The EU added A+, A++ (and even A+++ for some items) energy efficiency categories for various products as more efficient technologies emerged that outperformed the original A rating. They're now attempting to reclassify the system, falling back to a simpler A to G rating. It's going to cause lots of confusion though, because a bulb previously categorized as A++, is now categorized as C under the new system.

Simpler EU energy labels for lighting products applicable from 1 September 2021 - official EU website

Wikipedia entry covering labels for fridges, televisions, etc. (but not up to date on light bulbs)

The YouGov poll showed residents of the UK were multiple times more likely to have experienced, or to know people who have experienced, shortages of food and fuel than people in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Sweden and Denmark, and somewhat more likely to have experienced them than those in the US.

The penny-drop sounded a lot like genuine, sincere laughter, and it legit made me giddy. The laugh could just as easily have been spiteful or bitter, but it somehow sounded downright delightful, as if the man laughing is just completely done with fucking clown show.

Boris put in some good words for Peppa Pig, but she's too young and not a Tory MP. Priti Patel has the same initials. Or we could get Sunak, or Zafari, or Javid.
