Mike Hill and the IET
Regular readers may be aware that local engineer Mike Hill was subjected to a protracted smear campaign by pro-fracking activists.
We believe that in making a host of unfounded, unsustainable but ultimately very damaging insinuations against an honest man the pro-fracking activists concerned not only crossed a line into totally unacceptable campaigning, but set a new low in the race for the bottom which has characterised the industry’s PR campaigning in the UK.
Redacted documents released after a subject access request subsequently revealed that the individuals concerned included 2 Kens (one from UKOOG) and a Michael. We’ll leave you to guess who they might be, although one of the Ken’s, Ken Wilkinson has proudly admitted his involvement.

We are delighted to say that a confirmation that these smears were rejected out-of-hand was published in December’s issue of the IET’s Member News. It read:
We trust that those involved will be issuing a suitable public apology in the near future.
