Fracking the Sussex Ouse: Greed and corruption?

Interesting article. The fracking issue throws a sharp light on how self-interest, power and greed works against the greater good to corrupt democracy. Even down to local politics.

How can Guildford District Councillor Nick Sutcliffe be the Lead Councillor for Environmental Services and also be a lobbyist for Quadrilla? Surely this is not right.

The entire drive for fracking appears as some sort of greed-driven mass psychosis. Seriously considering this method as viable smacks of desperation. As Dr Paul Hezler of the NY Dept of Environmental Conservation states:

"If you were looking for a way of poisoning the water supply you could not find a more chillingly effective and thorough method of doing so than with Hydraulic Fracturing."

Quadrilla simply cannot be allowed to drill at the head of the Sussex Ouse, the source of our drinking water.

Ah, but it's quite safe, you know. It only causes small earthquakes, no structural damage. {sigh}

Which neatly sidesteps the issue of introducing poisonous chemicals at extremely high pressure into the rock substrata not far from the source of our drinking water... and with every possibility that the two will meet.

It is a dangerous madness.

It's an environmental crime and shouldn't be allowed! Just shows that the Tories dont care about the environment or indeed the public!

No prizes for guessing which party the corrupt and two-faced Guildford District Councillor Nick Sutcliffe belongs to.
