I am worried

I don't know about you, dear reader, but I am worried sick about Labour Industry Minister John Hutton's plans to build a vast number of nuclear power stations thus diverting resources from renewables; about collective and individual political failure to do anything about the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife both here and everywhere on our planet; and about the fact that the world population has more than quadrupled since 1900, more than doubled since 1960 and is increasing at a rate of 80 million a year. This cannot go on - that is what the scientists warn, but the political class of all nations has its head in the sand.

There's nothing to worry about. The government says that new nuclear power stations will have to be built by private enterprises and they will have to bear the full cost of decomissioning.

No nuclear power station has ever been built without huge dollops of public subsidy so this simply won't happen.

Unless, of course, the government is lying. But no, they wouldn't, surely...
