British fracking support falls

Support for shale gas was at a high of 58% in July 2012, which slumped to 54% last September and 53.3% this January, the long-running survey by YouGov for the University of Nottingham shows.

Last week, the Tory peer Lord Howell, who is chancellor George Osborne’s father-in-law and who caused a furore last year when he said fracking should take place in the “desolate” north-east, warned that fracking could cost the Conservative party electorally.

We are rather fond of our bit of the north east of England … and hope that it is not sacrificed.
