Killer winter

Scottish clerics complain of the large number of elderly ­parishioners who in winter spend the morning in bed to keep warm before getting up to sit in front of a one-bar fire.

Last winter was relatively mild but still 24,000 perished and this year’s brutal monster is likely to claim around 40,000 lives, making it one of the biggest killers in the country.

Instead of being mortified, the government warbles on about the greenness of costly wind power when all that matters to our vulnerable elderly is price and reliability.
