Vox Political: Labour Forces Tories to Regulate Fracking

Frack Cameron: In advance of a new bill to allow fracking under private homes, Greenpeace did this to David Cameron's Chipping Norton home. Fair comment?

Mike over at Vox Political reports in the piece Fracking u-turn is both humilation for the Coalition and a victory for common sense, that Labour has forced the Coalition into passing their amendment demanding strong legislation regulating fracking. Among the recommendations Labour has made, is that fracking, or shale gas extraction, should be outlawed completely in national parks. Mike states that this is a humiliation for the government, who wished the industry to be completely unregulated. If the Coalition had their way, the petrochemical companies would have the complete freedom to extract it wherever they liked, including under the houses of private citizens. This means that their right to a quick buck trashes your rights to the safety and integrity of your home and private property.
