really struggling in the Chamber to defend #fracking. He strikes an out of touch & isolated figure with his sneering tone & ill-informed answers to the multiple objections, including some angry criticism from his own backbenchers
Now all but confirmed: @trussliz
are willing to ride roughshod over planning laws, the climate, their own Tory manifesto, and simple common sense by powering ahead on #fracking without a jot of consideration for local communities. This. Must. Be. Stopped.
Rees Mogg squirming as so many of us, including his own backbenchers, challenge him on pledge PM gave that #fracking will only happen where there is community consent - and is now endeavouring to pretend that compensation is the same as consent - it is not.
Really? “Some of the opposition to fracking has been funded by Mr #Putin's regime,” says Jacob Rees Mogg.
What a way of dismissing opposition to #fracking by people from all walks of life.
I’m pleased to announce that earthquakes are now a good thing, provided somebody (not you, obvs!) is making some money.
One thing I pride myself on is my sound judgement. Like when I decided to ignore the geologist and believe the rabid right-wing brain-dead fucknuggets.
Tories seem to think that "consent" just means simply paying the person afterwards. 😬
Jacob Rees-Mogg says it's ok to start #fracking local communities as long as you give compensation.
I'm sitting on the sofa, with a glass of wine after a strenuous walk with a family dog, simultaneously tired and happy yet almost in despair that #fracking is being talked about as a solution to anything. How can its fans be so utterly dim about the future of our #ClimateCrisis?
By lifting the ban on #fracking in England, the Conservative Government has gone against its manifesto commitments. Here’s why 👇🧵 (1/6)
Jacob Rees Mogg getting a very rough ride from his own side over #fracking - and retaliating with some force. Could this be a sign of things to come under the new govt?
🗣 “In Scotland there will be no change, there will be no fracking whatsoever…
…but one thing that will change is we’ll be long gone from the shackles of this place by the time shale gas is produced in England.”
“Localised earthquakes followed by repeated tremors and terrifying aftershocks are the Brexit benefit I’ve been hiding in my locker this entire time”
To better understand the dangerously misleading political rhetoric of gaslighting ideologically extreme propagandist Jacob Rees-Mogg, compare his use of the word "hysteria" in relation to #fracking, with the 2019 Tory manifesto's use of the words "categorically" & "safely". 🇬🇧 https://t.co/Tru0N7JC66
It’s amazing how many Labour MP’s standing up and talking against fracking, are the same ones who’s political careers were built on the backs of miners and all that industry contributed to the environment. #JacobReesMogg #Fracking
📈 #Fracking “will deepen our country’s dependence on fossil fuels” without bringing down fuel bills says @AdrianRamsay
If the Government wanted to reduce energy bills they would be investing in renewables and insulating homes right now.
Das britische Parlament diskutiert gerade denn Sinn und Unsinn von #Fracking als Lösung für die hohen Gaspreise:
Kurz, es bringt nichts.
I find it funny that the Tories are talking about “consent” from local areas on #Fracking when a fair few of them don’t even understand consent in the bedroom (allegedly).
The UK Gov & it’s #fracking agenda are a serious & tangible threat to our country.
#Scotland is clearly a target 🎯 for Jacob & his cronies. Only #independence can end this power grab of our #Parliaments rights by #Westminster & save our #environment

From what you have seen or heard about the issue, do you think Britain should or should not start extracting
shale gas? #Fracking #Poll
Earthquake levels set for review to allow #Fracking
"Fracking is a dangerous fantasy - it would do nothing to cut energy bills, it costs far more than #Renewables, it is unsafe and it is deeply unpopular with the public," said Ed Miliband
Well I'm so irate at the utter bs being spouted #Fracking #CostOfLivingCrisis #GeneralElectionNow #ToriesOutNow #FollowBackFriday. Haven't done this for a bit but desperate to #GTTONow

Can we raise a shout to #GTTO
Did #QuestionTime mention #Kwarteng? #Fracking #MPsOnHols #FoodBanks #WarmBanks #Poverty #CostOfLivingCrisis
Or was it the usual BBC State narrative and Smoke & attempted mirrors?
Riots or Police corruption mentioned?
Liz is going to fuck around and find out when it comes to #fracking in the UK. Those folks are serious in their opposition.
Why is it that the Conservatives don’t want wind turbines that cause no damage and would help our energy generation mix but they will allow fracking that won’t help energy generation but will permanently pollute our ground water? We oppose #fracking https://t.co/7nOFb3DbNB
#Fracking is a time wasting pointless exercise. Solar panels and off shore wind farms are proven and can be implemented immediately. Also insulation. But follow the money. Who is feeding money to the Tories?
Here's where the government have approved #Fracking (pink).
The lil purple dots are anti fracking groups.
I really hope a lot of people are prepared to go to jail over this. #FrackingTories
It would be great if we had politicians who actually listened to what people want. Instead of just telling us what they think people want 🙄
The only #Fracking that is acceptable is on Battlestar Galactica 😎
