I see the latest debacle from eu that France are hoping to get permission to build a nuclear power plant in Britain at a cost of around £ 15 billion plus we are giving those unhelpful french frogs another £ 14 million to stop migrants crossing the channel ,, just who is taking the **ss out of Britain ?? WHY cant this rotten tory gov build ur own plant? as for all these aliens just patrol the channel and if they see these lot tow them back to france . WE are far tooo soft time to grow up .AS for these talks we are are having another extension ! don't they know yet they wont comprimise !!!!

Fifty five years ago the then Labour government decided to go ahead with further nuclear power stations. However, the choice of reactor was a disaster. They opted to press on with Advanced Gas Cooled reactors.
A friend of mine was a senior engineer on the AGR station based at Dounreay in Scotland.
AGR’s used liquid sodium as the primary coolant and ,unlike water cooled reactors, the sodium flowed over the fuel rods and so became radioactive.
Imagine trying to repair leaks in the stainless steel pipe work with 30 tons of radioactive liquid sodium leaking out.
The Industry never recovered from the set back, hence the French building nuclear stations in the UK.

Was reading an article about Chinese involvement in Canadian Industry / Politics and their filthy fingers are everywhere. They lend lots of money / build major projects for poor countries all over the Southern Hemisphere and will eventually control all the trade routes.
