Fracking plans

Poland’s prime minister, Donald Tusk, said his government has adopted a draft law designed to speed up shale gas exploration (your report, 12 March).

He said this would in due course reduce dependence on Russian gas supplies.

The Ukraine should be a warning to us all. Donald Tusk is sensible politician who puts his country and economic reality before the luddite utterances of the green zealots.

Unfortunately for the public, sensible politicians are thin on the ground in both Scotland and the UK. Let’s get fracking.
