I cannot say for sure that David Attenborough is ignoring my invitation last week to obstruct fracking. I wrote to David Attenborough Productions Ltd, in Richmond Surrey. Perhaps Christmas delayed my letter.
However, I have never asked anyone to do anything I was not prepared to do myself. Unfortunately I shall not be opposing fracking myself for the time being. Following an accident I am now immobile, with a plaster cast on my leg. That is of course not a reason in itself, but to be honest, I would rather not be under the weather when I do. I shall need all my faculties.
I would also prefer to be in a position to say what response I have received from David Attenborough.
