The Government’s line on fracking

A local member has written to her Member of Parliament, Louise Ellman, expressing her objections to fracking. Ms Ellman duly sent her the official Government reply, signed by Claire Perry, Minister of State. It included a list of ten ‘myths’ and ‘facts’ about fracking.

You can read the ‘myths’ and ‘facts’ here. You may also like to read Frack Free Formby's response. Friends of the Earth has published a rebuttal.

Anna commented: ‘Fact: I’m sickened by what passes for information in public discourse these days.’

In similar vein, Jonathan Clatworthy has written a blog post on the Government’s misuse of the term ‘fact’.
