Deal to build UK nuclear plant should be finalised within weeks
Ministers and EDF have agreed on controversial £25bn development of Hinkley Point C, with most of upfront costs provided by Chinese companies.
Let's hope the Chinese aren't providing the plant operating manuals as well.
And all thanks to the 'greenest government' to date.
What was their logo before the election - 'Vote blue, go green'?
Vote blue, no green and see red in my case, I'm afraid. B******s!
