Skinner’s Fracking Smears Debunked Days Ago

At PMQs today Dennis Skinner told the House that INEOS’s fracking activities have caused problems with the Bolsover water supply.

Skinner: Football Abuse Scandal Is About “People Making Money”

An odd contribution even by Skinner’s standards, suggesting child abuse in football is a class issue, and “it’s about the people making money and the Tories know a lot about that”. His doddery argument is that miners don’t touch minors. Jimmy Savile was a Bevin boy…
