I posted: "Never felt more proud to be a green, well done Caroline" on Facebook and "Solidarity with @CarolineLucas and the other protestors arrested this afternoon." on Twitter yesterday, in response to the news that Caroline Lucas was arrested for obstruction at Balcombe.
The Green Party are the only major party opposed to fracking - Labour and of course, Lib Dems and Tories, are backing this appalling concept that injects huge amounts of poisonous water into the ground. Over on the Guardian website, there is a great comment: "A politician with principles. Con, Labour, Lib, eat your hearts out."
Fracking is now the front line of the environmental movement. Fracking encapsulates all that is wrong with big business, fossil fuel use, poisoning water supplies, and of course the vested interests in politics. What's more. it is coming to a town near you.
