FRACKING IN THANET… NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT?

JANET FROM THANET (WATCH)  SAYS YOU GOTTA BE FRACKING KIDDIN’…

So first they stick a load of windmills in the sea and I say, what’s going on?

And they say, don’t worry about that, don’t worry about it spoiling your view or anything, or putting the tourists off, cos it won’t, and even if it does, it don’t matter, cos it’s for the good of the environment.

And we need the energy.

And the jobs.

And everything’s gonna be great.

So what are they doing two minutes later?

Only saying they’re going to driling bleeding great holes about the place, right next to where all our water comes from.

Yeah, and not a brick’s throw away from where they had two dirty great earthquakes a year or so.

And if you say something about it, they say, don’t worry about that.

Don’t worry about it poisoning your water or causing earthquakes or nothing, cos it won’t.

And even it does, it don’t matter, cos it’s for the good of the environment.

And we need the energy.

And we need the jobs.

And everything’s gonna be great.

And what does that MP, wosser name, Laura Sandys Ezekiel Beaches, say?

Don’t worry, she says, it’s never gonna happen, she says.

Yeah, even though her buddy boss Cameron’s all for it and there’s squillions of squids to be made out of it and she’s a PR spin-person by profession, it’s never gonna happen.

Never.

Uh-oh.
