Government loses nuclear power case

Quote:
Environmental campaigners have won a high court ruling which will force the government to rethink its controversial decision to back the building of new nuclear power stations.

In a highly embarrassing ruling for the government, Mr Justice Sullivan said the review process used to decide whether to support the construction of new plants was "very seriously flawed" and "procedurally unfair".

The case was brought by Greenpeace, which claimed that the government had reneged on its promise to carry out "the fullest public consultation" before making its decision.
AND...

Not in our name: campaign launched against Trident

Quote:
A powerful coalition of 100 scientists, lawyers, church leaders, actors, writers and MPs is today demanding a halt to the rush by Tony Blair towards a replacement for Britain's Trident nuclear weapon system.

Stephen Hawking, the astrophysicist, is among the prominent figures fronting the campaign, which will strengthen growing demands in Parliament for the vote on the replacement of the nuclear weapons system to be delayed until a full debate on the options has taken place.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Right Rev Rowan Williams, the author Zadie Smith, the actress Emma Thompson, the fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and the architect Richard Rogers have also signed a statement objecting to a hasty decision.

They question the wisdom of rushing into the replacement of the Trident system with a Cold War-style generation of submarine-launched nuclear missiles at a cost of 65bn over its 30 years of service, while the most serious threat is now posed by terror groups that cannot be deterred by nuclear weapons.
I am not necessarily against Nuclear Power or some form of nuclear deterrent. I just want to see due process where we actually figure out if we need either - not some rush-job web of misinformation and out and out lies such as the type that got us into the Iraq clusterfuck!

I thought I must have been watching re-runs, but it ran until 1992 according to Wiki.

At least we seem to be onto his lies now, even if it's taken many people a decade or so...

"In September of 2006, Lionel Blair and comedian Alan Carr helped save a man who was about to fall from a pier in Blackpool. The man was holding on by his fingertips, but the two men managed to pull him to safety."

He was probably throwing himself off to get away

Sorry, I digress....carry on.

after which it was rebranded as an extremely unsympathetic reality show about people with educational difficulties - 'Get a Fucking Clue'
