  1. Chinese Retailer are being offered hugely subsidised postal services known as “Terminal Dues” by the United Nation’s Universal Postal Union (UPU) allowing them to sell goods including postage from China to the UK for less than the stamp would cost a UK retailer to send the same item from the UK to the same customer. United Nations UPU class China, the second biggest economy in the world, as a Category 3 Economy along side Gabon. This entitles Chinese online retailers huge international postal discounts. Packages can be sent to the UK for less than a penny. And it’s the UK mail servi
  2. Hi old Tawnyowl here with a thread that i want to know much more about and involves many countries.But mostly involves China. Though i feel affects many people in other countries in many ways. Well when something seems wrong it is usually clear to see and you have to say something.Usually after a little time things get put together the thread becomes clearer and all is revealed hopefully. If i get things wrong which happens from time to time i welcome being told so. But i will research what you might say as i hope others might research and help me get to the bottom of what is bothering
  3. Hi honeybee13 I will try to be unbiased in my view of things.Politically anyway. There is a lot of mistrust around at the moment. It could rise again some might be thinking. Fracking was a sure vote loser in the forthcoming General Election.For one party anyway,all of a sudden out pops a moratorium. All the warnings were in place for years about the dangers but onwards they went brushing experts and people aside. The oil and gas authority report due out what will it show. The police the massive expense,the people called protectors and others thrown aside not listened to.
  4. The UK government has issued an immediate moratorium in England because of the risk of earth tremors. Governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have already issued measures that amount to moratoriums on fracking. , the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), said new scientific advice concluded that it was not possible with current technology to predict accurately whether fracking would cause tremors and how big they would be. https://drillordrop.com/2019/11/02/immediate-moratorium-on-fracking-in-england-because-of-tremor-risk/ Fracking morato
  5. No more UK fracking in 2019 as Cuadrilla runs out of time after record-breaking tremor https://drillordrop.com/2019/09/30/no-more-uk-fracking-in-2019-as-cuadrilla-runs-out-of-time-after-record-breaking-tremor/ Cuadrilla sent office staff to check property damage from UK’s biggest fracking earth tremor Initial assessments of damage caused by the UK’s largest fracking-induced earth tremor were made by staff from the Cuadrilla’s headquarters, not professional surveyors or insurance experts. Some people have had claims dismissed after company visits, which were usually led
  6. Good morning from Lancashire,a fine weekend to come. Some recent fracking news,events etc. Cuadrilla fracked just seven times at its Preston New Road site near Blackpool last month before inducing a record-breaking earth tremor. DrillOrDrop has seen official logs of fracturing at the site which show Cuadrilla was using volumes of frack fluid and sand significantly below the maximum allowed. The rate of injection was also under the limit. Despite this, the operation induced the UK’s strongest fracking-induced tremor. https://drillordrop.com/2019/09/12/cuadrilla-frack
  7. Good morning from the Frontier of no Fracking. On we go with a few articles. Blackpool (between Kirkham & Blackpool on A583) this SATURDAY the 31st August. Many residents just can't be here regularly due to life-demands like work, carer responsibilities, bills to pay etc. but support online and beeps as they pass have been a valued part of the nearly 1000 days of protest at this fracking site - this Saturday - as many as possible will show up to stand together. https://www.facebook.com/events/466244093957185/ UK fracking struggles to shake
  8. Good morning,what is happening this fine day.On we go with a little news and a touch of history. Sir Jim Ratcliffe slates government restrictions as ‘archaic and unworkable’ Sir Jim Ratcliffe, one of Britain’s richest men, has set his sights on the US shale gas industry as his fracking ambitions in the UK wane. The owner of petrochemicals giant Ineos is on the hunt for shale gas investments within the US fracking heartlands of the Permian Basin, according to sources. The billionaire industrialist is understood to have begun assessing a number of US shale projects
  9. A diiferent post to start the day off. For those that may wonder how Cuadrilla get funded. They keep emptying Shareholders in AJLucas Group Ltd pockets out with the largest hoover in the world. Straight down their throats the hoover goes and sucks their pockets dry with promises. Soon there will be nothing left,nothing but dust. Ah,enough of that lets see how AJ lucas are doing and what their shareholders are saying. You may have to root around a little but that can be interesting.

People are alarmed,stressed and distressed and many locals turned up at the Fracking Site yesterday afternoon to let their feelings be known. Sky News Report. Yesterday the local farmer who leased his land to Cuadrilla came under a little pressure. I have seen a video but cannot link it at the moment. Meanwhile the boss of Cuadrilla who came in all fired up and youthful now looks tired and worn out,clearly time to Frack off. What will be revealed when a proper investigation take
  11. This is serious,surely Cuadrila and Fracking are now finished in Great Britain. Many reports of houses shaking and damage must have been done. Including my phone full of messages from people who felt it. Damage will have been done. Surly no minister in their right mind would now relax Earthquake rules.

  22. Hi labrat and unclebulgaria67. Just following on from your posts.Drill or Drop interesting article. The shale gas commissioner, Natascha Engel has resigned after just over six months, she has told a national newspaper. Ms Engel, a former Labour MP, opposed fracking when Ineos first announced it was planning to explore for shale gas in her North East Derbyshire constituency. Natascha Engel’s constituency office.

  23. Anti-fracking campaigners win appeal against Ineos protest injunction Anti-fracking campaigns have won a legal challenge to an injunction granted to the shale gas company, Ineos Upstream. Three law lords granted an appeal brought by Joe Corre and Joe Boyd. In a reserved judgement, Lord Justice Longmore, Lord Justice David Richards and Lord Justice Leggatt ruled that sections of the injunction, first granted in July 2017, were unlawful. The case could have implications for similar, injunctions granted to four more oil and gas companies. The original injunct
  24. Latest news from Drill Or Drop. Two-thirds of the UK’s first horizontal shale gas well was not fracked during a nine-week operation last autumn, according to reports that the company, Cuadrilla, tried to keep secret. The documents reveal that the Preston New Road site near Blackpool experienced mechanical problems and lost equipment. They show that quantities of frack fluid used in the operation were too low to qualify for the legal definition of associated hydraulic fracturing. They also confirm for the first time that a majority of earth tremors around the site were on d
  25. Ministers have been advising councils that gas from fracking in their area would help combat climate change. But a judge found that the government had failed to consider the latest evidence. Justice Dove ruled that "material from Talk Fracking, and in particular their scientific evidence as described in their consultation response, was never in fact considered relevant or taken into account" when formulating the revised policy https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47472732 The campaign group, Talk Fracking, has won its challenge against governme
