One Year Ago

Early Saturday 14th April 2013 Scarborough Town was locked down with all roads and footpaths leading to the Seafront heavily guarded by Police.  I remember it well.  It was the first bright sunny morning for a long time.  A few early morning workers had gathered beyond the police cordon. The police were silent.  The only comment from them  being " a very serious incident".  Whispers of two bodies, teenagers, a boy and a girl. Hacked to death. Instinctively I reached for my phone to desperately call my teenager  'answer the fucking phone' I gasped, and despite the early hour, did.

There must be very few people who haven’t heard something about ‘fracking’ or, to give it its full name, ‘hydraulic fracturing’.

Fracking is heralded by Government, Operators and the mainstream media as ‘nothing new’ as it has been used in oil and gas exploration over several decades. That’s true in relation to fracking but fracking is not shale gas fracking! Opposition, strong opposition, is against the latter not the former. Indeed, Shale Gas Fracking is currently banned in countries such as France and Germany!

A FRESH LOOK AT THE FUTURIST

Since 2001 Scarborough Council (SBC) have been discussing the sale and development of the Futurist site on Foreshore Road. Nestled in the very heart of Scarborough's South Bay the Futurist Theatre represents a thumping part of the traditional aspect of the Tourist experience.
