Ineos, which has begun a community consultation process to try to get support for fracking, said that it promised to drink "a lot of tea in a lot of village halls" to try to win the argument [over fracking].
Whatever your own position on the fracking debate, I'm sure the irony of the comment from Friends of the Earth won't be lost on you: "Ineos", said Friends of the Earth, had the budget for "a long and dirty fight" while community and campaign groups could only fight their corner "on a shoestring".
Not that the industry which FoE support, namely wind, would dream of using their financial clout to fund long and dirty fights. Perish the thought.
