Council Offers £100k to Explain Away Fracking Decision

frack free lancashire

Lancashire County Council, who against the advise of their own planning officers refused planning permission for two fracking sites this year, are shelling out £100,000 of taxpayer’s money to hire someone who can explain their decision.

In exchange for the ludicrous amount of cash, the person who gets the contract will have three months to come up with a defence of LCC’s reasons for refusing planning permission for one of the fracking sites and present this defence at a public enquiry. Chancers looking to make a quick buck can apply for the job here

“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.”
