ENERGY is expensive and the supply is not assured forever, so let’s go fracking and provide cheaper fuel as has happened in the USA.

Throughout history anything new has created fear and opposition, but progress has continued and the establishment will always get its own way.

I remember all the marches and attempts to block roads to stop things happening.

But it was all a waste of time. I have personally marched but without success.

On fracking, when we get earthquakes and fouled water supplies we can, at least, say “We told you so”.

Although this will not give us any satisfaction.
