Enough is enough. The phoney debate over fracking (the hydraulic fracturing mining method to extract shale gas and oil) has gone on long enough. There is simply nothing to debate.

Guardian's 'Christian conservatism v Welfare Reform' Claim is Bunkem

Far from being "no connection at all between right-wing economic views and theological conservatism", it turns out that on an even cursory review of his own evidence the very reverse of what Brown contends is the case.
