This is in a National Park most of which was given or endowed by Beatrix Potter of Peter Rabbit fame. It is the indigenous home of western march Border Clans deported by the UK government so there are fewer people to fight against this nuclear dump than would otherwise be the case. (Descendants of the deported are also threatened by a dump in Mississippi — the economically poorest US state.) So, let’s see, empty the lands of its people and then make it into a nuclear dumping ground? They would do it to the Scottish Highlands if the Scottish parliament were not stopping them. The proper thing to do is for the government to empty the vaults in the City of London of their gold and use the gold to clean-up Sellafield and to pay for research, and use the vaults to store the waste. Under the UK parliament and under Downing Street are additional locations where there would be plenty of people to monitor the stuff. And, it must be monitored! The UK’s (and US’s) proposal for new nuclear build makes it more enraging still. The poor rural areas being targeted are not the ones using much of the energy either. This part of England produces the most alternative energy.

Even so there are no chances being taken and Cumbria County Council’s response to this sham CONsultation has been overseen by Councillor David Southward, you remember him? He is the nuclear cheerleader who tried to overturn the County Council’s NO vote (but ironically is strongly opposed to the…
