    But Poland does have coal, dolt. It's not forced to share it with anyone is the point.

  11. Fracking

    Because it's about fracking, which would be an ecological disaster by all accounts. There's more to Scotland than shale fracturing so lots of people happily invest here.

  13. Fracking

    And here it is. http://archive.is/nJxeI "Indeed, as it reached its culmination at Holyrood today, Liam MacArthur of the Liberal Democrats gently - very gently - chided the Minister, Paul Wheelhouse, for taking the "scenic route" in arriving at his destination. And that destination? An effective ban. As opposed to what, an ineffective ban? Certainly, the terminology provoked yet more debate. Why could there not be a law simply banning fracking outright? Mr Wheelhouse explained that this would tie up scarce parliamentary time which might be required for such minor matters as Brexit. Others in government have argued that a new law is unnecessary and ineffectual as it could be overturned by a future parliament in any case. So what to do? The minister's approach is to transform an existing temporary moratorium into a lasting ban, deploying planning law. That will then be finalised following a further strategic environmental assessment. (Told you this was a protracted tale.)" No ban. The moratorium continues. Sod off, INEOS.
  14. Fracking

    Yeah but like I said, the context is missing. It omits the actual detail of what was proposed.
  15. Fracking

    https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-energy-fracking/scotland-rejects-fracking-citing-overwhelming-public-opposition-idUKKCN1C81M5 "Scotland will block fracking indefinitely" "Scotland imposed a moratorium on fracking, the process of fracturing underground shale rock to release gas and oil, in 2015 and that will now remain for the foreseeable future. " Effectively banned but not officially banned. And, having read it, your "unambiguous" Sturgeon quote doesn't include what Paul Wheelhouse actually outlined to the chamber. So. Quite ambiguous.
