Why Did it Take So Long To Face Reality?

Tony Blair has long been known to favour a resurgence of nuclear power, and no matter how the Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks tries to spin it, that is exactly what this review is all about.

It comes amid concerns of a projected gap in electricity supplies that could lead . . . Complete story »
