The anti-fracking campaign gets more profile – whatever you make of mainstream politicians claiming credit for their organisations by joining in with street level campaigns. Leaving aside all the complications of the pro-EU Green Party and many of its policies, the anti-fracking movement will be pleased to see Caroline Lucas appear. Never forget that it’s the numbers that turn up that draw mainstream politicians out of their lairs to offer support, not necessarily the cause that is being fought for.
As soon as 10,000 people appear at the anti-fracking protest site, the frack attempt is over. People power is what it’s all about.
