09-09-2009 16:10Edelmen UK are trying to get public support for E-On's new coal powered poer station at Kingsnorth. They are also manipulatig the media (not that they would have to try too hard!) to try and get positive articles in the press relating to the proposed new power station.
Remember Its not built yet and it never will be if we stand up in defence of the earth! Contact them and ask the to stop helping E-On!
09-09-2009 15:49E-on are paying Scott Wilson to help push their plans for kingsnorth and to try and make E-on look a better company. To build something like a new powerstation a company has to carry out lots of research and it would appear that they have been using scott wilson to do this. If they can't carry out all the assesments they can't build Kingsnorth.
There is no way that scott wilson have the intrest of the enviroment or locals at heart, all they care about is the money they are being paid by kingsnorth.
Contact them and ask them to stop helping towards the planning and construction of Kingsnorth!

We must be relentless in our campaign as we are fighting for all life current and future.
