    Day 2
    Minister defends consent for Cuadrilla’s fracking site on second day of legal challenge
    Lawyers for the Communities’ Secretary have been defending his decision to grant planning permission for Cuadrilla’s fracking plans near Blackpool.

    In October 2016, Sajid Javid approved the company’s scheme to drill, frack and test up to four wells at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton.

    A residents group and a local campaigner went to the High Court in Manchester this week to challenge the decision, arguing that was unlawful and should be quashed.

    Preston New Road Action Group (PNRAG) said Mr Javid had misunderstood or misapplied local and national planning policy in approving the fracking scheme.

    The judge, Sir Ian Dove, said he would produce his judgement as soon as possible but was unable to give an estimate of when that would be. He told the legal teams, which comprised eight barristers, as well as solicitors and advisers:

    “You have all raised a great deal of interesting food for thought. I need to give my time to do justice to them.”

    He added:
    “I will knuckle down now. You can go away having finished your hard work. Mine now starts.”

    a little reminder from another thread

    http://ec.europa.eu/environment/inte...ntional_en.htm

    Shame we are leaving the EU and that these regs, like a lot of workers rights, will undoubtedly be 'forgotten' to be included UK law when the Tories do their 'great repeal'

    ... BUT they are of course still currently valid

    Chartered Insurance Institute warns on growing fracking risks

    The CII's claims faculty new generation group stated that while the existing products provide adequate cover for households and small businesses, and no insurer specifically excludes fracking, there are no insurance policies that specifically cover it.

    The key perils associated with fracking include earthquakes, explosions and fire, pollution, injury and death. The report said: "While cover for these risks are included in most insurance policies, fracking will pose additional complications around liability. Widespread fracking may also lead to increased claims frequency near fracking sites and then insurers may have to consider how they underwrite this emerging higher-risk group."
    More on the link.All these dangers and the Government overrule Democratic decisions and want to frack the whole country that is so small.We live so close to each other, to the rivers, streams, ditches,, wildlife. I fear for us all if this carries on.We will see.

    Note especially how many wells are being 'abandoned' particularly given the UK governments complete resistance to adding safeguards to UK drills.

    Just a quick update .
    The Fracking site here near Blackpool has resembled a swamp lately with all the rain recently.
    However with good weather forecast for a week or so Cuadrilla will be expecting to crack on.
    But so will the protectors who have just opened their second water camp.

    The main live streamers Danny the Lion and Frank a Salford lad have been busy live streaming and also filmed a kitchen being made out of
    old Pallets.And second-hand roofing materials, all the protectors getting stuck in.
    This could be a long fight unless the court case goes in favour of the protectors.Lasting months, years even.

    The other day at AE Yates of Bolton suppliers to the Frackers a peaceful pop-up protest took place.Things got a little heated.
    So the next day a lock on took place, kind of saying get nasty and things escalate.
    As this company probably is thinking of how many sites will be needed they carry on. Perhaps they should rethink, they do not seem short of work.
    The protectors just see the danger to the Air and Water not short term profit.
    Would you believe we let companies get away with causing Earthquakes, pollution, danger to us here in Great Britain.
    And just do a little research, see how big this could be on this small Island.

    Expecting over the next couple of weeks to see protests step up as Reclaim The Power step into the fray.
    The road outside the site is being lowered to 30 from 50 and 20 very close to the site.
    Trucks still leaving a mess, stones, mud as they leave site on the road.
    No professional truck wheel wash installed.

    Police still acting as Cuadrillas private army. A few arrests including a lady on a bike.
    Not very popular at times as they change each time a lorry enters or leaves to one of forceful control.Out they run from their vans, ten twenty thirty at a time to facilitate this company.
    Cost over a million now and bound to increase.
    More people turning up each week, things building.

    Back to live streaming thoughts. It is good to do because you keep your back covered.Especially if in close contact with police or workers
    The evidence is there for all to see, not as certain biassed newspapers or TV Station might report things.
    Expecting live streaming to build massively across the UK. And day courses, are being held here and there.For those that want to learn a little.
    Much happening across Great Britain, but this is the one to fight and let the Frackers know they are not going to have an easy passage.
    This battle will be fought on many fronts.
    As I say just a quick update.Next week the fuse may be lit and I will be busy with live links from many places.

