What Jeremy Corbyn should have said about Sellafield

The Unions and Labour are betraying the British public with this nuclear obsession.

Nuclear Industries

David Hookes(Scientists for Global Responsibility) went canvassing in Copeland. Here is his report to Merseyside Momentum members:  

Canvassing in Copeland was very revealing- the housing estate I visited was utterly decrepit- it should have been demolished and rebuilt years ago. A number of residents mentioned that the recent MP who had resigned had taken a very well paid job at Sellafield from which he had originated. So he had neglected the constituency waiting for a better job back at his old employer (a factor not mentioned by BBC hysterical anti-Corbyn reporting).

Some of the anti-Corbyn propaganda had influenced a few voters however but when asked about what they did not like about him they were not very forthcoming.

South Dakota: Dewey-Burdock ISL Uranium Mining Aquifer Exemption Comment Deadline Extended to June 19th (Midnight)

Mining Awareness +

The deadline was listed at midnight on Friday May 19th, apparently one minute to Saturday, but it’s not clear. It was just extended to June 19th, midnight. Normally they should put 11.59 pm to make it clear, but this is now Trumpistan la-la land.

Supposedly this is about Class III and V, but appears to be Class III and IV, “Dewey-Burdock Class III and Class V Injection Well Draft Area Permits

* Class III wells are used to inject fluids to dissolve and extract minerals.
* Class IV wells are shallow wells used to inject hazardous or radioactive wastes into or above a geologic formation that contains a USDW. 
* Class V wells are used to inject non-hazardous fluids underground. Most Class V wells are used to dispose of wastes into or above underground sources of drinking water

BBC goes full Big Brother in recent announcement


Brought to our attention by Mark Doran, a new BBC document dated May 2017 contains this bizarre threat to its licence-payers:

9. Offensive or inappropriate content on BBC websites

If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BBC websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service, the BBC may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.

Here’s Mark’s screen cap of the doc:

Not only is this freakishly (yes, there’s no other word) Orwellian, it’s completely vague. Are the words “objectionable”…
