Fracking (or not)

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-23515012

 

There's a company about to drill for oil.  That's what their licence grants them.

 

The protesters are protesting about fracking - which the company don't have a licence for yet, and haven't even applied for.

 

 

I think it's marvellous that those protester's employers have given them the time off to protest.

I loved the bit where a reported asked a female protester what fracking was, she replied, ''I* don't know, I'm just here because it is wrong and dangerous, it could cause an earthquake''.  He asked her who told her that, she replied,

''My boyfriend her is a Zoologist he knows all about it''.

Cuadrilla are awesomely brave choosing a company name which sounds like an earth-destroying, science fiction monster. I wonder who does their PR?

The protesters and the Lord Howell do not clearly understand the principals behind what is happening. Gas producing shale is not everywhere underground and there is no indication that there is any in Sussex. There has been oil exploration before in Sussex, not a hundred miles from Chichester, so that is nothing new. The quantities I believe are/were only just viable.

 

It is not helped by one of the links stating that they are to search for Shale gas near Balcome, all from the Ministry of Miss-information

 

As for the noble Lord Howell, he has made it abundantly clearl he does not know the north. Plenty of good solid rock and there are not many folk (I like it that way) but there is nothing to say that oil or gas is there in any quantity to be grabbed.

Lord Howell is the father in law of George Osbourne. You can imagine the conversations around their dinner table. No wonder the North is in such a state when you have people like this making decisions on their future. They probably think the North is still full of coal mines, ship yards and everybody has a whippet and wears a cloth, flat cap.

 

Complete ignorance on his part. The North is the best part of the country. It is scenic, cultured and the people are the most welcoming you will ever come across.

Do you mean a 3 pints of Special Brew and a whiskey chaser type of fit? Or even a paper bag type of fit?
