Shadow Energy Secretary Talked Up Fracking Last Month

flip-flop-fracking

Labour have found something else to argue about – Shadow Energy Secretary Barry Gardiner today pledges to ban fracking completely if they win the next election:

“Today I am announcing that the next Labour government will ban fracking in the UK. Fracking locks us into an energy infrastructure that is based on fossil fuels, long after our country needs to have moved to renewables.”

Just a month ago Gardiner was talking about how fracking could bring benefits so long as safeguards are met. He said this on August 7:

“Labour recognises that a UK shale gas industry could create a number of jobs and increase the security of our domestic supply”

The GMB union are losing it over the hardening in policy, blasting: “Which henchman, hangman or head-chopper do we want to buy our gas from going forward?” Lights out…

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.”
