  1. The photo from 9 March caught my eye: Lock on protest at PNR. It should really worry the ‘establishment’. Big style. A fairly average, grey haired, well dressed looking lady, cheerfully ‘locking on’ outside a fracking site. I’m obviously making assumptions, but she looks very much like a nice grandmother, who would not normally dream of protesting and who would look more at home in a WI meeting, or taking care of her grandchildren for the day. But no… voluntarily and uncomfortably lying on the tarmac, locked on at a fracking site, smiling, and I strongly suspect not aiming to back down any time soon. There are hundreds of others too, and the numbers are multiplying as they do their own research. I don’t image THEY aim to back down any time soon either, because they rightly believe that exploiting a new source of hydrocarbons is lunacy in climate change terms, in addition to many other cogent arguments against fracking based on independent, peer reviewed research papers.
    It reminded me of the time that operations manager John Dewar and another of Third Energy’s ‘experts’ attended a WI meeting at the small Ryedale village of Terrington, to give a talk and PR / Q&A session. I was reliably informed that they received such a severe grilling in the first short Q&A session that they baled out during the tea break. It would appear their flimsy arguments were no match for an intelligent, articulate (and possibly somewhat intimidating) bunch of WI ladies. So, dear establishment, be careful what you wish for if your arguments are flimsy.
