Will Fracking benefit the UK citizens?

Private FraserIn a recent article on these posts it was commented that US gas prices will rise as exports start. We know Ineos at Grangemouth is building a massive gas storage facility for US Fracked Gas. Now the caveat. We know what prunes our government ministers are and the not fit for purpose DECC. If we support Fracking in the UK can we guarantee they only take as much as we need protecting our resources for generations or will the mantra of free trade result in the rape of the UK and selling our birthright to the rest of Europe. Just like they did with oil! Big profits for big overseas developers and a few well paid seats on boards for retiring ministers. Any bets folks!

    All the greenies keep telling me the UK can never benefit from fracking in the way the US has because of our relationship with Europe and that what we draw from the ground would be a commodity ‘for all’, rather than a resource exclusive to us (ahving been reaped from our ground) which we can consume cheaply or sell for a profit. This doesn’t make sense, but it if this is the case, it is one more brilliant reason to get out of Europe. The ‘union’ that bans fracking but will allow the UK to do it so long as all those developing nations across Europe and all those ‘greener than thou’ ones can environmentally, economically, and sustainably benefit from it. Advise me….
