Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Couple things.

  1.  There is, essentially, no way that an "excess profits" or equivalent tax would have the same impact re the "eco" side of things.

  2.  From what I've seen / heard, we're talking about Royal giving this a broadside and attacking this approach strong for awhile. There is a difference between saying "we should be highly concerned about making sure that this approach will not devastate people while helping us reduce pollution" and trying to score political points without regard to the real impact of the policy. Again, I don't have full details and am being open about it -- but her reaction/play seems to be second rather than first.
