Locals in Tory constituency offered £180 bribes (of taxpayers’ money) to support fracking | Pride’s Purge

The Cameron government is desperately trying to drum up support for fracking in a Tory held constituency by offering local constituents £180 bribes (of taxpayers’ money) to attend pro-fracking ‘workshops’.

But locals who are openly anti-fracking are barred from attending.

Interestingly, anti-fracking feeling is extremely high in the Fylde constituency where these bribes are being offered.

Naturally, the fact the constituency has a Tory MP has no bearing at all on this matter.

    I think the key point is to determine if the inducement is ultimately from the taxpayers
    purse or from the industry purse. With oil prices so low they would have to cook their presentation to make their fracking look financially interesting….in the short term until the oil crooks get their market stabalised.

    The Tories are really good at this kind of discrimination. Barring the anti-fracking side sounds rather similar to Jeremy Hunt’s re-located session which barred junior doctors. What’s the point of a debate where only one side is represented? The could have saved their, oops our, money if those who can attend are already in favour of fracking.
