In a speech to the trade union Unite, John Hutton, Business Minister in the New Labour regime declaimed: "There has never been a greater global demand for finance, equipment and skills to build and operate nuclear power stations...I want Britain to be leading the world in the development and application of this new generation of low carbon power technology."
The largest trade union affiliated to the regime listened to inspirational claims that Britain (which seems not to include Scotland when it comes to nuclear power generation or weapons storage now that New Labour has been ousted from Scottish governance) can be a "gateway to a new nuclear renaissance across Europe". These aspirations were linked to the assertion that countries across Europe wanted more nuclear power generation and accepted that harmful emissions could be reduced by embracing English and Welsh expertise and unionised labour.
The technology "offers tremendous opportunities for highly skilled jobs across the breadth [chains are a measure of length, never mind, Ed.] of the supply chain".
Unfortunately, owing to a present lack of a trained workforce, engineering skills, and nuclear power generation know how in Unite!, France will be taking a leading role in replacing aging nuclear power plants across England and Wales, half of which are currently shut down as too dangerous to run.
The advantages are: the rendering irrelevant of the human/animal mutations Bill now causing difficulties, as mutant species of all and every kind can readily be found close to current decrepit and leaking nuclear plant; and the importing of French nuclear waste, to be stored together with our own nuclear waste, thus creating much needed jobs in this flagship industry, and paying for the clean up of the last 35 years of French nuclear power production, which they would prefer to spread around us all.
