Lords Select Committee treated to Nuclear Porky Pies by Michael Fallon..Mmm- tasty

s-WONGA-MICHAEL-FALLON-small

Michael Fallon MP, Minister of State for Business and Energy at DECC

has just said in oral evidence to a Lords Select Committee that:

it is “not right a county council should have a veto over a GDR”;

a wider county has no real interest in the siting of a GDR;

that the consultation has already ended on the GDR siting.

All of which is untrue

This is vile pigs swill served up as factoid.

Of course the County Council has a very real “interest” there is NOTHING more important to Cumbria than the Government’s

push to dump existing and future heat generating nuclear waste in a mega mine under Cumbria.

This is of “real interest” not only to Cumbria but also to our neighbours across the Irish Sea and beyond.

The CONsultation is of course a sham but it has NOT ended- due to the Government’s incompetence, and lets be honest why would they even bother being competent on a sham CONsultation the outcome of which they have predetermined.

Our only hope is to RESIST it is clear that Government is desperate to be seen to have a solution to the nuclear waste problem and dumping it under Cumbria is it. NO!!

Object to Michael Fallon’s false testimony to the House of Lords Select Committee On Science and Technology
made on Tuesday 10 December, Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster At 10.45am Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP, Minister of State for Energy, Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)

Make the points that
Cumbria County Council had a right of veto under the Governments own rules of engagement on the MRWS process.
Cumbria County Council has a real interest in opposing and halting the proposed geological dumping of heat generating radioactive waste in a mine 25km square and 1000m deep
Neighbouring Counties and Countries have a real interest in opposing and halting the proposed geological dumping of heat generating radioactive waste in a mine 25km square and 1000m deep
and the CONsultation has been extended to 19th December due to Government incompetence in giving out false contact information for submissions.

  1. Someone – please – make this lying cretin Fallon his sword … ! Shared on my FB (Chelim Yrneh)

  2. from today’s Independent newspaper..”.Mr Fallon said his “instinct” was that county councillors should not be allowed to decide whether or not toxic nuclear waste should be buried in Cumbria.His defiance is another fillip to an industry already buzzing after EDF effectively secured a £14bn power station project at Hinkley Point in Somerset and Hitachi landed the £8bn Wylfa project in Wales. The dump would create 1,000 construction jobs and 500 posts to oversee nuclear waste. Mr Fallon also hinted that the Government may impose a nuclear dump on a site it deems suitable. ”
    ……..
    this indicates that the CONsultation and all subsequent CONsultations on continuation of the new build/dump agenda are a predetermined sham. Only visible activism from all quarters, loud and strong with an unequivocal NO will make a jot of difference… Even if you are one voice …shout … SHOUT. The more voices actively opposing this the more chance we have of not being Fuk’d

    It would be interesting to know if Fallon simply doesn’t want a dump in Kent or if there is something else going on with the Porky Pie lies.
