Peak oil or Downs Oil?
Of course the BBC story gives extra spice by going on ad naueasm about local protesting "NIMBY" like about any drilling or extraction. Credit to the local Council for ignoring such pathetic special pleading.
But this is a good thing, for many years there have been rumours about oil bearing rocks under Windsor and the Castle, in these times of Austerity it is high time the Queen granted some licences and allowed full exploration in Berkshire too. Given the massive Government tax revenues on Oil extraction and sale, I should imagine our not-so-illustrious Business Secretary is wending his way to the Palace right now.
