Friday : 1 short pro fracking letter
2 long anti fracking letters , both claiming Third Energy is financially weak so the setup should have never started.
..Then shouting it's backed by Barclay's Bank
That rather contradicts their first point.

Todays letters 2 non-antifracking
#2 Asked if the antifrackers abandoned camp would be restored and lamented that the pallets could habeen used for new local affordable homes.
#1 long letter complaining that fracking sites are misrepresented as industrialisation when from what he's seen in the States all they are are pipes sticking out the ground.

He then blew it by claiming WRONGKY that plastic is not made from gas.

big article : Planning inspector says there's no justification for North Yorks Councils rule tht a fracking site cannot be within 500m of a fracking site

Once a wells set up it's practically invisible hence in California oil/gas wells can be quite close to buildings

Friday :YP's main leader
'Gas Company should pay policing costs"
... emm that's not it works
.. Society pays the costs of policing CorbyThugs
.. It is not upto the targeted businesses to pay.

.. If there is a demo against grooming gangs , the police don't bill the local kebab shop owners.

stewgreen, I have not seen the article you refer to, but ...... if there is a demonstration against the Yorkshire Post concerning any of their articles, or policies, whether correct or incorrect, the Yorkshire Post is accepting responsibility for the cost of Policing any demonstrations, even if incited into violence by those from elsewhere, and any damage caused by the demonstrators. Yes? No? !?!

Monday "Government keeps Fracking Report Secret"
says some info released under FOI implied fracking rigs would be less numerous than predicted

Ah it quotes Greenpeace Journalism Unit ie it was probably written by them

It's also the YP's leader article
