The Greens are sailing along as the only party to offer opposition to the gas-drilling abomination.
Well might their vote be rising.
Tim Farron has spotted the weakness in the Lib Dem platform and wants to break ranks on this with Clegg.
Why do commenters on politicalbetting not realise that this is the key to understanding the collapsing Conservative/Labour/Lib Dem vote? And the failure of UKIP to punch through with Roger Helmer hard-glued to this insanity?
Are the others going to allow the Environmental fascistic Green Party to rampage all the way to the GE using anti-fracking as their sure-fire vote-winner?
Lib Dem President Tim Farron warns fracking could harm countryside ‘for decades’
A new political row has broken out over the Coalition’s support for shale gas fracking, with a high-ranking Liberal Democrat warning that the process risks “damaging the countryside” for decades.
UKIP have missed their moment. Tim Farron’s lining up to grab this political opportunity, and he’s currently the number one bet to be Nick Clegg’s successor. If Farron were to be a bit cheeky and declare a personal anti-fracking policy, he might see Lib Dem support start climbing once more.http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/dec/09/shale-gas-drilling-epa-fracking-water-contamination
