Hippies Using Gas to Power Anti-Gas Extraction Protest

Anti-Frackers “No Dash For Gas” have set up their circle of moaning near Blackpool:

Guess what they are using to stay warm and cook? No dash for consistency… 

Meanwhile, 55 local businesses in the area have sent the hippies a postcard:

Local capitalists V hypocritical trustafarians. Tough one…

    Just pay residents for the gas that comes out beneath their land. Opposition will soon fade.
    Until that point it’s perfectly rational to oppose it. What is the plan for all the waste products generated by tracking? Pile them up in mountains like they do in the US with all the spare land we have at our disposal?

    as a homeowing resident on the fylde I welcome them here, take the time to learn about fracking and its consequences it will be a environmental disaster and all of us will be left the bill to clean it up. notice you are running an advert to buy your home fracking under your home could have a serious impact on its value.

    Too many tourists in brighton at this time of year that’s why they have gone north plus I think thier was the v festival up north so easy to get too. What you want is to ask the local health and safety officer to check they are using and storing the gas bottles safely, that should get them worried. The problems of multiple commercial size gas bottles and proper storage facilities etc.

    Does anyone seriously trust our dodgy, spineless MPs’, [all parties] ?

    Why should we entrust them to make the right decisions over something as fundamental as the water supply and environmental protection ?

    Their judgement was criminally poor when filling out their tax claims/lies because money was involved. There is a lot more money to be made from supporting fracking.

    ‘Our’ politicians have repeatedly shown their focus is on short-term, personal gain. No point in saying 20 years down the line when there is widespread health and environmental damage : “We told you so!”

    Politicians are typically much thicker than your average guy on the street but they talk with authority and entitlement – and you just know they are going to cock up massively with this fracking licensing and regulation.

    That is a good idea the only problem would be that cesspit called London would want a lot of that lovely gas. If it is such a good idea why not frack all round London then London could be self supporting for gas even frack in all those leafy suburbs where most of the Tory MPs have their constituencies and of course in leafy and salty Cheshire where a lot of Tory support comes from. Where I live, they are extracting methane from old mine workings, and burning it off, there was an old pithead a couple of miles away and some kids decided to experiment by dropping a match down the vent, a small explosion then occurred.

    I agree to some extent. It’s UKIP’s policy in favour of Fracking. I’m a DEMOCRAT first, and a UKIP’er Second. My Local Labour Council has already granted rights for Fracking without ANY Public Consultation. As for your “Not in our name” quote, it still didn’t stop the fucktards from Voting Labour again did it?(AKA, continue backing a War Criminal).

    BTW, how many Strikes have happened in non-Public businesses in the last 10 years? Why is it that ONLY Publicly Owned departments suffer from this? Are they immune to the idea that ‘If you don’t like your job/conditions/wages, then find another fking job’?

    I believe it is perfectly acceptable for “these people” to demonstrate against the potential of new gas discoveries whilst simultaneously making perfectly legitimate use of that selfsame gas to keep themselves fed , watered and heated in a manner to which their benefit entitlements have allowed them to become accustomed.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
