Donnachadh McCarthy spoke at our November 2013 event, 'What the Frack?'. Contact him on 

He offered us this quote:

"The anti-fracking movement is the front-line of the battle to reclaim our democracy and to protect our environment"

Here is some information about him:

Donnachadh McCarthy is a former Deputy Chair of the Liberal Democrats and columnist for The Independent.
Donnachadh McCarthy

His experiences at the top of the Lib Dems have led him to believe that the democratic state has been usurped by the ultra-rich.

This has led him to propose that we live in a corrupted state with four main pillars. These are the corrupted political system, the prostituted media, the criminal tax haven network and a captured academia.

Donnachadh believes that the process by which Fracking is being foisted on the British people, is a classic example of The Prostitute State in action.

If the rich control the production of thought, the dissemination of thought, the implementation of thought and the funding of thought then it is no longer a democratic state but The Prostitute State.
