The times they are a changin’
Well Cuadrilla’s timings for Preston New Road are anyway.
Today Francis Egan, Cuadrilla’s boss, told Drill or Drop “We will exercise our democratic right to carry on with our lawful work at Preston New Road which is progressing to plan.”
With Mr Egan it is hard to know whether even he believed some of the things he says, but in this case, it’s pretty clear that if he does he has no idea what the rest of his company are doing and saying.
Here is what the Cuadrilla website still says today (25th July 2017 – Q3 2017)
Perhaps Mr Egan is hoping to enlist the services of the new Doctor Who and travel back in time? I’m sure the police would facilitate the use of a nice blue structure if it helped him.
Does anyone actually believe a word of the twaddle that Mr Egan is talking about their plans being on track or the pad only being the size of a rugby pitch? No I thought not.
And Francis – before you come out with this ridiculous stuff, at least have the sense to see if your own corporate website contradicts you. You’ll only embarrass yourself again if you don’t 🙂
it will also be interesting to see how long it takes Cuadrilla to update that “Latest news” tab now we have made them aware of it.
In the meantime Mr Egan is awarded the coveted Q2 Refracktion Pants on Fire Award.
Update 15th August – they finally seem to have noticed 🙂
