We tried negotiation. It didn’t work.

Today Denton City Councillor Kevin Roden posted an admirable blog in response to the Denton Chamber of Commerce’s declared opposition to a fracking ban, and the fracking industry’s subsequent use of that declaration in a political mailing (“We need solutions, not political hackery: A response to the Chamber-inspired fracking mailing“).

Admirable, that is, except in one important regard.
