On 11 December 2015 the UK Government signed up to a new deal on battling climate change at the Paris Conference. On the 17th December 2015 it was announced that 93 new licences to explore 159 blocks of land for shale gas to be potentially fracked had been issued.
Also in December and January the north of England and Scotland experienced the worst flooding since records began. Hypocrisy wedded to stupidity.
The coalition of the Liberals with the Tories brought a degree of common sense and balance, but the electorate were so scared of Ed Miliband that they turned in droves to the Tories and wiped the Liberals out. This is the result and worse still the Liberals have responded by lurching to the right too thinking that if the Tories did so well that must be what people want.
When will our politicians ever learn?
