Some good news for a change.

Fracking commissioner resigns after six months.

Let's hope she closes and locks the door behind her on the way out, it was a crazy idea and not at all in line with trying to do our bit to reduce global warming.

Cracking open the earth under our feet? what were they thinking.

That's a wonderful job title, no wonder she's resigned.

Have to agree with @Minivanman comment "Cracking open the earth under our feet? what were they thinking."

Re: Some good news for a change.

Trouble with someone resigning, is that the "deputy" will then be "appointed"  ( more than likely ) so he/she/it will be pleased, getting an immediate pay rise for doing absolutely nothing... keep the job for 6 months and resign themselves, into a more "prestigious" outside job... probably as a tv presenter ( travelogue programme type). travelling the world, and getting paid for it...

You probably could but I bet someone would object if you said Blackstuff.
