A veteran MP has launched a withering attack on the Sellafield nuclear plant, calling it “the biggest nuclear slum in Europe”.
Have your say
Labour and Tory Governments are both at fault, they sold Sellafield down the river, and because of that they are now trying to force the underground dump onto West Cumbria,a geo area that is unsuitable for deep storage... so get back to some of those worthy MP's and check out their backyards for it.
It's ironic how Sellafields getting a kicking from the government for being such a burden on the taxpayer. Shouldn't the government have spent a bit more time focussing their attention on how the site was run if it's such a huge overhead? Or is it like the banks where they turn their backs on it and hope it will sort itself out!! This is just one example of how the government are completely out of touch with the rest of the UK, do any of these MP's actually have a clue what goes on at the site, and the history behind the legacy problems associated? Obviously not. It was government and MOD activities in 50's which left the site with the problems which attribute it to being a so called "nuclear slum". The plants and facilities constructed in recent years are well run and safe.
For that amount of money, Mr Todd Wright could afford to buy outright a half a million Â£ house every year, then actually stop at Storrs Hall (B&B best room Â£122k)and I suppose anything that's left he could plough into his retirement pension.I wish I was a million behind him . . .
