PROTESTORS QUIT BALCOMBE DRILLING SITE
This piece in the Mail gives the latest update on the attempts by green activists to halt drilling at the exploratory site near Balcombe in South England. Extraordinarily, the protestors, who a few days ago were claiming success as the drilling was stopped by the police over safety fears. However after the police finally got tough with the protestors and arrested a few dozen, the whole thing has turned around. It appears that these protestors don't have the stomach for a real fight. When the going got tough the protestors got going (home).