    I believe on Monday a member of the Happy Mondays group Bez is popping down to the protector camps then the Fracking Site to offer a little support.
    Tina Rothery has been in London this week and expect Tina will be back down there live streaming.I will put links on next week.
    A few weeks to look forward to, perhaps not if you are a Fracker or supporter of Fracking.
    As we have just mentioned music .i will leave you with some.

    Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you for a second time, first one a few pages back.One Man And His Beard.

    Thanks for the post tobyjugg2,i missed it, I was writing as you posted.Just spotted it now.
    Yes Oil price so important.You take so much information in you forget to put them down.

    Yesterday I was looking at the price of Frac Sand rising.And how much is used per frack.Mines being opened and the dangers that brings.More expense for the Frackers, transportation etc.Silica I believe, kiln dried perhaps, similar or the same as you put between block paving, jointing but not 100% sure.
    Price build as demand grows.
    Worth a touch of research I feel.
    http://geology.com/articles/frac-sand/

    Councils perhaps scared of challenging the government due to the expense incurred.
    Well make is so tough through regulating the Frackers it is impossible for them.

    Lancashire County Council should be jumping down their throats at each regulation breach, are they I wonder.
    Just a few thoughts that I will come back to.
    Believe Spain did a similar thing and the Frackers have Fracked off.That statement needs checking as well.You read so much it is easy to make mistakes.
    Anyway nice to hear from you tobyjugg2,always interesting thoughts and posts.
    And a lot of lines to read between.Interesting article.

    Anti-frackers swing into action at Lancashire quarry.
    Anti-fracking activists from Bristol swung into action in Lancashire this morning with a blockade at Preston New Road fracking site suppliers Aggregate Industries.

    The blockade is the launch action of Break the Chain, a fortnight of interventions called by national social and climate justice group Reclaim the Power

    Press release this morning and picture.

    Latest picture from Reclaim The Power at the Quarry near Carnforth.Such a great picture I thought it best to share.
    Latest is.: Police removal team on site to try and shift our friends on swings - still going strong!
    This operation has trucks queuing and has shut the operation down.
    No aggregates going anywhere.The idea is to make suppliers to Fracking sites think twice about what they are doing.


    I will update later in the day from the PNR Cuadrilla Fracking Site as a little work to do in the garden.Crops, plants to prepare and sell as the warmth of spring arrives.
    Bye for now.

    UPDATE: the swing-blockaders came down after 11 HOURS, closing the quarry for a full day! Amazing work at the 1st #breakthechain action

    As another day breaks a 8 man lock on at the Preston New Road Cuadrilla Fracking Site Lancashire.
    8 people locked onto the fences that Cuadrilla moved forward to prevent this from happening under the guise of remedial works that probably would have taken years.Probably would have planted a couple of trees in a year or so.
    Also a protest elsewhere against Eddie Stobart, Warrington I believe.

    Yesterday a report on why Reclaim The Power closed off business for the day at the Quarry near Carnforth.
    Showing the supply chains of the fracking industry some resistance



    Also I said the protectors were locked to the fences.They are locked to each other and must not be moved till the protector removal squad arrive from Manchester.
    Heard somewhere that there is a high height protector removal squad based down South somewhere.

    The Lancashire protectors seem to be getting a lot of support from many places.But superb support shown from Kirby Misperton In Yorkshireicon.
    I have noticed this over the last few months and am sure the support will be returned when they need it.
    All in it together thoughts.

    Something in the Water: Satirical adverts appear in bus stops around Leeds to protest fracking
    Bus-stops in Leeds have been taken over by activists in a creative protest to raise awareness that thousands of gallons of fracking fluid could be headed for the city.

    Got a little work to do, so will leave you with this if you have a little time.
    Will update the days events late in the afternoon.Take care and have a good day.

    Voices from the Gasfields : It started with just ONE well
    This is the film the UK & Australian Governments do NOT want you to see! Documenting the accounts of families living with the Unconventional hydrocarbon (Fracking) industry as a neighbour, this hour long documentary is shocking, as it reveals the day to day pollution these people live with – pollution of water, air, light and sound, some of the the basic human requirements needed to survive. The blind eye that the authorities and the Unconventional hydrocarbon (fracking) industry turn to these families living conditions, and the complete disregard to the environmental damage done to the bush by this, is truly disgraceful.
