Theresa May going nuclear has become a LOT more dangerous than some of us were expecting

[This image is from the Daily Star, of all places – but nobody can deny that it is appropriate.]

The news has overtaken the Greenpeace petition quoted – and linked – below.

We are told that UK military capability has dwindled to the point that, in a situation of potential conflict, Theresa May may be more likely to press the nuclear button than send in the troops.

Whether that is actually true seems questionable, as we’ve all been told the UK can’t actually launch missiles without permission from the United States.

So much for our so-called independent nuclear deterrent, but that may be for the best!

Either way, the message is clear: Theresa May and nuclear power – of any kind – don’t mix.

For that reason alone, I think the petition is worth signing. Don’t you?

UK Government: Don’t Risk Billions On Nuclear Power

Hitachi is demanding government funding to save its struggling nuclear power project. If something goes wrong, we could lose billions of pounds of public money.

We don’t need new nuclear plants. Offshore windfarms are already cheaper and quicker to build – and fast-improving energy storage tech means we can have clean, reliable power instead.

We’re asking Theresa May to drop this nuclear deal and back renewables instead. Will you add your voice?

    UK column news (on YouTube) reports on the sorry status of our armed forces regularly and one of the hosts is an ex naval officer so I tend to believe him.

    Your cover image says it all about Cruella: mad as a box of frogs but immeasurably more dangerous. Can’t see any justification for Hinkly “C”. We’ve seen the success of the Culham tokamak (fusion) project as proof of concept with the international fusion project (ITER) now under construction in Saint-Paul-lès-Durance, France. Hopefully this will eventually lead to cheap, abundant power and safe as well as there are no fissile elements involved.
    We built the very first fusion reactor ZETA (Zero Energy Torus Apparatus) but of course we were at the height of the Cold War so all our efforts were concentrated in production of weapons-grade plutonium for bombs. The world’s first commercial nuclear reactor, Calder Hall, was ostensibly intended for civil electricity generation but of course it had far more serious military objectives. To put it bluntly, fusion research was ditched so all the diseased military minds could have their lethal toys to play with.
    Ironically the Soviet Union did maintain research into fusion which is why the well-developed Russian tokamak reactor has been adopted for current fusion work.
    If the UK had maintained research into fusion during the 1950s we might have well had fusion now, not 30-50 years into the future.

    The hidden cost of Nuclear Power is the Billions currently spent and projected to safeguard and attempt to ‘dispose’ of that industry’s Waste over the next 120 years or so

    Some dopes still haven’t grasped the most likely finale of this ‘end-game’ to end all ‘end-games’: that should ‘mad woman’ (or any of those crazed eejits) ever hit that nuclear ‘button’ it will effectively be the end of the UK! Period! Kaput! Dead! Sinking below the waves along with those ‘white cliffs’! The UK is not a large target and not difficult to hit: one half-decent warhead will level the lot. Eejits who still persist in this ‘deterrent’ lunacy need a good spanking with a cruise missile!
