From Channel 4's daily news mailing list...
"Fracking 'probable' cause of quakes
[...] Almost immediately, a group called Frack Off ('fracking' is the word used for shale gas extraction) occupied one of Cuadrilla's rigs on Merseyside."
I find it highly entertaining that they assume the Battlestar Galactica reference will be familiar to all their readers without explanation. :)
Either that or the journalist doesn't get the reference themselves and is being honestly straight-faced about it :)
