We are all, I know, just marking time until the Oprah Winfrey interview with Lindsay Lohan takes place. So let us while away the tedious, meaningless hours by talking about fracking.
This, as I'm sure you are aware unless you have elected to move to the bunker early (possibly when the Winfrey-Lohan news broke), is the process of drilling holes in the ground and forcing water down them at such high pressure that it fractures the shale rock beneath, releasing gas. They do it a lot in America and David Cameron wants to do it here starting with West Sussex, where test drilling by energy firm Cuadrilla has begun, despite protests. Lord Howell, former government energy adviser, shale gas lobbyist and George Osborne's father-in-law, had recommended using the "desolate north-east" for exploratory operations (later amended to the "unloved north-west", at which point someone presumably bundled him under the scullery stairs before he could suggest blowing up Scotland to put the poor Pictish folk out of their misery). But evidently someone thought that fracking up the south instead would add to the sense that "we're all in this together" as indeed it will, when drilling drains the last dregs of Tory sympathy from the home counties more swiftly and surely than it will their gas reserves, and the good burghers of Sussex join the rest of the country in loathing its leader.
