UK government plunges into EPR nuclear quagmire

The UK has chosen to throw itself into the French nuclear quagmire masterminded by EDF. The UK government has given planning permission to EDF to build two boondoggle EPR reactors in Somerset. The Hinkley site has been given planning permission when no long-term solution exists for the radioactive waste these new nuclear reactors will generate - which contradicts the UK position on new reactor build. Beyond Nuclear's Linda and Paul Gunter will be in Somerset with the Stop Hinkley coalition at the beginning of April for strategy meetings and public presentations. We will also be in Suffolk where two more EPRs are in the pipeline for the Sizewell nuclear site.
