British Nukes

In a convergence of two topics near and dear to my journalistic heart, the Independent reports “Blair to give his blessing to new nuclear reactors as only way to cut emissions”

Tony Blair is ready to give a new generation of nuclear power stations the go-ahead, Downing Street hinted last night.

His expert on the subject, Professor Sir David King, the Chief Scientific Advisor, who once opposed nuclear power, has told Mr Blair that the nuclear stations will be able to operate without subsidy so long as they are given lengthy contracts.
