    Mosley's title was an hereditary Barony, these were handed out by monarchs since norman times.

    Think it's quite sad they get labelled with their ancestor's title, us plebs dont have to be called an arsehole if our's were.

    A lot of surnames derive from mediaeval jibes and epithets. Shakespeare and Wagstaff were tossers, for instance.

    I don't see any end to this for a while, think Russia know they'll likely only be able to seize part the 2 areas they've targeted, Ukraine won't give them up, Putin can't afford to concede - looks like it will just go on and on.

    time for a profit freeze on energy companies? All western companies to sell gas at cost until the war is over?

    Massively ramp up production in the west?

    Sure, as long as they can just not pay any employees or overhead costs. Sounds like a plan.

    I think that's been the problem, they've had to sell gas at less than cost.:)

    Tbh there is going to have to be some collective thinking. Yes, we may get just 5% of our gas from Russia but other countries,(eg Germany) are still going to have to 'find' gas to cater for demand, so will be shopping in a skinny market like everyone else. That will lead to ramped up prices unless governments take control.

    There must be figures within the industry that have a handle on how much capacity can be ramped up. I think one of the problems is countries lack storage ie you could be taking supply now during the warm months ready for winter.

    A lack of storage is our major problem.

    Apparently we ship gas all over the place in the summer, then pump it back when we need it in the winter. There's certainly a non-zero risk that countries might put an embargo on pumping gas across borders when they get desperate.
