Government instruction: Ignore protest and public opinion.

Ignore fracking protests, government tells planners







 
Ignore the protests, ignore the evidence, ignore all counter arguments and ignore any other suggestions that may cause any delay to the drilling companies plans to exploit the extraction of oil and gas. The planners must recognise that "mineral extraction is essential to local and national economies" and consequently must do everything possible to fast track applications and thereby ensure that the drilling companies are able to peruse their quest for profits.
It is of course a coincidence that these drilling companies are major contributors to Conservative party funds, and the governments instructions to Planning authorities are solely for the benefit of society.
