Tory Frackers: Crackpot Croquet Critique

Ed Davey has waded into to the fractious debate over whether the UK  should invest in drilling for natural gas with all guns blazing, telling those in favour of cheap energy bills to frack off. Davey has labelled the Tories “frack-baby-frackers” who would “frack every bit of croquet lawn if they possibly could“. Well at least it’s not just the north now…

Speaking in an interview with Carbon Briefthe Energy and Climate Change Secretary made clear that he doesn’t believe hydraulic fracturing will boost the economy or reduce energy prices:

“I think they’re crazy. I mean, you know, they make these ridiculous ideas, not backed by any evidence, that something [fracking] will transform the British economy and massively reduce prices. No evidence for that, whatsoever.”

Perhaps he should take a look at the US…

Marc Almond on Emma Thompson…

“Emma Thompson has arrived in her gas guzzling carbon footprint stomping jet to serve Vegan food from the boat parked on Oxford Circus while the Yoga classes are taking place on Waterloo Bridge! Haha really? Couldn’t make this stuff up.”
