ENERGY IS THE MAIN DRIVER OF GROWTH - NUCLEAR IS EASILY CHEAPEST - PARLIAMENT SHOULD NOT PREVENT THE FREE MARKET CHOOSING IT
Did you know that "In modern times the main driver of economic growth has been, and continues to be, energy" - all economists and all informed politicians do though most prefer not to say so.
Nuclear power is the cheapest, safest, most reliable source of electricity. Even though most of the current cost is made up of government regulations.
The AP1000 reactor is sold, off the shelf for $1 bn bought in quantity. We could have match all of our current power for £36 bn. Government intends to spend 100s of billions building windmills to replace 1/3rd. To get out of recession we have to produce more power at lower cost. Currently Britain has the most expensive electricity of any sizeable country in the world and Parliament is committed to massively raising the price.
We also see 25,000 pensioners dying unnecessarily annually from fuel poverty.
We call for Parliament to get out of the way and allow the free market to build as much nuclear capacity as there is a market for.
