Queen’s Speech leaked. Fracking to be permitted on private land without permission of landowners.

UPDATE – what actually happened.  Was the RT leak an overstatement designed to wrongfoot opposition?  What with the ‘luvvies’ managed opposition operation in full swing, I would say it was. The trespass to be made legal are the current underground trespass rues.  Overground trespass laws remain in place — for now.

Fracking on private land to be permitted in Queen’s speech – leak

An infrastructure and competitiveness bill to be announced in the Queen’s speech on Wednesday will change trespassing laws, allowing shale gas exploration firms to drill on private land without requiring the permission of the owner, UK media report.
The Queens speech marks the formal start of the parliamentary year and sets the proposed government agenda for the session, which will run from June 4. On Sunday, British media started leaking the contents of this year’s address, its topics varying from fracking to a “radical shake-up of workplace pensions.”


The fracking bill will allow companies to drill on private property without asking permission through reform of trespassing laws, according to ITV.
Shale gas extraction is not really popular with affected communities. Manchester saw hundreds rally in March demanding to ban the practice. Environmental activists are strongly opposed to the technique, which has already been proven to cause small earthquakes in the US. A number of studies have alsorevealed water pollution, and the practice has also been linked to health problems, including birth defects in unborn infants in the US.
Green Party leader Natalie Bennett stated that the Government was ‘focusing on the fantasy of fracking.’
“We’re obviously opposed to that because we’re opposed to the whole idea of fracking. I think it’s really a demonstration of how this Government – which we might recall once claimed to be the greenest Government ever, which is now a very sad, sick joke,” Bennett Told Sky News’ Murnaghan program after hearing the news.
A leading fracking company has previously made statements saying that the industry will be completely crushed in the UK if government doesn’t allow it to drill under people’s private property without their permission.

Cuadrilla chief executive Francis Egan told The Times it would be ‘impractical’ to negotiate with every individual landowner.

    I understand police investigations have to be careful what information they release to the media… but!

    UK’s potential serial killer, Christopher Halliwell (this has been on going for a number of years)

    – PUBLICALLY REALEASED number of potential number of victims since 1996 – Six

    -PRIVATELY amongst different investigating officers. ????
    -‘potential offending period of more than 30 years’.
    -First talked of serial killing in 84. Released in 88.
    -The methodical and forensically expert manner in which the first known victim(in Wilts area), Becky Godden-Edwards, was murdered (reported missing in 07) would indicate he may have had a history of killing.
    -Halliwell could not remember the year he killed Becky Godden-Edwards (03, 04 or 05). This would indicate she was not his first victim. (one of potentially many)
    -First potential victim (Melanie Hall) in (again in Wilts area) 1996.
    -The fact he owned over 80 cabs, across Britain.
    -Worked across Britain driving cabs. Worked in construction. Holidayed across Britain in his narrow boat.
    “We know he travelled all over the country working as a driver, or in the construction industry, and we are also looking at where he took his holidays on his narrow boat. He could have left victims anywhere in the UK.

    “There is evidence from the way he disposed of Becky’s body, with all clothing and jewellery removed, that he was very forensically aware. Books on forensics were found in his loft.”

    ”Halliwell regularly spent time alone in his own narrow boat on the Kennet and Avon canal, which he has since sold.

    Almost no evidence of Halliwell’s forensic “footprint” could be found in the home he shared with his 55-year-old ex-lover.

    A source said: “It was as if he didn’t live there. It leads us to ask if he has some other premises, a lock-up or similar, somewhere else, which does contain his life and – horrifically – maybe trophies of his victims.”

    I have got a sickening gut feeling (and I know a number of investigating officers will share this)… This may only be the tip of the iceberg. I sincerely hope this investigation is being co-ordinated properly, and information is being shared across the country. The man is a textbook psychopath. Friendly, charming, able to extract information from his potential victims, meaning he only killed those he knew would not be reported missing, or had personal problems. Had a wife and family, who had no idea.
    This could be horrific… he’s refusing to give any information unless he has to. He hasn’t killed for fame or notoriety, or to play games with law enforcement… he’s done it out necessity, to satisfy his own urges. Sadly, the number of victims may never be known.

    They are no use at all, liars to boot.

    Now Benedict, Beatrix & Juan Carlos have abdicated, does anyone know the odds on Betty? She’s certainly not going to want any splatter hit her when the stinky brown stuff hits the whizzy-whirring thing.
