Fracking has been banned across the UK with immediate effect!

The one active site here was closed in the summer due to the earthquakes it was causing, but other sites were being explored.

This is a victory for protestors!

@puffinus_puffinus the way the bbc reported it, it’s not actually a ban it’s just ‘suspended’. I think they went into a bit more detail further down the article

@becky @puffinus_puffinus ahhh so it's another 'moritorium', similar to what we have in Scotland.

Not a ban, just a pledge to not renew/allow new ones

@GreenandBlack @puffinus_puffinus yeah they’ll be hoping the dirty lefties will be confused and will vote for them again as the new green party I reckon

@puffinus_puffinus @becky @GreenandBlack
The hilarious thing was it was supplied first to the Guardian so they could splash it on the front page as a BAN and bury the detail.
Always happy to undermine Corbyn, them.

@priryo @becky @GreenandBlack yeah, they fooled me. Not that I'd vote Tory anyway, obviously, but the story itself seemed positive.
