Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima

Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Eon think they can manipulate the new government?!

It is time for Eon/RWE to stop attempting to be given money from British taxpayers and electrcity consumers!

They will have to put their hands in their pockets and build nuclear power stations without subsidy!

We find it disgusting that two German companies can threaten the British people and government with "Give us a subsidy or else"

Remember when Golby talks about the "lights going out"  these people are avaricious global energy companies and not latter day philanthropists

Thankfully we are now in the era of LibDem/Conservative economics and they understand that every halfpenny of our money counts--especially when the alternative sees our hard earned money flowing back to Germany and France.

Huhne outlines coalition deal over nuclear power plants

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne
Lib Dem Chris Huhne says there is agreement on issue of public funding
A new generation of nuclear power plants will still be built - provided no public money is spent on them, Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has said.
Nuclear energy was an issue on which the Tories and Lib Dems were split when they formed their coalition government.
But Mr Huhne, one of five Lib Dems in the cabinet, said he believed a way could be found to satisfy both sides.
And if a consortium wanted to build new nuclear plants "that will, in all probability go ahead", he said.
Under the terms of the coalition deal published on Wednesday, Lib Dem MPs can abstain in any Commons votes on nuclear power but will not be able to bring down the government over it in a confidence vote.
The Conservatives were initially sceptical about nuclear power under David Cameron's leadership but have
fallen broadly into line with the previous Labour government's policy of replacing Britain's ageing nuclear
power plants with a new generation of privately built reactors.
The Liberal Democrats have argued that renewable energy should take priority over nuclear -
but Mr Huhne suggested there was little real difference with the Conservatives on the main issue
of whether the public should subsidise the building new plants.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4 Today's programme, Mr Huhne said: "There is absolutely no disagreement between us on the key principle that there will be no public subsidy.
"Now, if it turns out that - for the first time in decades - a consortium is prepared to build a nuclear power station without public subsidy, then... that will, in all probability, go ahead.
"But I do think there are a lot of ifs there and I do think this is a way forward which allows the integrity of the Conservative and of the Liberal Democrat positions to be maintained."
National security
He said the Liberal Democrats' preference for meeting the country's energy demands
 remained renewables, especially as the UK had potential for wind power and wave power.
He said using renewables would also improve national security, as the country
 "will be more independent of imports of key energy requirements".
Energy company E.On, which is hoping to build two nuclear power stations in Britain,
said it was not worried by the past hostility of the Liberal Democrats to nuclear energy.
Paul Golby of E.On said it would be wrong to assume that the views of individuals
 were the same as the settled policy of the government.
He said nuclear power would be needed: "I think we can demonstrate that nuclear has
 to be part of our future energy mix if we are going to keep the lights on and reduce carbon."
