Biscathorpe - Don’t be fooled by oil well plan

Share this article

With the headline reading “Biscathorpe Oil Well Proposal Is Exhibited” and a further note written underneath informing us the reader that”Residents Have Their Say at Exhibition on Amended Oil Well Plan,” surely must have had the reporter Chloe West grinning from ear to ear.

Because when this watered down effort by the company Egdon Resources UK to try again in appeasing those who at the first attempt shook their heads in a big NO. No, now seems to be all forgotten?

And if one has read their history books you will find in the not too dissimilar certain circumstances that the people who now shake their heads in agreement with these new proposals are very much like a certain Prime Minister when returning from Germany waved a white sheet of paper in the air claiming all was “tickety-boo.”

So, don’t be fooled into that sucker punch, because if these people at Egdon Resources get their way into applying a full application from the council and claim that their work could continue for the next 10 to 15 years.

Then all you who now say ‘yea’ to this mad cap scheme, had better think again and clue up those little grey cells of yours and look across the pond to the USA ad the shear devastation this has caused with their own search for oil and gas in the name of fracking.

For at the end of the day, just because you don’t see the deleted word fracking, doesn’t mean one jot that this environmental destroyer will not be used, and if one is still not convinced at these dangers, look to our European cousins in Germany and France and ask them, why they do not frack in their own countries?
