more than 500%, and this may become an unbearable burden.
“We are returning to 1753, when it opened (pub. — Note. ed.) The Masons Arms,” the owner of this drinking establishment told reporters. The Independent.
One day a week, the pub turns off the electric lights and uses candles to help cut energy bills, he says.
