Fracking won't cut energy costs

Mr Osborne has announced tax breaks for fracking companies and Mr Cameron has told us that "fracking must be accepted by all". The PM (and Sammy Wilson) assure us that energy prices for consumers will fall.

Yet a Commons select committee report earlier this year found no evidence to suggest that fracking will lead to energy price drops.

Leading politicians know there'll never be any fracking in Belfast or London. It won't affect them personally or politically.
