UK - Full tilt for fracking says Tory Govt.

Fracking support falls as Tory government promises to 'deliver shale'

Conservatives pledge to drive through fracking projects, including under national parks – despite public opposition rising from 29% to 43% in the last 18 months, according to a YouGov pol. (They had previously said that they would stop at the perimeter of a national park, but hey, who cares now ).

Read the full report here.....................

Footnote. Most voters supported other parties, not the Conservatives. ... In reality, under the UK's first-past-the-post electoral system, winning a majority of seats does not mean that the majority of people support you. ... 63% opted for other parties. ... Only 24% of those eligible to vote actually put a cross next to a Tory .
