SNP Westminster leader Stephen Flynn called out the Prime Minister for upgrading the energy grid surrounding his estate to heat his private pool accusing him of “taking a leisurely dip” while preparing to “leave households drowning in their energy expenses”.
It follows news earlier this week that Tory Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had paid to have the local energy infrastructure around his North Yorkshire home updated to handle the demands of his brand-new private pool.
During Prime Minister’s Questions, Flynn probed Sunak about the scandal in advance of the Spring Budget, which may see the Government abandon its practise of giving all households a refund on their energy bills.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
