DeSmogUK – worth your support

So, MCFly subscribes to a rather excellent news outfit called “DeSmogUK” – lots of good investigative journalism on the frackers, the deniers and so forth…  Here’s their latest newsletter…

Thursday 25 October 2018

This week, we’ve been focusing on the investigation into allegations that the judge who handed three fracking protesters “manifestly excessive” jail sentences has family ties to the oil and gas industry.

Under the Judicial Code of Conduct, judges are expected to disclose personal relationships, social contacts and activities that could cause a bias or a conflict of interest and which put their impartiality into question. Our reporter Chloe Farand has the full story here.

We also reported on the big news that Shell is ending its corporate partnership with the National Gallery after a decade, as the credibility drains out of the Big Oil sponsorship sham. Our editor Mat Hope has the full story here.

This is an issue we’ve been reporting on for several years – and it’s the sort of story we’d like to continue to expose.

But we need your help.

We’ve got ten days left of our crowd fund appeal and we need your help to reach our target of £20,000.
