Praying for a warm Autumn? Kwarteng is branded 'complacent' for suggesting the WEATHER could ease the crisis over gas prices - as boss of collapsed energy firm Green warns big suppliers will soon come 'cap in hand for a bailout'

Kwasi Kwarteng was branded 'shameful' today after he suggested a warm autumn might be the best hope of easing the crisis over gas prices.

Dragged back to be grilled by MPs on the crisis, the Business Secretary stressed the weather is the 'single most important determinant' of costs. The comment came hours after Boris Johnson made a speech at the UN warning of the dangers of climate change.

But he denied the government was 'complacent' about the issues and repeated that there will be no 'reward for failure' bailouts for collapsing energy firms, amid warnings that big suppliers will soon come 'cap in hand' for support.
