Hooray! Hinckley point has the go ahead.
Clean energy. Loads of new jobs.
Just waiting for the government and EDF to agree costs.

Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels has to be a priority. So nuclear has to be part of the mix.

The only problem is I think it's going to be a PWR rather than a magnox. It's the one the French have and they have been known to develop cracks. My oh who was a power station designer didn't like them, although he was designing the cabling runs to avoid a TMI meltdown situation.
