I think it is an absolute disaster that a slew of foreign companies are being allowed to come and experiment in the English countryside with a highly controversial technology that our government claims to be safe even though the very first attempts at fracking in this country have been linked to earthquakes in that area.

David Cameron came to power pledging to lead the greenest government ever yet has recently place a moratorium on further onshore wind turbine projects. I

t’s time to give people the choice through a referendum.

If the people of this country vote to have it fracked then so be it. Until then, no government, national or local, has a mandate to allow fracking to proceed.
