Foregone conclusions in South Downs

Great news that a bid by ‘Celtique Energy’ to frack the South Downs was flatly refused by South Downs National Park Authority. Less good news that the fracking company is indicating it will appeal the decision to Westminster, which has said it will always overrule local objections. Celtique Energy presumably thinks it is a foregone conclusion it will eventually go ahead. Popular protest will prove otherwise.
