Is this another instance of the Scottish people being misled by the SNP?
Or is it all dreadful Scottish Labour propaganda that nobody in their right mind should believe?
If the latter, then why is the Scottish Government not pledging to ban fracking? Why is it looking into post-fracking clean-up operations? And what was said to the fracking firms?
At First Minister’s Questions today Kezia [Dugdale] challenged the First Minister [Nicola Sturgeon] to back her pledge to ban fracking in Scotland.
Despite the SNP campaigning on an anti-fracking platform last May, Nicola Sturgeon refused to back Labour’s pledge.
The SNP are only committed to a temporary freeze on fracking, not an outright ban, and have commissioned major research on how to clean up after fracking.
The SNP Government are also not releasing minutes of meetings with business who stand to gain millions from fracking in Scotland.
Before First Minister’s Questions, SNP Energy Minister Fergus Ewing said the SNP Government’s current approach is to pursue fracking based on evidence and no conclusions had been reached.
What the SNP aren’t telling you about fracking in Scotland
Nicola Sturgeon met Jim Radcliffe, the Chief Executive of Ineos, who stands to make millions from fracking, the day the SNP announced a fracking freeze
But the SNP Government aren’t keeping minutes from these meetings.
Scotland’s Environmental quango is working with Whitehall departments on a communions strategy with other civil service agencies around about how to spin fracking – and aren’t keeping minutes of their meetings either.
