Come clean on nuclear waste and represent the public’s opinion

There are many different areas for debate, concern, explanation and examination that need to be dealt with before any decision is made over the possible siting of an underground repository for nuclear waste in the west of Cumbria.
Have your say
So, we build this facility in Cumbria and it's in unsuitable geology. And we know it, but we'll put plans in place so that when the geology 'shifts' and the millions of tons of rock above the GDF start moving, we can be sure that none of the containers will get accidentaly crushed and release contamination into the water table which will be flowing through the rock. In fact, put a couple of blokes down there with it so they can move the containers to another area in case of any emergency. Yeah - that will workSo how are we going to create a cavity that does not get compromised in the first place? I know, use extra strength pit props from ACME, BnQ or even Screwfix. LoL
How can a company that falsified data for waste going to Japan possibly be considered even remotely suitable for long term nuclear waste storage and care.
How some people quickly forget......
Hey Barry it said on the news last night that the Nuclear Industry also contributes 2 billion a year to the local econamy. I was neither for nor against this plan, but out of interest i wonder how many of the jobs in the lakes are full time permanent and pay a living wage?
