Chelsea Mansion of Fracking Lord
Dressed in orange boiler suits and wearing gas masks 6 campaigners from Frack Off London erected a 20ft drilling rig outside the home of Lord Browne to highlight the peer’s involvement in UK unconventional gas development. The government has just announced that they are ending their gentleman’s agreement with Cuadrilla to suspend fracking operations in Lancashire and it could start again in Lancashire within months.
The government has plans to sell off large parts of the country next year for unconventional gas exploitation . The Chancellor, George Osborne, is also expected to announce the setting up of an Office of Shale Gas to expidite the process of fracking the country . The government is also plotting to short circuit local planning proceedures and green-light applications directly from central government, ensuring local communities have no chance to object .
