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?
