The only way Copeland can survive the brutal budget cuts it faces is by hosting a new underground nuclear waste repository, says MP Jamie Reed.
Have your say
I note that no one has mentioned that all the geological surveys have proved that West Cumbria is totally unsuitable for an underground repository for nuclear waste, so why does Copeland Council still want to condemn the Ennerdale Valley and the rest of Cumbria to a contaminated wasteland?
I was at this meeting. To be honest.and speaking as an outsider yes it was hijacked by the nuclear lobby. I sat at the back and watched as various pro nuclear lobby group spokespeople were given preference to speak. They even appeared to have mapped out the seating ro have them every 10 chairs or so. Have to say hats off Jamie i was impressed. But that's just politics these days and just the way it is. What shocks me more is this. That given the obvious huge local concern about the cuts in Copeland the hall was no were near being full. If your concerned or interested in shaping your communities future then do more than just comment on here and think your involved. Oh and by the way Cumbria doesn't start at Whitehaven and stop at Sellafield. That's just the part you can see glowing on a dark night ;)
The only people not wanting Nuclear facilities round here likely have too much money or dont like work. Some of us rely on the nuclear industry and looked after correctly it can be safe
