‘Fracking is over’ says Kwarteng. But do the Tories mean it?

Kwasi Kwarteng: “Fracking is over.”

This is great news that may have passed you by:

Yesterday Kwasi Kwarteng, the energy minister, when asked about fracking in the UK announced that the government had “moved on”.

He stated: “We had a moratorium on fracking last year and frankly the debate’s moved on. It is not something that we’re looking to do.

“We’ve always said we’d be evidence-backed so if there was a time when the science evidence changed our minds we would be open to that. But for now, fracking is over.”

This is of course great news for those who consider science and public opinion to be important but as we know this government’s record on telling the truth is up there with a deceased horse winning the Derby.

This Writer agrees with Dorset Eye that it’s great news.

I also agree that the Tories’ reputation for economy with the truth is legendary.

But we have an undertaking from the Energy Minister that fracking is off the agenda.

All we have to do now is hold him – and them – to that.
