Former Prime Minister John Major has intervened in the energy price row by calling for a 33% reduction in the number of pins on UK electric plugs.
"Many other countries get by with only two pins, which must have an impact on the amount of power consumed, yet we in the UK insist on three pins, at a time when prices are soaring. The big five plug manufacturers have got to see sense here."
He continued "My electric razor functions perfectly well on two pins, saving hundreds of pounds. Especially when I had a moustache! Which the press didn't even notice. Edwina liked it though. Anyway I have probably said enough, so goodbye everybody!"
