An offer from the government too good for any councillor to refuse


Malcolm Wicks, the energy minister, was on Newsnight tonight talking about the nuclear issues, and came up with an astonishing statement that almost stopped Jeremy Paxman in his tracks. In response to Paxman's question as to where all the nuclear waste would be stored, Malcolm Wicks replied

"We are seeking volunteer communities to come forward and indicate that they would be prepared to become nuclear storage sites"
Well, what an offer. I bet there are councillors all across the country tight now writing motions to put before their council's demanding that their area's become a nuclear storage site.

It would certainly get interesting if communities are allowed to volunteer each other. I'm sure I could think of a few towns and cities that deserve a nuclear reactor nearby....

I think that the councillors would have been more "tight" at Christmas. Particularly Bob Piper...
