David Cameron shows just how out of touch and ill informed he is about fracking the UK

Cameron's push for Fracking is nothing to do with energy security, and all to do with money

Cameron yesterday said that Britian has a "duty" to embrace fracking in the wake of the Ukraine crisis.

The Prime Minister said that Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea should be a "wake up call" and that European countries must become less reliant on Russian gas.

However he then went on to admit that "Britain is not reliant on Russian gas to any extent, it's a few percentage points of our gas intake, but the variety around Europe is very, very wide. Some countries are almost 100 per cent reliant on Russian gas so I think it is something of a wake up call and I think action will be taken."

So to paraphrase, we in Britain must willingly accept Fracking, and all the environmental and health impacts it will have so that we can sell the gas to Germany and France who won't allow it in their own country.

Cameron's push for Fracking is nothing to do with energy security, and all to do with money.
