Episode 3 - Don't call it a budget
It’s been quite some week in the UK – but one line in the mini-not-budget made Dale very happy. Fracking is back in the news again, but we’re wondering how the government makes it happen if there’s actually ZERO public support for it, and a growing wealth of research and fact that suggests England is not the place to frack. Dale reports back on the Labour party conference, and we answer a load of your questions too.
