John Vidal on Comment Is Free poses the nine questions Tony Blair should answer before going any further with his nuclear plans. He won’t, of course. His plan is probably to get so much money invested in the nuclear dream before he goes that whoever follows will be too scared to write it off as a poisoned legacy.
And a companion piece- nuclear power is going to be impossible without subsidies.
Plus- the Energy Review is just another dodgy dossier. (I honestly believe that for the amount that was, we now know, wasted on this review I could reduce the country’s energy consumption by so much we could turn off a small power station. Go on, Tony, give me a few million, I dare you.)
