Ask us first Alistair! (Angela Sutherland)
Scotland can and does already generate more energy than it needs, so to me fracking in Scotland is all about corporate greed.
We all know fracking has been shown to cause CO2 emissions and pollute ground water in the USA, where the public are now successfully working to ban it. Why would we want to risk damage to our land when its not necessary?
MP Alistair Carmichael voted against a temporary ban on issuing licenses for fracking in Westminster last Monday while the Scottish government voted for a halt a few days later.
In what way is Mr Carmichael doing his job as the Secretary of Scotland, representing the will of the Scottish people in Westminster, when he is so often, blatantly, going against our wishes?
Is he incompetent in not finding out our opinion before he votes, or is the “Con Dem” party more important to him than the people who voted for him?
