Gorilla Resources announce huge shale gas find in Westminster, London.
Mr Mark Driller, CEO of ‘Gorilla Resources’ today announced the find of 5,200,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000, 000,000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 trillion cubic metres of gas lying directly under a large neo-gothic building alongside the Thames in Westminster, London.
“This will bring huge benefits to us …er…..I mean the area” announced Mr Driller, as he moved quickly to quell any suggestions that the development might spoil the look of the area or cause any inconvenience to residents. “There’s a veritable goldmine of gas down there and we can’t let trivial considerations like the presence of a huge polluting eyesore in the middle of the capital, or major disruption to the seat of government get in the way of us getting very rich indeed……er……I mean exploiting this valuable resource for the nation. The fact is that lots of the people in that odd medieval looking building have been happy to inflict this kind of thing on other people around the country so its only poetic justice that now its arriving right on their doorstep……”
Drilling to begin Saturday 1st December, 2012
This date will be appropriate, said Mr Driller, because this is the Saturday midway through the UN Climate Talks, (taking place this year in Qatar, an oil-rich sultanate somewhere in the desert) – and we’re helping to make sure such Talks won’t be necessary in future by scuppering any chance of moving to genuine renewable sources of energy and thereby ensuring the catastrophic destabilisation of global cimate, so that any Talks held with the aim of preventing that will be a waste of time. We will be erecting our rig in Parliament Square, or Old Palace Yard. Do come along so we can bullshit you how safe it all is………………
Beyond Parody, Royal Dutch Hell and Koch Loony Right Resources announce the discovery of vast reserves of tar sand oil in the region of Grosvenor Square, London.
Unfortunately exploitation of this valuable resource will require the demolition of Mayfair. Well, hey, it makes a change from destroying pristine forest and displacing indigenous people……. Mining is set to start on
