        Any welsh forests we should worry about too? Or Scotch? Or… French? If we are going all out Gaylick connections.

        UK is our problem now?

        I also see a Belfast paper is on about Star Wars filming in Ulster. We are a mixed up little island.

    Amazing that those so dependent on others (read taxpayers and welfare payments and idiotic charities, and waffling university environment departments etc) are so insistent on harassing and slowing the work and productivity of those that generate the wealth that the obstructionists depend on.

      Oil – you can’t drink it.
      Water – can’t live 3 days without it.
      Obstruct away.

    great business model, abundant water- frack and pollute source of water, get some gas/oil, reduce abundant supply of drinkable water, drive up the cost of water.
