Recent blackmail by nuclear cheerleader Jamie Reed that Copeland/Cumbria has to accept nuclear new build and the nuclear dump or else suffer the cuts has filled the pages of the local press.
Rather a contrast to 6 years ago when he told the House of Commons:
The experience of Nirex endured by my community in the mid-1990’s was so wretched that I was minded to entitle this debate ‘fear and loathing’ He added: “As long as I have any-thing to do with it Nirex will never dig another sod of turf in West Cumbria.”
Cumbrians are saying BRING BACK NIREX, if that was fear and loathing what is happening now is a million times worse with the movers and shakers of Cumbria either nuclearised and neutered while insane cheerleaders like Jamie Reed twist the truth from one week to the next, meanwhile the nuclear waste continues to arrive to be cooled for decades by our fresh water resource.
“Fear and loathing” doesn’t cover it Jamie! Do your job and ensure Copeland has essential infrastructure without being bribed into new build “Moorcide” and a nuke dump. Get real. If nuclear ‘power’ was a real wealth creator Copeland should be the richest borough in the UK.
