Well done all who made this happen. Scotland now own’s her ‘Fracking rights’ The Smith Commission is being updated and slowly all we were offered is coming to us. I know we need 2015 general election to push Tory and Red Tory (Labour) out of Hollyrood and get Yes people or people in who demand the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ in full. It is coming. We just need wait. As I say a lot, Alex Salmond is in Westminster for a GOOD reason. He said before the referendum vote “I won’t stand down be it Yes or No” then stands down. I am assured Home Rule is less than a year away. We shall see guys and gall’s

The UK government has agreed to exclude Scotland from laws making it easier for fracking firms to drill for shale gas. The Infrastructure Bill currently going through Westminster is set to allow underground access in England, Wales and Northern Ireland but not Scotland. The Scottish government, the Scottish Labour Party and the Scottish Green Party had opposed the bill which would apply to residential areas.

Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing said the move made sense. Labour MP Tom Greatrex had lodged amendments to the bill requesting that full powers over shale gas exploration be given to the Scottish Parliament ahead of the general election in five months’ time. The coalition government did not back the suggestions but instead pledged to exclude Scotland from the impending legislation. Based on that offer the Scotland Office said “the opposition was content to withdraw its amendments”.

Not in Scotland

It explained: “That is not the same as devolving the power to the Scottish Parliament. “Its effect is to leave the current arrangement in Scotland as it stands at present, so the new system for underground access will not apply.” Those opposed to fracking say it is not safe and claim it causes environmental damage and mini earthquakes. Mr Greatrex said he had brought forward his amendments because of a “high degree of public concern”. He added that it was wrong to believe that shale gas was “some sort of energy silver bullet” which would have a “massive impact” on energy prices. The member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West said the regulatory regime should be “robust and consistent”.

What is fracking and why is it controversial?

Fracking process in US
  • Fracking is shorthand for hydraulic fracturing and refers to how the rock is broken apart by high a pressure mixture.
  • Fracking allows drilling firms to access difficult-to-reach resources of oil and gas.
  • In the US it has significantly boosted domestic oil production and driven down gas prices.
  • Opponents say the process releases potentially carcinogenic chemicals into nearby groundwater.
  • The industry suggests pollution incidents are the results of bad practice, rather than an inherently risky technique.

Holyrood currently has power over planning issues but the Smith Commission had recommended devolution of onshore licensing and mineral access rights. However, those new devolution powers would not come to Scotland before May’s election. Reacting to the coalition government’s offer, SNP minister Mr Ewing said: “This decision is a victory for common sense and shows how devolution of energy policy leads to different policy outcomes in Scotland. “It is a vindication of the Scottish government’s continued objections to UK government plans to remove the right of Scottish householders to object to unconventional oil and gas drilling under their home. “We’re glad the UK government has finally taken this on board – especially as 99 per cent of respondents to their own consultation also opposed the move.”

SNP must take stand against fracking

By @ShaunyNews Via http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/entertainment/celebrity/twitter-explodes-after-actor-shia-4970648 My words, Music video’s and a movie that won awards for far worse! Also I have been keeping tracks on the UK/USA Sex Scandal involving TV Personalities, Politicians and Royalty on my Blogs https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Sex+Abuse So I expose the bad stuff, the perverts and beasts, this video is not that!

This is the internet at it’s worst. 20 years ago NOTHING would have been said about this, but the PC being the PC and the people on it having to moan and complain every 2 minutes we see this video of 2 actors for a music video and everyone jumps on the ‘Hate’ bandwagon. Remember this movie here? This was ok pre-Internet world

Lolita (1997) Trailer

Lolita, commonly shortened to loli, is a cute child (or child-like) character in anime or manga. There are loli in virtually all series that get published as that particular character archetype generally becomes the most popular. The term “Lolita” originated from author Vladimir Nabokov’s famous novel Lolita (NOT from a manga, for God’s sake), which was of an older man who had a relationship with a child nicknamed Lolita.

21585554_main_zoom.jpegAs you can see the movie won a ton of awards, this was 1999, 16 years on due to the Internet bandwagon of hatred these things are no longer acceptable. For me it’s a music video, it is art, the young girl is an actor playing a part with Shia LaBeouf, nothing more, nothing less. What you see above with ‘Lolita’ is a movie where a 40 year old man falls deeply in love with a 14 year old girl. At this period in our species existence, it was allowed. But thanks to porn and the internet Shia LaBeouf will be getting called all sorts of names. The World has gotten too PC too quickly and people jump on bandwagons. Can I see where people are coming from? Of course, but in reality it is acting. I added ‘Lolita’ to show how much our world has changed over the years. When ‘Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax’ music video was not allowed, we look at some music videos now and it is almost porn. In-fact in many cases the video to the music is porn.

THE paedophile debate is raging once more on Twitter after a video showing Shia LaBeouf scrambling around with a dishevelled 12-year-old for a music video. The troubled 28-year-old wrestles and fight in a cage with Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler featuring in the new promo for the singer Sia’s track Elastic Heart. Sia had already predicted the paedophile criticism for the video, and true to form, Twitter exploded in conservative LaBouf bashing. “I anticipated some ‘pedophelia!!!’ cries for this video,” said the Chandelier singer. “All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring ‘Sia’ self states.

The dancer also appeared in Sia’s Chandelier video. In the video for Elastic Heart, shelooks a little worse for wear, wearing a fringed blonde wig and skin-coloured leotard as she goes stir crazy within the cage of her mind

Sia admits, she’s a bit taken aback by the level of outcry: “I apologize to those who feel triggered by Elastic Heart, my intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.”

The stars of the video can be seen climbing up the cage, wrestling, play-fighting and jumping on each other in ‘artistic scenes’ with Shia topless and also wearing flesh-coloured clothing. At one point, he is seen gently touching her hair as the pair lie on the ground before he places one hand on her shoulder and she quickly jumps up and darts off. Twitter users took to the social media site to slam the video, with one writing: “Sia’s “Elastic Heart” video is disgusting. Desperation of Maddie’s mom for her daughters fame and Sia’s leftover brain cells from drugs.”

Hollywood actor Shia, who appeared in the sexually explicit film Nymphomaniac ,classes himself as a meta-modernism and is known for being controversial. He also alleged he was raped by a woman during his ‘#IAMSORRY’ art exhibition last year. Elastic Heart has already clocked up more than three million hits on YouTube after appearing on Vevo. Another outraged viewer posted on Twitter: “So this sia video is disgusting and inappropriate for a 12 year old.”

Towards the end of the video, during a minute of silence, Shia is seen grasping for Maddie through the bars and she tries to pull him through and is visibly upset.

French name in the USA. This is getting rather strange this. Almost every day some issue is happening, things are sure getting busy.

One person has died and dozens were injured at one of Washington DC’s busiest subway stations after smoke forced the evacuation of passengers during rush hour.

The smoke filled L’Enfant Plaza station – one of the closest for the US capital’s tourist destinations – at around 3.30pm (8.30pm UK time) according to the District of Columbia Fire and EMS.

Spokeswoman Caroline Laurin confirmed one person had died.

Passenger Jonathan Rogers told The Washington Post: “It started to get scary pretty quick.

“People started praying. Smoke was coming in pretty steadily.”

Images showed smoke-filled subway carriages and people attempting to get out of the station.

It was unclear what caused the smoke.

Many feared they would chock to death

Eighteen people were taken to Medstar Washington Hospital Center, most suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation.

Spokeswoman So Young Pak said 11 people were treated and released. Seven remained in hospital, with one in a critical condition.

Matt Brock, a spokesman for George Washington University Hospital, said that 34 people had been brought to the hospital with smoke inhalation.
