The cost of cleaning up the Sellafield nuclear site is £67.5 billion - and there is no indication when that will stop rising.
Have your say
If anyone wanted to look at the dangers of this proposal, the disaster occurring in Hanford USA as we speak should kill this argument stone dead. 6 underground containers are leaking radioactive material contaminating underground water courses with the potential to destroy the eco system of that area for 100 miles around it.
Yes A Hathaway...lets just dump Sellafield! To hell with all the waste and plants/processes that require decommissioning....surely they will just rot away over the next several thousand years? Why on earth were the govt thinking of an underground waste store and ploughing money into ridding us of the waste, when it's just as simple as dumping the idea?!?!
Even better, evryone can then take up the min wage tourism jobs and send the pesky eastern European workers packing.
As for the NHS, lets give them more Â£Â£Â£ and we can forget about what they currently waste! Free gluten-free products for everyone!!! The staff can continue with their terrible sick records too (my wife works for the NHS and the amount of sickness astounds me....especially considering they are regarded as qualified/ professional people....who, generally in other industries have more work ethics than the shop floor labour)...but hey...all that extra cash will make it look like that doesn't happen for the next few years.
Agree with Freddy but item 5, the revenue from duty may not cover the NHS cost of smoking & alcohol related illness.
The cost at Sillyfield will spiral over the coming years if the government keeps giving the money and getting nothing in return except paying americans large tax free salaries and getting projects that never deliver from contractors.
