Your money and your life. What kind of deal is that?

EDF wants to extend the life of a 40 year old nuclear reactor which has cracks in it.

So, what do you think that’s about?  Money.

EDF can patch the reactor to get another decade out of it and all the revenue that comes with it.  That is small marginal investment for large incremental cash flow.  They get the cash.  We get the risk.  Or at least the people within a few hundred kilometres of Hunterston get the risk.

Regulators need to do their job and put precaution first,  irrespective of how many three course lunches they are plied with.
