Walter Mitty CV of Anti-Fracking Candidate

Following yesterday’s revelations that anti-fracking parliamentary candidate Mike Hill once offered his services to gas exploration company Cuadrilla, Guido can reveal today that Hill has a long history of misrepresenting the facts – not least when it comes to claims about his qualifications.

Hill has claimed on a number of occasions to be and expert adviser to the EU, telling a debate at the  University of Canterbury that he was an “expert adviser to the EU Commission on shale gas” and point blank telling a Ryedale District Council meeting “I am an EU Adviser.” Hill is not an EU adviser, he is merely a member of a EU Commission Technical Working Group –  a self described ‘forum for discussion.’ An EU Commission spokesperson recently told IPSO “Mr Hill is not an official EU advisor and not entitled to use such a title”

Hill also claims to have advised both the Royal Society and the Department for Energy and Climate Change:

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
