Fracking - A Social Licence

Benefitz Betty's picture

Whilst the KM8 fracking fraternity  await the Rt Hon Greg Clark's final approval for Third Energy's frack, it did strike it would be quite amusing if this was turned down, given the lengths Third have gone to to be first.

Whilst JC may welcome the snap decision to change rules and to be voted on by Parliament tomorrow, perhaps enshrining his place at the top table for a further seven years as 'opposition' leader ...

Fracking - Jurassics

Benefitz Betty's picture

The 'fracking' presentation hosted by SBC on the 21st November open to the public was an invitation not to be missed. Frack Free Scarborough were in good form and expectations of  a pitch by a Cuadrilla,  INEOS or  any T-Rex 'fracking'  team were dashed when, the mysterious 'surprise'  presenter turned out to be the NYMNPA Director of Development, Mark Hill.    

Why Am I here? he asked.

In the words of Third Energy's OD,  John Dewar 'The Truth Will Out' believed to be ascribed to Winston, "A lie will gallop halfway round the world before the truth has time to pull its breeches on'.

Top 'Twonks' - Stashed & Slashed

Benefitz Betty's picture

We don't have to look far to find Members of the Government's 'Twonks', 'Tories' or 'Nasti Party' who are all too willing to support Slasher Osborne and his version of Austerity measures that punish the most poor and vulnerable.

It might only be £30 per week ...

NYMNPA - 'Fracking' Updates

Mortal Mindy's picture

NYMNPA have updated their 'fracking' page:

"The NPA welcomes the Government’s intention to prohibit any surface development required for hydraulic fracturing within National Parks as this increases the protection afforded to these special areas (DECC Consultation 4 Nov 2015). However, the Regulations voted on today (16 December 2015) which allow fracking to occur below 1200m from drilling outside the boundary of a National Park undermine this intention and indeed the legislation protecting these areas, which do not stop at a certain depth below the surface.

Puss in Boots

Raincliffe Woods lies on the outskirts and sits between Scarborough and the National Park. 

Both Raincliffe School and Graham School former pupils may recall the seasonal physical education 'Fell Run' exertion with a short pound to and around Throxenby Mere and for many young 'braves', including 'Frogger Hall',  the 'optional' scramble exhausting climb up the steep wooded pathway aided by the gripping trunks, upended roots and grasping branches leading to the top of Row Brow offered an escape.  A hundred metre sprint or amble along the top meadow to the 'gate'.
