The Lib Dems are in an interesting position following Monday’s #InfrastructureBill vote.

14 Lib Dem MPs voted in favour of a moratorium – http://drillordrop.com/2015/01/26/two-lancs-tories-joined-mps-voting-for-a-fracking-moratorium/

Meanwhile it looks like business Secretary Vince Cable is responsible for a plan to spend £80 million to fund the drilling of hundreds of boreholes all over the country in an attempt to persuade us that fracking is safe – http://action.sumofus.org/a/fracking-taxpayers/?sub=tw

No wonder Tessa Munt quit as Vince Cable’s aide! – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-31012672

I’ll be writing to the Lib Dem MPs who voted in favour of a moratorium to find out more.
