Meet the Greens’ Pro-Fracking Parliamentary Candidate

michelle palmer

The Greens are fielding a pro-fracking parliamentary candidate for Ellesmere Port and Neston. Despite the party’s avowed opposition to fracking, they are putting forward Michelle Palmer to fight their corner in shale-rich Cheshire.

Palmer has just taken on a job at world class fracking research centre Thornton Science Park which was established as part of a government strategy to reassure people that hydraulic fracturing is safe. She is working directly for Professors Joe Howe and Philip Leigh who have worked extensively to promote the shale gas industry because they believe it is  important for increasing energy security and reducing fuel poverty.

Sound.

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.”
