Double attack on Conservative manifesto fracking promises

A former Conservative parliamentary candidate and leading establishment figure has condemned the Tory manifesto pledges in support of fracking.   Sir Richard Storey, a baronet and former High Sheriff and Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, said the Conservative’s policy would result in what he called “an unfettered frenzy of fracking”, “industrialising rural England”.                                                                                             The Conservative proposals have also been described by investigator Paul Mobbs as “a sharp break in British planning and environmental policy of a scale not seen since the 1980s”. He said it could open the UK equivalent of the US “Halliburton Loophole”.
