David Cameron has done another U Turn this time over  fracking. He said: “What we are looking at is trying to have a very simple system where every time a well is dug, immediately £1m goes to the local community and not just to the local council but actually to local people so people can see a cash benefit in their local village, in their local town and even, potentially in their local pocket as well.”

According to Downing Street this was a slip of the tongue by the British Prime Minister. The Shale Gas Industry is likely to offer £100,000 to each community it drills a well in.
