David Cameron plans to push through a new fracking law so fracking companies can drill under our homes without permission. Cameron’s plans are pretty unpopular already – 74% of British people don’t agree with changing the law so in our so called ‘democracy’ popular opinion and voice of the people is supposed outweigh the voice of the powerful and wealthy few right?
Well it seems that a small action such as signing a petition can go far enough to make your MPs aware how unpopular it is, because they’re supposed to represent ‘you’ in parliament and vote for or against on your behalf.
Were you aware that under this proposed FRACKING law, David Cameron can pay councillors, communities and local authorities to persuade their constituencies to allow FRACKING?
This what’s known as lobbying in the United States of America, and if such things were to happen in Britain god help us all. Where will the voice of the many be then, probably silenced by a large sum of money plugging the ears of your local MPs whilst duck taping a cheque over your mouth.
This is a travesty, people wonder why sink holes happen overseas -there may not be a direct link but I wouldn’t like anyone threatening the stability of mine or anyone else’s home for them to simply find a loophole that shifts the blame afterwards. Who will subsidise my water bill when the price of water goes up, will the water from the tap be safe to use during a torrid time of contamination?
Whether these measures are down to Scotland wanting independence and having access to offshore fuels, it still doesn’t warrant the right for Cameron to go gung-Ho changing laws, why not maintain a relationship with their neighbours rather than put lives at risk as well as the beautiful environment?
Makes you wonder whether all the smut in the media is there to distract you from the inconvenient truth…
Conglomerates, corporations, governments and the wealthy few are ruining the world as each hour passes in the name of greed, when’s it going to stop?
