John Gummer ( now styled Lord Deben ) has declared that he considers that many Green 'activists' are close to being Trotskyites. Well John, we do consider that the majority of fracking enthusiasts are quite close to being.............. Conservatives!!!
Read here exactly how he presents his loony notion: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jan/20/fracking-lord-deben-climate-change
Remember ( if wondering about the accuracy or otherwise of this pearl of wisdom) that this is the man who also thought it a good idea to feed a beefburger to his 4 year old daughter at the height of the UK's Mad Cow Disease :http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/369625.stm
Note the continuing trend in Grand Bretagne to label the thinking opposition to anything of a money-grabbing, anti-environmental and generally irresponsible nature as 'activist', 'Green', 'Eco-Terrorist' and now.....'Trotskyist'. Of course, they know full well that many in the UK ( too many ) seldom think beyond their soundbite jibes and take on board everything they say. Depressing.
