Quite simple. Horses and stable doors come to mind? The word has been out now for a long time now, but so few citizens took the time to really appreciate just what the wider implications of fracking were ( cancers, logistical nightmare, landscape desecration, loss of wildlife habitat, yet another fossil fuel at this crucial time and all in the name of lining the pockets of politicians and 'investors' ), earthquakes, falling house values ++++ ). Hardly surprising of course, when the Murdoch Press and not least the BBC to name but two gave the distinct impression that this was not something to concern the average citizen unless of course the happened to reside 'Up north'. Probably too late and one has to wonder how many of these business leaders were amongst the 24% of those eligible to vote who elected this current bunch of mediocrity? Ed.
