I don't really know where they stand on Brexit.  "Get a good deal" isn't really a stance.

It’s the stance the Tories have taken for the last three years.

Has the Patron Saint of the Islington Allotment Society done anything of note in the last couple of weeks / months / since the last election?

He went to speak to fracking protesters near Blackpool - ignoring several public and private invitations from Cuadrilla to actually come on site and take a look around to see how "dangerous" it is as he claims.

Another shot in the foot for him because many locals are sick of these protesters blocking the road.

I would say that the minority of locals who are complaining about the protesters are very likely to be Conservative voters anyway.

 

We have recently had a number of days where the grid has been powered exclusively by non fossil fuel produced electricity. Fracking, like coal burning, should remain firmly in the past.

 

Corbyn is right to support the local people and not the private companies trying to exploit this method of fossil fuel production.

Since when is natural gas not a fossil fuel?

Since never, given that natural gas has always been a fossil fuel.

Take a trip to Woodsetts or Marsh Lane to see how popular fracking is.

I think you may have to revisit the source of your misguided statement.

 

Here is the only fact I can find.  "Britain records first coal-free week since the Victorian era, thanks to gas, nuclear power and renewables"

Sadly, TCH doesn't seem to check his posts as much as he used to, just like his claim that "the minority of locals who are complaining about the protesters are very likely to be Conservative voters anyway." without any evidence to back it up.  The people I know who commute between Blackpool and Preston on that road certainly aren't Tories.

 

Anyway, in other news, nice to see Labour support collapsing even further in the recent by-election.

Lord give me strength.

 

The locals don’t want fracking just so they can have the road unblocked.

 

Idiotic
