Title: Open Cast Mining at Sharlston
Post by: thebest4fev on November 09, 2012, 07:03:27 pm
There is a proposal to opencast all the fields on the Wakefield side of New Sharlston. The poor folk who live there had opencasting up to their backdoors on the pit site and now UK coal want to Opencast up to their front doors. We didnt need coal when they shut the pit and put 1000 men out of work or stacking shelves in Asda. Surprise Surprise Now we need it and are not bothered how much inconvenience they cause getting it.  In their wisdom they have decided we dont need Hell Lane but will reinstate it with a Bridleway that will be great for all the hundreds of Horse riders in New Sharlston we should go down on our knees and thank them so much, i am overwhelmed at their generosity by the way none of the executives at UK Coal live in New Sharlston what a surprise. The whole thing sticks in my throat and I find it appalling..
If you think as I do, get in touch with your District Councillors who are working with residents to fight this proposal.

Never mind whats happening in Sharlston what about the 450 homes and 2000 people we're going to be laden with. Oh, sorry I forgot - you have to tow the party line and can't use the brains you were born with.
A government of the people, by the people and for the people - not a government for you, who you support and against the people.
