Downing Street David Cameron went down to Margate on Thursday to officially open the London Array Wind Farm, he was actually on dry land in the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery which was shut for the day especially for him. He sneaked in and out the back way because there was a demo against bedroom tax at the front of the building. Anyway whilst there he was spouting off that fracking should be encouraged. Hardly unexpected now the wind farm is finished his rich mates have got to find an alternative way to make money out of us.
There are a couple of fracking sites in this part of Kent, Canterbury and Sandwich, and some Polish film making geezer Lech Kowalski has made a film ‘Drill Baby Drill’ about the dangers of fracking which perchance is being shown where fracking is being planned.
I do like it when someone I can’t stand drops themselves in the ‘Tom Tit’ (shit). This time it’s John Inverdale.
The so called tennis presenter, who doesn’t seem to know much about tennis, said of Marion Bartoli the winner of yesterdays Wimbledon singles “Do you think Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little, ‘you’re never going to be a looker, you’ll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight?”
John Inverdale made the remark on the broadcaster’s Radio 5 live programme shortly after French player Marion Bartoli defeated Germany’s Sabine Lisicki on Centre Court.
