An English Man’s Home Once upon a Time was His [fracking] Castle

This month I’m a little stuck on what to write about. I don’t possess the energy or inclination to harp onAn English Mans Home - Peter Turner about Europe or this Governments drive for nuclear energy as the aftermath of Fukushima recedes from our individual and collective memory but I do want to discuss "fracking", briefly, and the lies around it to convince us to accept it.

The latter no matter how hard I try similar to the conundrum of whether or not penguins have knees I can’t get my head around when the nuclear plants are going to be French or Chinese financed and owned…please explain.
