Frack Off

We do not even know that the shale gas is there, whereas we do know that about coal. Coal can now be burned cleanly. Mining it employs huge numbers of people, sustaining entire communities. We have vast reserves of it, and the areas that have it need the money, often desperately. None of that applies to fracking.

Between them, domestic coal and civil nuclear power (to which the last Labour Government, for all its faults, was strongly committed, whereas David Cameron called it "a last resort") offer large numbers of well-paid, highly skilled, high-status, unionised jobs, together with independence from Saudi and other oil, from Russian and other gas, and from the coal that we still use, but which we import from child and slave labour that will soon include child and slave labour in North Korea.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it. My crowdfunding page is here, or email for other options. That address accepts PayPal.
